Cadspec's AU London 2018 Review – 30 July 2018

AU London is a conference for those who design, create and make the world around us and provides attendees with the opportunity to connect with the best in the business, share technical knowledge, solve unique business challenges, and gain a deeper understanding of cross-industry opportunities. We’ve caught up with some of the Cadspec team to find out what went on over the course of the two days… Hi Guys!

How would you rate the event?

The event provided a fantastic opportunity for us to connect with other AEC/MFG industry professionals to discuss the latest technologies and developments. It was highly beneficial to discuss some of the latest projects that are going on, particularly surround BIM developments. Our Technical Sales Specialist Lee commented:

"I would give the event an 8/10. There was a good range of industries being represented and a range of solutions on show to discuss"

What kind of conversations did you have?

We had some great conversations and in particular a wide range of enquiries surrounding BIM for manufacturing. We’re looking forward to getting involved with some content creation projects after some positive discussions at the event. We also had a lot of interest in our add ons for Autodesk Revit and of course the Desktop Metal Studio System that we were lucky enough to have on our stand. We had visitors enquiring about metal 3D printing for their prototyping needs.

What kind of people were you speaking to?

The team spoke to a range of people from Designers to Architects and Students. Autodesk were offering free classes over the course of the event which created a lot of interest. It was really great to see people so eager to discover the potential of the Autodesk software range and we were able to follow up with these people after to discuss some of the AEC and MFG collections on offer.

Our Manufacturing Application Engineer Shaun commented:

"I had some really interesting conversations with the likes of structural engineers, CAD designers, architects and manufacturing specialists. There was such a range of people attending the conference, it was great and really kept me on my toes"

What products/technology were people most interested in?

We saw a great amount of interest in the AEC and product design and manufacturing collections this year. Autodesk have added a range of software to the collection as well as enhanced toolsets which help to streamline projects as well as increase user functionality locally. We’re looking forward to following up with some of the enquiries  over the next few weeks.

How did you find the seminars you attended?

The seminars were one of the best parts of the conference and we got some really useful information on the latest Autodesk and industry developments out of them. Our Technical Sales Specialist Lee commented:

"I attended a seminar on employing digital strategy for house builders and this was so useful for my line of work. It offered a wider insight into the upcoming developments within the AEC industry and I’m looking forward to some interesting conversations over the foreseeable future. It was particularly great to discuss the latest projects and developments with other like minded professionals at the seminar"

Our team had a fantastic two days at the Autodesk event. Thank you to all of those who attended our stand and had a chat with the team; we had some great technology on show which went down really well with attendees.
