Vision 20/20 Competition

Proudly Sponsored by 


Big Data (deep insight)

What is it?

The Vision 20/20 Competition, is a fast paced and fun look into the future, done live and judged by your peers in real time. As you can perhaps tell by the title, this competition is your chance to be a Futurist, presenting your ideas about where you think the industry is going, or should go.


The format is 20 slides, of 20 seconds each, for a total of 6 minutes & 40 seconds to share your vision of the future. Think of it as a live abstract proposal, because the Grand Prize winner get's to present their ideas as a full session at RTC Europe 2017!

The topic for this year is Big Data (deep insight). We all know "Big Data" is a hot topic, but how do we make that data useful in the AECO world? How do we turn all that Data into Knowledge, what Insight is to be gained when we do, and what Impact does that have on the built environment? It's a broad topic, and the three finalists are sure to inspire us, motivate us, and maybe even startle us.

Come show us where all this data is leading us. Come share your Vision!

What are the Prizes?

1st Prize: Speakership (including registration and 5 nights accommodation) at RTC Europe 2017
2nd Prize: HTC Vive Virtual Reality headset
3rd Prize: €300 visa pre-paid card
