Global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. invites professionals, educators and students in the AEC, landscape and entertainment industries to attend the third annual Vectorworks Design Summit from 18-20 September 2017 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel in MD.
The conference includes three days of industry sessions, tech support, networking events and inspiring keynotes, as well as hands-on training opportunities to arm designers with the resources to improve their company’s bottom line.
“The Vectorworks Design Summit is the most efficient and cost-effective way to obtain software training,” said Nicole Davison, vice-president of sales at Vectorworks. “Based on feedback from our community of designers, this year’s event boasts even more lab-style training sessions and one-on-one tech support, along with multiple accredited speaking sessions by industry thought leaders. We’re always looking for more opportunities to make designers’ jobs easier and help them grow their skills.”
The agenda includes plenty of networking events, like the exhibitor happy hour and the Customer Appreciation Dinner, as well as all the lunches and breaks between sessions. In addition, there will be two keynotes and more than 30 sessions led by industry experts, like Greg Henderson, founder of Arx Pax Labs, Inc.; Steve Shelley, president of Field Template LLC; Bryan Goff, director of design and sciences at Grey Leaf Design, Inc.; and Todd McCurdy, vice-president at Huitt-Zollars.
Session and training topics span a variety of areas, including: the basics of building information modelling (BIM), moving from 2D to 3D modelling, water-efficient landscape design, working with DWG files, graphical scripting, event design and more; multiple sessions will offer continuing education credits.
Last year’s Design Summit received high marks from attendees, such as Chris Burgin of Axxis Inc., who said his favourite part of the Design Summit was, “learning tips to make my workflow faster, learning about upcoming and new features and meeting other people who are excited about Vectorworks.”
