The inaugural ARCHICAD by the Beach event was held by BIM6x, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, from October 28 - November 4, 2018. A contingency of 63 people converged on the gorgeous Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas for the highly anticipated event.
Half of the concept was to bring passionate ARCHICAD users together to be taught by some of the best ARCHICAD experts in the world, including representatives from GRAPHISOFT HQ in Budapest. 10 trainers delivered 24 hours worth of engaging and highly informative presentations, complete with example files, slideshows, and video recordings for attendees to take with them. Additionally, the resoundingly popular ARCHICAD Concierge sessions gave attendees the opportunity to have their questions answered by the trainers of their choice with one-on-one sessions throughout the week.
The other half of the concept behind ARCHICAD by the Beach was to gather in a gorgeous location. Cabo San Lucas boasts tropical weather and attendees were treated to beautiful sunny days and clear warm evenings. The Riu Palace is an all-inclusive resort, so everyone put their wallets and purses away, and enjoyed the 6 restaurants, 7 bars and all the amenities the resort had to offer. The four sparkling pools and ocean swimming seemed to be the most popular! Plus the event was peppered with social events such as a tour to a nearby Authentic Mexican town and a sunset cruise on the final night, so there was plenty of activities to keep the attendees as busy as they wanted to be.
