The Fabrication Forum at Connect & Construct is back – and poised to be better than ever!

Michael Gustafson

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is gaining steam and stands to disrupt our industry! Are you prepared for what’s coming? Do you want to see what your peers are doing?

This year’s Fabrication Experience is tailored specifically to help you answer these and other pressing questions, giving you more of what you care about. Based on valuable feedback we received from last year’s attendees, we are excited to make this year’s event even more relevant and more valuable to you.

What can you expect during the event?

Whether you are a Specialty Trade Contractor, a Building or a Structural Engineer, this is your chance to learn about leading developments in your field, while also enjoying being part of a community with professionals just like you.  From topics like minimizing risk and improving collaboration, to maximizing your competitive differentiation, there will be numerous classes and presentations to help you get ahead.

This year we are delivering an even more fabrication tailored experience within Connect & Construct at Autodesk University.  Aimed at senior managers and above, the event will offer a total of 15 classes focusing on Project Collaboration, Prefabrication and Modular Construction, Construction Modeling, Virtual Design and Construction, and much, much more.

You will hear from experts on DfMA – what it is, how it’s disrupting the marketplace and why it’s critical to your business – as well as learn about the current Autodesk product strategy roadmap and product vision for the Building Design and Engineering segment.

At the end of the day you’ll be invited to a special reception where you’ll have the chance to relax and network with your peers as well as contractors, designers, engineers and fabricators.
