The Agenda Committee is looking for you to share your knowledge and expertise by presenting at one of our Knowledge Theaters, to be held inside the Solutions Center. Presentations are limited to 20 minutes and should be high energy and contain information that can be immediately used by the audience. These presentations are an ideal opportunity for you to share a usage tip or best practice that resulted in savings for your company.

Presenters will be required to provide their own laptop for this session. Additional audio visual including a screen, microphone and podium will be provided.

While the Customer Call for Presentations for the technical tracks closed on January 31st, Partners may continue to purchase a speaking slot in the Solution Sessions Connection. All sessions presented at Siemens PLM Connection - Americas should be educational and informative, and not commercial in nature. Partners must submit their session through the below Call for Presentations to the Solution Session in addition to purchasing the speaking slot.

  • We encourage all partners submitting sessions to collaborate and co-present with a user.
  • To be considered for the user connection tracks, ensure your submission complies with the submission timeline and is not a sales pitch. (Maybe add a link here to the timeline). The Agenda Committee will select sessions based on merit for the connection tracks. Partners accepted for the connection tracks are not eligible for the free primary presenter registration. However, free registrations are included in each partnership based on partnership purchased.
  • In addition to user connection tracks, partners may purchase a speaking slot in the Solutions Sessions Connection. These are not based on merit, but are purchased sessions. However, we again encourage partner to focus on content and not present as a sales pitch.

We welcome all partners to submit presentations within any connection, however, we request you try and collaborate with a customer and you MUST purchase a 2018 Partner Package prior to accepting the speaking engagement if you are selected otherwise you will be unable to register and the session will be cancelled. Partners are not eligible for the Primary Presenter free registration.

  1. Those accepted will need to submit an electronic copy of their presentation, before May 7, 2018. (Accepted sessions will be included in the conference proceedings that will be available to all conference attendees and potentially prospective attendees.) If the primary presenter is not registered by the end of Early Bird Registration their presentation will be removed from the agenda.
