How Long Would you Drive to Attend a SWUGN Summit Event

Poll created by 1-3PL95X on Jan 7, 2015

SWUGN Technical Summits are one-day training and networking events scheduled monthly in cities around the US and other parts of the world starting in March.  These events are hosted by the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network and feature technical sessions geared toward all levels of users.


A typical SWUGN Summit event, usually held on a Tuesday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, features a choice of 10 technical breakout sessions (dual track - 5 sessions available to you during the day), a continental breakfast and a nice lunch (depending on the venue, you might even get a sweet snack in the afternoon).  Attendance ranges from 80 to more than 180 depending on the locale.


Topics include core SOLIDWORKS functionality, specialty items such as Mold Tools, Weldments, and Sheet Metal tools, and complimentary products such as SOLIDWORKS Composer, EPDM, and even SWMC.


SWUGN Technical Summits are also a great way to meet new people, compare issues and techniques, and network with some of the top SOLIDWORKS users, resellers, and employees from around the world.


There is a $40 fee to attend the events, primarily to insure attendance.
