Dear PLM World Members and Siemens PLM Community,


Over the last 41 years, the PLM World organization has successfully developed the Siemens PLM user community and offered quality educational opportunities through annual and regional user group events. Your commitment to us, as members, has been at the forefront of this success. It has been PLM World’s mission to continually seek opportunities for growth and, sometimes, these opportunities have led to change.


PLM World and Siemens came to an agreement to transition the Siemens PLM Connection – Americas event to Siemens with an effective date of June 2019.


As many of you know, Siemens PLM Software has undergone a substantial business transformation with various acquisitions that have extended the company’s solution coverage beyond the traditional PLM domain. The end goal is to provide customers with a holistic platform for digital innovation across the lifecycle, as well as, the enterprise. Siemens’ ability to harness many resources led to this decision.


More details will be forthcoming over the next several months as we work through the transition but, you can expect more good news to come. In the meantime, it is important to note that the commitment to the user community remains unchanged.


  • PLM World 2018 events will continue as usual; including Siemens PLM Connection – Americas in Phoenix, June 4-7.
  • Events and educational opportunities will grow and expand in 2019 and beyond.
  • The user voice will continue to influence direction for Siemens software development and use.

Our organizations have an excellent working relationship, and both teams are confident that the transition will be successful. We will send updates regularly as the transition unfolds and keep the News section of the PLM World website updated.


The support from the PLM World community over the years has been tremendous. Thank you! Feel free to reach out to Wendy Holliday, PLM World Executive Director, at with any immediate questions or concerns.
