The work you could be doing in the office, the money it will take to send you and the need to educate other colleagues are all barriers to attending an event like PlanetPTC Live. I can sympathize; I’ve been through discussions about this same topic with my own supervisor.
But when it comes down to it, the value of having hundreds of people who know your solutions best in one place, in focused discussions about your challenges and able to provide immediate feedback, is beyond measure.
In-person networking with the PTC community, and the learning and problem-solving experiences it provides, is just as critical to improving your skills – and your finished product – as the presentations you’ll attend. That’s why PlanetPTC Live Orlando brings you even more time and tools for interacting with attendees than ever before.
There are more occasions to engage with peers, PTC product line managers and complimentary solutions providers in the Solutions Expo, including two evening receptions, Networking Breakfasts and lunches with ample time for product demos. These are combined with Special Interest Meetings (SIMs) you can organize around a topic of your choosing in advance of the event and impromptu meetings in the all-new Networking Lounge you can organize on the spot – to start and continue a discussion or explore solutions to a specific challenge.
Plus, there are social events where you can just relax and build rapport with people you can turn to in the future when you have new problems to address.
Learn about every chance you’ll have to network in Orlando by visiting the PlanetPTC Live Orlando website, and feel free to post your questions here.
I’m looking forward to networking with you in Orlando!
