Pro/ENGINEER UsersConference 2002

- Last modified: Aug 19 2003 -

This is the 8th time we organised the Pro/ENGINEER Users Conference together with PTC Nederland.

A big fire in another building at the University (only a few hundred meters away the day before the conference) nearly torpeded the conference. But in the end it didn't cause any troubles at all. Except that we only did not have live Internet connections, since the fire destroyed the main computer facilities of the University shutting the network down..

We had special attention for the newest PreRelease of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.
Off course it also featured the PTC/AWARD Benelux, where PTC and IBM delivered nice prices.

This years winner of the Pro/AWARD Benelux 2002 was:
GRASSO Products B.V. i.c.w. DYMO Engineering
by: G.Bon, J. vd Oetelaar, H.Gruijtrooij en J.Schellekens
Project: Ontwikkeling Grasso8S Koelcompressor
Grasso8S
For the first time this year we had forumdiscussions. They were an experiment but were very well received. Not many participants, but due to their specialistic nature the discussions were in depth. Most participants said there wasn't enough time for a thourough discussion. It took some time for the discussions too really take off.

The location was by many experienced as being too far away (3 to 4 hour drives were no exeption). The number of visitors was also lower than expected. Voices in the organization were heard about organizing the 2003 conference somewhere in Brabant again. Any good tips for locations are welcome ....
