Join us for a deep dive into the ever changing archviz landscape.

The world of architecture is changing fast. New technology is both responding to and driving change. Developments in AI, Cloud, and AR/VR, promise to change how buildings are designed and constructed entirely. 

Learn from our expert panelists how visualization toolsets are adapting to the challenges of this new world, as well as its knock-on effects on the industry as a whole. This is an invaluable chance to get ahead of the curve of new technology and techniques.

Join us in Melbourne on July 13 and then in Sydney on July 18!

We will start with light breakfast refreshments. Hope to see you there!

* This event is proudly brought to you by Chaos, Digistor, and Storm FX
