And just like that, our BIGGEST and best 12d Tech Forum is over! It was an unbelievable three days, jam packed with 12d training content, product announcements, project case studies, and industry insights.

COVID-19 changed it up for us this year, as it did for everyone else in the industry and world. After cancelling our 2020 face-to-face event, we hosted our first virtual industry summit, 100% online.

From October 19-21, we had thousands of engineering and construction professionals join us for over 80 hours across 220 session of industry masterclass training. Whether you were a graduate or a superuser of 12d, there were sessions for everyone. And delivered by 80 subject matter experts, the greatest minds and leaders in the industry.

It was all hosted on a professional online event platform, with 6 streams of content. 5 of those, our ‘Birds of a Feather’ breakout rooms were focused on a particular topic – Design, Survey, Water, Data Management, and Training.
