Now that the speakers have spoken, the winners have won and the headaches from the post event tweet up have finally started to fade, here's our round-up of all the action.

We didn't manage to personally thank those involved (amateur and in-experienced host!), so would like to take this opportunity to thank Michael, Andrew, Jenny and the crew at The Building Centre, Sharika and Neill from COMIT, Chris from Competitive Advantage and CIMCIG, our sponsors MobiBiz, the other speakers Andrew, Lars, Bob and Anna and most importantly, all of you who attended.

The iPad 3 Winner

657 people voted in our first ever #BEapps event each corresponding to a number depending on when they voted.  We then devised a plan that each speaker and The Building Centre's Michael James would pick a number between 1-100 to determine a winner.  We started at -6 and Michael picked a number between 1-63 so that everyone had an equal chance of winning.

And so with this very simple?! calculation now made, the winner of the iPad 3 is...........Claire Crowley of AHMM Architects! 

We'll be making contact with Claire to give her the good news and arrange delivery of her brand new iPad3 to download all those great apps!

Thanks to all the organizers.

Hi guys, thanks for a great event, good to get some people together around this field.
Good to get mention in the Independent Property Blog too! http://blogs.independent.co.uk/2012/03/28/built-environment-mobile-apps-competition-winners/
I found Andrew Hudson-Smith's talk really interesting because it went beyond marketing with apps into some of their other really exciting areas of potential - tagging, AR, location based data. I think what makes an App really sticky is its usefulness. How can we make our apps more useful?

Thanks for your comments guys. Definitely a good start for apps in the built environment.

It seems that a #BEapps 2013 will now be on the cards so it would be great to know what people would like to see there?
