Symetri, Autodesk’s leading partner in the UK oil, gas, nuclear, renewables, transportation and manufacturing sectors, has announced three conferences. Among the highlights will be a first look at the newly-released Autodesk Inventor and Vault 2014 alongside the latest versions of Autodesk Factory Design Suites and Autodesk Simulation.

The conferences will take place on:

24th April – Magna Science Adventure Museum, Rotherham

1st May – Jury’s Inn, Newcastle Gateshead

8th May – DoubleTree Hotel, Aberdeen

The events will also include expert speakers and will be a forum for considering industry challenges, networking and learning how others within the industry are maximising the benefits of the latest digital design technology. In particular, they will address how manufacturers can cut costs and time to market by moving beyond 3D design to digital prototyping, designing, visualising, simulating and analysing their products on screen before they are built.

Symetri will also be discussing Autodesk’s alternative to traditional product lifecycle management (PLM).

“Our conferences always enable us to catch up with customers and to meet new faces – and to learn from each other. We get the chance to hear about the issues currently impacting our customers’ businesses and in turn we can use expertise gained from working with others in similar situations to offer solutions,” says Colin Watson, corporate director, Symetri.

The events are free of charge and can be booked online.
