GoEngineer's Guide to 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024

Article by Nick Sweeney on Jan 10, 2024

In February 2024, 3DEXPERIENCE World is heading back to Texas! Here is everything GoEngineer will be up to at the conference, including our customer party, can't-miss technical presentations, what we're looking forward to, and more!

Why Attend?

Building on the legacy of SOLIDWORKS World, which launched in 1999, 3DEXPERIENCE World extends beyond CAD, bringing designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders together to explore desktop and cloud ecosystems. Guests have access to hundreds of presentations put on by customers and resellers from around the world - the perfect opportunity to learn more about areas of the software you’re curious about.

Attendees also have access to free 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and SOLIDWORKS certification exams on Sunday before the main conference kicks off. If you want to test your skills and add a certificate to your wall, don't miss this chance!

As for the main conference, each morning starts with a general session, full of inspirational customer stories, guest speakers, and a peek at what's in the works over at Dassault Systèmes. And don't forget about the always entertaining 3DEXPERIENCE Playground! Partners from all over the world show up to show off their latest technology. Last year, I got to try out an Artec Leo Scanner, and am looking forward to seeing the different partners this year and what they bring to the conference! 

If you haven’t already registered, there's still time to reserve your spot: https://www.3dexperienceworld.com/.

Make sure you register for 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024 in Dallas.

Can't make it? In past years, SOLIDWORKS has live-streamed it on their YouTube page. So, if you won't be in person, tune in at 8:30 AM CST on February 12th to see what is being streamed from the conference.

Visit The GoEngineer Partner Booths

Some of the top partners that GoEngineer works with are also attending 3DEXPERIENCE World. This isn't just a chance to see the latest technology - there will be experts from each of our partners in attendance. This is your chance to talk about your application of their solutions, what they have coming down the pipe, and start thinking of new ways you can change how you work.

Just a few of our partners you'll be able to find in the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground are Artec, Cadence, CAMWorks, Dell, DriveWorks, 3DCONNEXION, and Elysium. They may even give a demo!

The GoEngineer Customer Appreciation Party

We love a good party (who doesn’t?) and 3DEXPERIENCE World is our chance to get together and show our appreciation to our customers from all across the country.

This year, on February 12th, we're headed to Gilly's Dallas from 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM CST

So, if you’re a GoEngineer Customer, be sure to register, stop by to chat, and join us for live music, appetizers, drinks, and an evening of fun!

Register for GoEngineer's Customer Party

We Want to Hear From You!

The Customer Party isn't the only chance to interact with the GoEngineer team. We'll be covering the event on our social media channels all week and reporting back. We'll be posting updates throughout the conference on our social accounts. Follow us to stay informed:

GoEngineer Technical Sessions

Our technical team always creates some of the most insightful presentations, ranging from the theory of setting up a simulation study to a hands-on introduction to xShape.

Of course, there isn’t enough time at the conference to attend all the sessions. Personally, I could use some education about using the xApps, so Randy and Todd’s hands-on introduction to xShape sounds really interesting. But you really can’t go wrong with any of these presentations...and who knows, perhaps I'll see you in one! Start building your agenda here.
