The Detroit Regional Users Group conference was held yesterday (October 18th) in Troy, Michigan. The board of directors and events committee knocked it out of the park by having 620 people from over 125 companies in attendance.
This was the largest RUG event ever held anywhere in the world and is the 3rd largest gathering of Siemens PLM Software users after the US and European National events.
What a fantastic day was enjoyed by all in attendance. The entire event had an electric atmosphere with a buzz of positive and animated networking conversations occurring all day long.
With 34 presentations, 20 partners in our vendor fair, 3 hands on training sessions and great door prizes, there was a tremendous amount of value for everyone.
We had a great blend of presentations with keynotes from Dave Shook delivering the Siemens Business Report, Federico Pasetti from Chrysler sharing how Fiat and Chrysler are using NX and Teamcenter to implement Global Product Development processes , Dave Taylor and Stefan Jockusch sharing Siemens vision and strategy to meet emerging PLM trends. We had several other customer presentations from TI Automotive, Mercury Marine, Ford Motor Company and 7 partner presentations.
We have shown how successful the GO BIG conference model can be and are looking forward to planning an even bigger and better event in 2013.
Photos and video will be posted on PLM World in the coming days.
