Rapidly advancing technologies, growing consumer demands and a challenging economy calls for product development companies, of all sizes, to develop increasingly complex products in shorter time to market and within budget constraints.

Attendees can engage in dedicated hands-on workshops on Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0 and attend various PTC product demonstrations.
Commencing at 0900am, with an introduction to PTC´s Technology and Vision roadmap, followed by over 12 presentations, 3 business tracks, and a networking lunch to discuss with peers how PTC solutions have helped them optimize processes and bring real business benefit, participants have a packed day’s agenda.
