As many of you have heard by now, PLM Connection will be a bit different this year. Far from just a rebranding, however, the Realize LIVE event offers more value for users. Join us for the Solid Edge Connection featuring four full days of more than 30 sessions that span best practices and helpful tips to the future of Solid Edge and what’s to come. Be the first to learn about Solid Edge 2020 during the event, which takes place June 10-13 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan, home to the International Auto Show. Realize LIVE Detroit is our flagship user event and will be followed by dozens of one-day Solid Edge University events globally. Stay tuned for more details.

The event kicks off Monday, June 10 with an exciting announcement from VP of Development for Mainstream Engineering, Dan Staples. He’ll be sharing Solid Edge 2020 and its many benefits with you for the first time! You won’t want to miss this chance to be among the first to see and experience the latest technology he will unveil.
One of the best benefits of these types of events is the opportunity they offer for you to connect with other expert users, including many of the members of the Solid Edge team, and to learn. An exhibition space with Siemens and our partners gives you a chance to talk one-on-one and learn more about the solutions offered. Throughout the event, you’ll hear from a number of users in a variety of industries on how they use Solid Edge to solve their difficult design challenges and achieve maximum efficiency from the software. Melissa Schultz @Melissa--PEC will host a session on “Learn Synchronous and Optimize the Use of Existing Features.” As she is an expert synchronous user, you could not be in better hands to learn more on that topic. Scott Wertel @swertel will present “Prioritizing Your Product Requirements with Solid Edge,” a very important topic for any designer to know. Scott is well-experienced in design and has great insights to offer.
The best way of learning, of course, is through hands-on experience. You’ll have the opportunity to attend eight hands-on sessions during the course of the four-day event. Tushar Suradkar @Tushar will host a hands-on session on reverse engineering, a topic of growing important in today’s design world. He will also share a joint session with our own Mark Thompson @Mdthompson on Mechanical Design Tips & Tricks. He is renowned in the user community for his knowledge of Solid Edge techniques, so those sessions are sure to be helpful. Professional development and other workshops will be offered at the close of each day to help you build your skillset further. Among the topics that will be covered are manufacturing, large assembly modeling, wiring and harness design and more.
As a native Detroiter, I feel I must also speak to all of the fun activities outside the actual event that you will have the opportunity to enjoy. Detroit tends to get a bad rap as a city, but it has so much to offer. From the legendary architecture of the Guardian Building (a National Historic Landmark in the US) to the delicious cuisine and brews at any number of restaurants you’ll find throughout, to the birthplace of the Ford Model T at the Piquette Plant and so much more, there is something for everyone. Your days will be long and filled with learning and networking, but I highly encourage you to explore the area in your free time! Take one of your newly made (or longtime) Solid Edge friends along with you 😊 and if you need a recommendation of where to go, I’m sure myself, John Gaioni @JPGAIONI, or any other locals would be happy to help, so don’t be shy.
These are in very limited supply and will be honored on a first come, first served basis. They are flat discounts, so you get the biggest bang for your buck with savings if you register during the early-bird pricing. The discounts will remain good until they run out, however. Act fast and register today! We hope to see you there.
