Official Event Host Hotels

Access all hotel information.

PLM World/Siemens PLM Connection - Americas has been made aware of false promotions and fraudulent collection of credit card information for Siemens PLM Connection – Americas’ Housing through other, unauthorized housing companies. PLM World/Siemens PLM Connection – Americas will never call you to book housing and will only point you to the hotel page on the Siemens PLM Connection – Americas website for reservations. If you are contacted by any other company offering to make hotel reservations for you, we urge you not to book with them as they are not affiliated with Siemens PLM Connection - Americas and therefore are not authorized to make reservations on Siemens PLM Connection - Americas’ behalf. While they may offer special rates, unauthorized companies typically require non-refundable pre-paid reservations, and often move individuals to other hotels without notice. If you book with any of these unauthorized companies, Siemens PLM Connection – Americas cannot protect you if there is a problem with your reservation when you arrive in Indianapolis.

Sunday Activities

Pedal your way down Indianapolis’ beautiful downtown streets or join your peers on the golf course before diving into all the educational events throughout the week.

Operation Gratitude Project

OP_GRAT_BnR_full_logo_web.jpg

Monday-Thursday | PLM World HUB
Join your peers in giving back! PLM World is partnering with the charitable organization Operation Gratitude. A few minutes of your time will help supply much needed personal items to U.S. troops all over the world.

We made it easy for you to participate. If you have a spare minute or two, please stop by the Operation Gratitude area near the RUG booth and assemble a few care kits. Our goal is to assemble 500 care kits that will be placed in complete care packages to ship overseas. It is a great way to show appreciate to those who give so much!

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages filled with food, entertainment, hygiene, and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home.

Photography and Video Release

PLM World may have photographers/videographers present in General Sessions, Breakouts, Training Rooms and common areas. These photographs may be used on our website or in future PLM World marketing pieces. If you object to this usage, politely notify the photographer/videographer if they approach you.
