buildingSMART International Awards 2023

The final presentations for the openBIM Awards 2023 took place in a hybrid format during the buildingSMART International Standards Summit Lillestrøm 2023, on Wednesday 20th September. An elite jury was put in place for each category, who watched and deliberated live in Norway. The winners were announced on the same evening at an Awards Ceremony Gala Dinner.

An extensive international jury further narrowed the candidates down to 22 finalists spread over 9 categories.
