Bluebeam XCON 2022: Business Transformation at Scale

Pasadena, CA (July 26, 2022) - Industry professionals and thought-leaders from top US and global design and construction firms will return for the Bluebeam Extreme Conference (XCON), the essential event for building professionals driving change and transforming the way our world is built, being held in San Diego, California, from August 23-24, 2022.

Returning as an in-person event, XCON welcomes industry leaders, influencers and innovators who want to explore the latest trends in digital construction, deepen their understanding of Bluebeam’s solutions, and forge strategic partnerships. XCON 2022 will feature over 50 lectures, training sessions, customer panels and case studies focused on training, security, improving access and leveraging data insights across projects and teams.

“XCON provides an incredible opportunity for building professionals to come together to listen, learn, and share solutions about some of the toughest problems the industry faces,” said Kristine Plemmons, Bluebeam global vice president, marketing. “The real value in XCON lies beyond the trainings and case-studies and keynotes. Attendees tell us they find the most value in the connections they make with other professionals who deeply understand the same specific issues and challenges they face, and in the solutions they uncover together here at the conference. With representatives from Bluebeam’s product, engineering, and executive teams joining in those same discussions, real problems get solved in real-time at XCON. And that’s how we build better together.”

Alongside four tracks of training seminars, Bluebeam will host an Interactive Zone at the conference demonstrating how integration and interoperability amplify the power of Bluebeam across building phases. Exhibitors to include Platinum Sponsors Reconstruct, Dropbox and ATG, as well as HoloBuilder, US CAD, Newforma, Raken, OpenSpace, Volanti, SDS2, Kelar Pacific and the Construction Progress Coalition. XCON will feature keynote presentations from Bluebeam executives focusing on business transformation and our product roadmap, with The B1M’s Fred Mills on hand to present the Bluebeam Extreme Awards, celebrating the innovative people and organizations using Bluebeam to transform the way they build.

“XCON is about more than just the sessions and workshops and the deep-dives,” continued Fred Mills, founder and host of The B1M, the world’s largest and most subscribed-to video channel for construction, architecture and engineering. “It’s where you get a chance to meet and talk with people from around the world who are solving the same problems you are and discuss what they have found actually works. I am so pleased that XCON is happening in-person again this year — the best part of the event is the community it brings together, and it’s a good one.”

“It’s really helped me keep in tune with what industry leaders are doing, because they’re here at this conference,” said Greg Martin, The Weitz Company. “Our industry is about building buildings, but it really comes down to the relationships and Bluebeam has really fostered that.”
