What is the MASTERS of ArchiCAD SUMMIT?
The summit is a LIVE two day online conference on February 5 & 6, 2015, which will be broadcast via GoToWebinar and also recorded for permanent reference.
Each Master will give a 60 minute presentation showing some of their projects and discussing how they approach their work in ArchiCAD. This is not just "show and tell" - every session will have actionable training components in which the presenter shares tips and tricks, and teaches you methods and strategies that you can use in your office.
Sessions will start every 90 minutes between 9 am and 6 pm PST (California time = GMT - 8). You may attend all of the sessions LIVE, or as many as you wish and have time for. When you watch the live sessions in your web browser, you'll be able to ask questions of the presenter and make comments through the chat box.
It's going to be a very exciting, community-building event, with hundreds of ArchiCAD users from around the world tuning in!
What if I can't fit this into my schedule?
Each session will be recorded and made available to registrants in a private password-protected area of this website.
Whether or not you attend the live sessions, you'll have permanent access to these presentations, so you can get maximum benefit of the training. You'll want to refer to many of these videos more than once as you continue your journey towards your own ArchiCAD mastery.
The MASTERS of ArchiCAD SUMMIT will be a permanent addition to your ArchiCAD reference library that you'll find of great value for years to come.

Is the Summit "LIVE" or "recorded"?
It’s both. From 9 am to 6 pm PST (California time) on both Thursday February 5 and Friday February 6, we’ll broadcast live through GoToWebinar and you’ll be able to tune in, watch and listen, and ask questions.
The sessions will also be recorded and available for permanent reference through this website. Access to the videos will be given to everyone who registers for the Summit.
What if I can't stay for the entire conference?
All sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants through this website. You’ll be able to watch them at your convenience.
Can I ask questions during the session? Can I get in touch with presenters afterwards?
You may ask questions by typing into the chat window during the broadcast. As time allows, we’ll address questions from the audience; any questions that aren’t answered will be reviewed afterwards and may get a response by email.
You’ll get contact information for the presenters and may follow up with them if you wish.
Is this an official Graphisoft event?
This online conference is an independent educational event, created and produced by veteran ArchiCAD user and former reseller Eric Bobrow in conjunction with the ArchiCAD users who are featured in the program. All of us are extremely grateful to Graphisoft for the wonderful software that they develop and support. For more information or to purchase ArchiCAD, please visit the Graphisoft website.
How long are these presentations?
Each presenter will give a one hour talk and demonstration. We’ll have a few minutes at the beginning for introductions and a quick chat, and a few minutes at the end for questions from attendees.
Sessions will be scheduled 90 minutes apart, so we’ll have a few minutes clear for breaks and to set up the next speaker.
Only some talks look interesting to me - is it OK if I watch only the ones that I like?
Absolutely! Pick and choose the ones that seem most relevant to your practice. Some may become more interesting to you later – and you’ll be able to watch the recordings at that point if you wish.
This will be a permanent resource, a “reference library” of ideas and practical inspiration that you may want to review from time to time.
Is anything going to be sold? I want to learn, not be given a pitch.
All presenters will focus on sharing ideas, examples and practical tools and methods. Our aim is to educate and inspire, not to sell you on anything. After all, you already have ArchiCAD!
Some presenters may have something to offer that will take you deeper along your path towards mastery.
