BIM World MUNICH 2022 - established trade fair for digital solutions in the construction industry took place from November 22 - 23 in Munich. Finland has accompanied BIM World MUNICH since 2017 and it has always been represented with own Finnish BIM Pavilion.
Some of Finland's leading BIM players in the construction sector presented their latest BIM-based ideas and technologies at the BIMWorld trade fair 2022 in Munich
Finland has been among the earliest adopters of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and therefore is a mayor key player in driving the innovations for the AEC industry.
With this backround Finland has received this year official Partner Country status from the Organizing Committee of BIMWorld Munich.
The Finnish Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade, Mr. Ville Skinnari, will virtually participate in Welcome Session on Day 1. In addition, visitors to BIM World MUNICH can look forward to a Finnish Get Together with typical Finnish specialties on the first evening, hosted by the exhibitor of the Finnish BIM Pavilion and supported by Business Finland.
Even the Finnish Ambassador Mrs. Anne Sipiläinen will personally give the official speech at the BImWorldMunich.
In this Finland Partner Country year, we want to celebrate together current and future Finnish-German collaboration in BIM business.
The basis is in OpenBIM, which has been set as a standard by governmental actors. However, OpenBIM is not only driven by the government. Currently, the whole AEC industry and it´s enthuastic people behind these companies are supporting OpenBIM!
Anna-Riitta Kallinen, Owner of ARK Consulting/ARKCON, is Ambassador of BIM World MUNICH and supports the export business and marketing for Finnish BIM companies with incredible commitment and success.
“The Finnish collaboration within the BIM World Munich network started already in 2017. Since then, the joined offering of Finnish companies has been steadily growing in significance and in visibility. Some also say we have the most successful annual after-venue party, offering relaxed collaboration and networking during the two days of BIM collaboration and latest news in the business.
Part of the inspiring spirit of the Finnish pavilion is the open BIM collaboration that has a strong foothold in Finland. Common national BIM requirements and open innovative approach to BIM motivates companies and their clients to appear side by side also in this most important annual German BIM venue. Every year of attendance has brought added value to the companies in terms of client collaboration, latest developments in the German market and networking with overseas partners.”
