AIA 2012 Event Report: Bluebeam shows architects that ‘anything is possible’


A few weeks ago, team Bluebeam took on Washington, D.C. for the 2012 AIA National Convention and Expo. Armed with three new products – Revu 10, Bluebeam Vu iPad, and Bluebeam Vu Windows – we knew that AIA would be a great opportunity to show attending architects that anything is possible when you digitize your workflows with Bluebeam.

To help spread the word, we took over all the ad space at the DC Metro’s Mt. Vernon station – located conveniently at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, where AIA was being held.

Charged by the buzz these ads generated, team Bluebeam had a fantastic time demonstrating our latest products to AIA attendees in our newly updated trade show booth.

There was lots of energy in the Bluebeam booth.

AIA was a great opportunity to share how anything is possible when you digitize design reviews, RFIs responses, punchlists and more with Bluebeam’s PDF-based solutions.

A lot of attendees were really interested in learning more about digitizing their workflows with Revu and Vu.

Attendees were especially interested in Revu 10’s new 3D PDF capabilities. Revu users can now markup 3D views, and Revu CAD and Revu eXtreme users can create 3D PDFs from Revit, Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate.

Of course, AIA wasn’t all work and no play. At Bluebeam, we love to eat tasty food, especially local delicacies. So, we ate mussels. Every day.

All in all, AIA was a great show. Thank you to everyone who visited us at our booth. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
