Greetings to our PLM World community members and welcome to the relaunch of our community newsletter.
It has been a busy and successful year for PLM World with growing attendance at our National event in Orlando, the RUG season in full swing as I write this and many strategic initiatives being put into place by your board of directors.
The PLM World Board has been focused on developing plans for strategic growth of our community. We've recognized that the product portfolio of Siemens PLM is growing rapidly which presents both a challenge and an opportunity to adjust our events and offerings to provide valued experiences for our existing member base of CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM users and potential new members from Simulation, Manufacturing Operations Management and Digital Factory customers.
*Connections also invited to Monday Afternoon Session and Reception at Lucas Oil Stadium
To increase and strengthen our focus on improved community engagement methods, we've added new team members to our PLM World staff. Our team now has specific expertise to introduce industry leading concepts in event content design, community engagement, marketing and digital systems. The 2017 event in Indianapolis will really begin to showcase our commitment to improved attendee experience.
Siemens PLM have reiterated their commitment to PLM World as their partner for user connection events and are heavily invested in helping us improve the design, breadth and content of our events.
We have been delighted with the ever growing activity in our digital platforms. The Siemens PLM Community discussion forums are seeing great dialogue between users, Siemens PLM developers and product managers along with the partner community. Our social media channels on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are enabling us to deliver interesting content at a rapid pace. Our mobile app is hugely popular at our events but needs some nurturing to keep up the dialogue throughout the year.
Best wishes to all of our members and your families for the upcoming holiday season. Hope to see you active in our digital platforms soon and we would love you to join us in Indianapolis on May 8-11 for Siemens PLM Connection Americas 2017.
