The Revit Technology Conference (RTC) hosted its fifth annual conference in Washington, DC at the Crystal Gateway Hotel last month. RTC is an annual conference for Autodesk Revit users and Revit advocates to explore the latest technology and industry trends, learn from the top experts in the field, gain valuable insights from local and international users, and of course, have a little fun!
CADD Microsystems and Global eTraining partnered together in the expo hall to offer some really cool prizes to those that dared to put their Revit knowledge to the test – to see how they fared against fellow RTC attendees. Anyone that stopped by the booth or had an opportunity to meet Andrea, Eva-Maria, and Almira, was given access to the 25 question quiz and a free 7-day trial of the Autodesk library, which was hosted on the CADD Community. It was a tough competition and the Revit pros really showed their expertise, but four lucky prize winners came out on top:
Rebecca Frangipane, Ryan Companies – Microsoft Surface
Aaron Bulla, EEA Consulting Engineers – FitBit Flex
Noah Harburger, Ayers/Saint/Gross – Remote control helicopter
Nick Kovach, BOKA Powell – Remote control helicopter
As for the conference itself, the exhibit hall was the central hub – buzzing with great conversations, food, networking, and some really interesting and equally intriguing exhibits. Revit founders, Leonid Raiz and Irwin Jungreis, keynoted the conference by reminiscing on the origins of Revit and the original Revit team, who jokingly referred to themselves as the “Revitlution.” During our time at RTC, we also had the opportunity to attend a dinner at the National Postal Museum, which was surprisingly filled with way more exciting things than just stamps, not to mention a souvenir stamp of your face. The conference wrapped up with a highlight of the Top 10 most useful Revit tips and the reveal of next year’s location in Phoenix, Arizona. The event would not have been complete without Lynn Allen’s hilarious speech, photo booth shenanigans and the 18th century costumes and wigs at the dinner gala.
CADD Microsystems and the Global eTraining team had a blast at RTC this year and can’t wait join everyone next year in Phoenix.
