Hong Kong Manifesto was once again signed by iTWO visionaries to show their support for iTWO New Thinking, New Working and New Technology, and their commitment to the vision of transforming construction to one of the most advanced industry with iTWO technology.

Podium discussion was moderated by Prof. Joaquim Diaz from Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen and by Professor Martin Fischer from Stanford University. During the gala dinner, 18 iTWO Awards were selected and presented for outstanding iTWO practice based on Stanford University research.

On the third day of the conference a hands-on lab session has been held in the University of Hong Kong to introduce iTWO technology in a collaborative lab environment and offer hands-on experiences to participants.

The iTWO community was formed in November 2013 during the first conference in Hong Kong. Last year, more visionaries from different countries have joined the iTWO community to run together in this transformation journey. With iTWO World 2015 RIB Software AG looks back on a successful continuation of the annual global iTWO community gathering. In the new era of industry 4.0, iTWO has been developed to integrate plan and design, construction and production, operation and maintenance into a life cycle cloud based solution. Aligning with iTWO factory, prefabrication technology and logistic technology, iTWO 4.0 will create an intelligent construction eco-system which will greatly increase the efficiency of construction.
