SOLIDWORKS World 2018 is coming live to you in just a few weeks! It’s an awesome event showcasing multi-industry innovation, the latest in 3D design, STEM programs, and so much more. It’s a key event we especially look forward to. We are so thrilled to showcasing again this year in booth 933! Our previous SOLIDWORKS World 2018 blog talked about the agenda, looked at last year’s highlights, and what we can expect for 2018. In today’s blog we take a quick look at the agenda, reveal our special guest at the booth, and what we are most looking forward to.

This year we expect another great SOLIDWORKS World. SOLIDWORKS World 2018 takes place in Los Angeles. Pre-events begin with registration (of course) and then an application engineer workshop, CAD manager’s boot camp, and followed by SOLIDWORKS certification exams and a welcome reception. Last year we had a Superbowl party on the show floor. This year our PA based team will celebrate as the Eagles take on the Patriots and we kick off the event. The start of day one really moves it into high gear with breakfast and registration along with a general session – SOLIDWORKS has a history of great keynotes and we’re excited to listen this year. Next up are breakout sessions jam packed with everything SOLIDWORKS and innovation you can think of and an evening reception. Day two and three follow a similar format with the SOLIDWORKS famous special event Tuesday evening.

What are we are really looking forward to? Think: Future, Think: Innovation, Think: Next is Now! These three themes span each day of the event with presenters from Gian Paolo Basi, CEO of Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS to Neri Oxman, MIT, on the Cycle of Creativity, to Kyoungchul Kong on wearable robotics. Additionally, we’re really looking forward to the Partner Pavillion Open – where we will be able to see the biggest worldwide exhibition of SOLIDWORKS partner solutions come together in one space – some of the world’s most innovative products and services as well as a chance to network and stay up to date on what’s happening in our world.

As always, we expect to see some pretty great engineering in action at SOLIDWORKS World 2018. Come see us in booth 933 if you are there, and tuned for an upcoming post-show blog that will include coverage of the event and all of the exciting things we’ve experienced. We hope to see you soon!
