I found out today that the 3D EXPERIENCE WORLD 2020 registration is now open.- 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 - Dassault Systèmes
A co-worker asked if I had seen the email (I hadn't) so he sent it to me.
Early registration until end of this month
- 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 - Dassault Systèmes
Would have posted a little bit earlier today but I was busy registering. So far no word on when we will be able to see the sessions (or what they will be) but since those submissions just started a few weeks ago I would expect it to be next month (somehow think I saw something about Nov. but could be wrong).
Did you see anything about the hotels and the negotiated room rates? Before I can register my boss would like a budget.
Tt is not yet accessible and I have not seen anything on the hotels.
In the past, the procedure would be that you would go to the site listed on the registration confirmation and you would get to a link. (that is the way I have done it in the past but there may be other ways as well).
To get a rough idea, you can look up hotels in the Nashville area and go to their web pages and act as if you were booking a room (and just not book it) - That will give you "Standard" rates.
My guess - and this is only a guess based on last year and the hotel I stayed at - my rate through the Housing portion of the registration was approximately half the standard room rate.
That may have been with that hotel only or with more - and that was Dallas - may be different in different cities, how close to the event time, how full the hotels will be ............
I suggest you wait a few days and see if it comes online and in the meantime let your boss know that it will very likely be a good discount. There should be no rush but keep an eye on the registration sites.
I would also assume you will need your registration completed before they will lock down a room and rate, but you can probably get information before hand - after the Housing group is online.
Those are good suggestions.
I hope to see you there.
The Housing Registration website is expected to go live on Oct 21st.
I will add more details as they come.
Is it typical to close early registration before session info is available? I cannot justify to management w/o this info.
yes, that is, unfortunately, normal.
they only recently opened the submission portal to submit presentations...
It has been that way since I started going in 2016. Don't know about it prior to that but I assume it was.
You should feel comfortable and confident that there will be more sessions that will benefit you than you will be able to attend.
You should be able to justify attending by saying that no matter what, you will get more value out of it than the companies sost. Not only will you get great training but you will meet others that you can ask how to do things that you are having difficulty with, Learn new things you never knew you could do, Learn better, faster, more robust ways to do what you are doing now.
Worst case you can cancel before the show with only a small penalty. Look at some of the posts from previous years for information on justification letters or techniques.
I just posted a new thread last night
that will have links to old posts that are still relevant, that show justification letters or information. I suggest looking at those and others that are similar for pointers of how to present to your company and have them see how it is very much worth the cost.
Another Point, If they want to see more justification prior to making the decision, the "Early Registration" is only $100 savings over standart registration, so if they want to wait it's not that much cost.
It looks like you have only been on the forum for a few months - are you also new to SolidWorks? (if you don't want to say, that's ok). If you are new to SolidWorks, this training is a fantastic value ot the company and you. You will learn the Best, Most efficient, "Proper" ways to do everything SolidWorks. It's Invaluable training.
Not to mention all the people you can meet that will be able to guide you now and in the future. There are expected to be around 7,000 + SolidWorks users there of all levels and expertise. The learning doesn't stop when the classes are over, it spills into the between session times, partner pavilion (lots of things to see and learn there as well), you can take certification tests (must sign up during registration) for no cost. It is a non stop learning experience.
This will be my 4th SolidWorks convention - my company is not paying for me this year - but it is so worth it to me personally to improve myself and my abilities - I am paying my own way.
Another point to your company - it's training to enhance your abilities over your entire career.
Thank you, Rick!
Yes I am new to SolidWorks. I am new to CAD in general, tbh. I was recently hired by my company to be their PDM administrator. (My background is IT Configuration Management.) I have been learning as I go since I replaced the only person who had practical PDM experience. Our IT admin support, while not new to SolidWorks or PDM, has little understanding of how it's used and the various processes PDM supports. It's been interesting combing the SOLIDWORKS forum and blog and the various VAR blogs as we prepare a major migration to a new vault.
I appreciate all your tips. Our company sent me to PDM admin training, my first week on the job. I had no hooks to hang that new information from, so I'd love an opportunity attend training session and to glean from those with experience now that I have hooks galore, lol.
Since you are also doing PDM - The training you can get at 3DEXPERIENCE WORLD includes SOLIDWORKS PDM classes. You will be able to go to those classes and not only hear from the teacher but also other people there. You will probably find classes for Beginner to Experts in SW PDM.
Bring and exchange business cards - lots of them. Great way to meet people with all levels of expertise and get to know them and later (after the show) you will be able to contact them for help) Generally, SWX people are very helpfull in teaching and exchanging knowledge and abilities.
I don't do PDM here but have done document control practices in the past and lots of people have lots of different ways of doing it - you will learn the best ways to do what you need at the level you need.and different options.
In your case, you have PDM and SolidWorks Modeling needs - You will DEFINITELY find great training at the show and you will be able to discuss with others.
Before, Between and After classes, people socialize and trade stories, techniques and other information. We are not a bunch of stuffy executives in suits - we are a bunch of creative, friendly people who share information on our common abilities.

See 3DEXPERIENCE WORLD 2020 FYI:
EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS 10/31/19
why is rick the only one posting here. better get the check book out and get your ticket soon.
Only a couple days left for early registration (Oct. 31st.)
Price will increase by $200.
If your holding off registering because you haven't determined your flights / travel or hotels - don't wait and loose the discount.
You don't need to book your hotel or flights to register - you can do that later - so don't let those details stop you from registering and getting the discount. After registering you can go back into the registration and setup the housing - you will get a better price then doing it yourself if you want one of the listed hotels. Flights are also separate
The Class Agenda is expected to be out on Nov. 11. If you want any hands on training classes they fill up fast. You will need to be registered to sign up for classes. Keep an eye out for the schedule to open and be ready to move quickly to get into hands on Classes.
Just got an email from the 3DX organizers confirming that this year attendees will have access to the largest number of core SOLIDWORKS sessions ever!!!
There will be a lot of sessions focused on 3DEXPERIENCE and other DASSAULT products, but the lion share will be SW.
That is great news for us, hardcore SW users.
FINAL DAY - FOR EARLY REGISTRATION - TODAY OCT 31st,
Price increases by $200 on Nov. 1st,
all ready for 3d XP world. Just need to book a room or two....any one know where I can pick up some guest passes?
Sometimes VAR's will have guest passes (Partner Pavilion and maybe general sessions)
you can add guest passes through the registration portal - i believe they are charging for guest passes this year...
think that I am going to hit the VAR up for a pass or two.
How about the party on Tuesday, how do you bring a date to that?
Retrieving data ...
