Confluence Professional Development

A unique gathering of the world’s leading design and engineering practitioners

and technology providers.

Technologies and their successful implementation are critical to moving firms, practices, and the industry as a whole forward.

Confluence brings together Design Technology leaders from leading AEC firms and product management leadership from key AEC software companies and service providers.

GOAL: Provide an environment where timely conversations can influence short-term development and implementation goals.

FORMAT: Confluence events are limited to 50 participants splitting roughly between 2/3 practitioners and 1/3 technology providers. Each event is themed and provides a facilitated series of presentations, group discussions and opportunities to engage.


“Best conference of the year.” – Joel Pennington, Head of Product, VIMaec


HISTORY: The first Confluence event was held in 2019 in Lexington, KY, home of AVAIL, with 35 participants engaging in 3 days of conversations. Now in its 5th year, Confluence has hosted over 100 individual participants representing the industry’s leading thinkers.

FUTURE: The popularity of the annual 3-day event in Lexington is leading us to reach a wider audience for this important mission.  In 2023, we will be hosting a series of 1-day events in Southern California in May and NYC in August.


“I saw so much value in the event.” – Dan Dankert, CAD/BIM/VDC Department Manager, Mead & Hunt
