With the fast-paced growth of technology spreading throughout the industry, such as BIM and VR, professionals want to know what works.  AIA Dallas and TEXO present TAP-IN, an event to offer architects and contractors insight into the technology available in building design and construction.  A wide variety of firms will be discussing their research, development, collaboration, and implementation of technology in a series of short lectures and panel discussions.  Meet with design professionals and contractors as they talk about how to utilize technology in their practices.
