Industry professionals and thought-leaders from top U.S., and global design and construction firms will return for the Bluebeam Extreme Conference (XCON), the essential event for building professionals.
The conference will be held on August 23 and 24 at the Marriott Marquis in San Diego.
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.
