I spent last week in San Francisco, staffing Bluebeam Software’s booth at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention and Expo. The AIA Expo is always a great show for Bluebeam. After all, our PDF editor is designed specifically for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
But AIA 2009 was extra special.
From the very first morning, I could tell there would be something different about this year. Almost immediately, show attendees swarmed our booth. There was definitely a lot of excitement in the air. You can see it in this video:
Not only did we meet a lot of interested attendees, but several current Bluebeam users, too. I can’t count how many times I heard someone say “I use Bluebeam every day and I love it”. We also saw a lot of Bluebeam users bring their friends and project partners to our booth, so they too could learn about Revu.
In addition to all the Bluebeam love, the buzz in our booth was about using Bluebeam to go paperless. And it wasn’t just one feature in Bluebeam that sparked this excitement, but the product as a whole. Attendees saw how Bluebeam’s intuitive interface, custom PDF markup and editing tools for AEC and simplicity could help them make a paperless workflow a reality.
Thank you to everyone who visited us at AIA. You truly made it an outstanding show for us. We’re already planning a very unique way for our users to get involved in our booth at AIA 2010 in Miami, and I can’t wait to reveal the details to you. So check back frequently for more information, and remember to keep on PDF’ing!
