Four conferences in six weeks
Last year's light festival in Berlin during the Graebert conference
If two weeks ago was Prague, then next week is Berlin. We are looking forward to seeing what AutoCAD workalike powerhouse Graebert Gmbh is up to as they invite users and the media to Berlin, Germany for their annual conference. The significance: Graebert is second only to Autodesk in the number of DWG-based CAD users. That conference is happening Oct 7 and 8, and we plan to be there.
Then we're off to Munich to take in the annual Bricsys International Conference at the BMW World center, to see how the company is continuing to extend the DWG format in directions Autodesk never did. The significance: Bricsys has BIM and MCAD working on DWG. That conference is on Oct 13 and 14, and we plan to be there.
Finally, we slip into the Dassault Systemes Spatial conference to see what the kernel vendor has planned for its millions of customers. We have interviews lined up with executives from the company. That conference is Oct 14 and 15 in Munich, as we plan to be there.
