See You at SolidWorks World!!

Notice that there isn’t a question mark in the title.  That’s because it’s actually a statement I have heard dozens of times in the past two weeks.  From Racine to San Jose, from Oklahoma City to Tulsa, it’s become the standard farewell as I leave a user group meeting or a SWUGN Technical Summit event.

Very soon the buzz will start building on various discussion forums as well.  Message threads titled "Are You Attending SolidWorks World" will generate a lot of response – both positive and negative (I wish I could, but……). 

And, as happens every year, someone will suggest a meeting of <fill in the blank> forum members.  These meetings are usually very hard to set up.  Not only does everyone arrive on different days, but finding time to meet during the busy 3-1/2 days is daunting.  All too often it doesn’t happen.

I have a suggestion that might help.  The SolidWorks User Group Network hosts the annual SWUGN Summit at SolidWorks World each year.  The meeting draws user group leaders from around the world, members of the press, the SWUGN Committe (of course), and a few special guests.  The meeting is scheduled late in the day on conference Monday, and lasts for two hours.  We have plenty of space for any and all "forum members" to join us.  We might even be able to set up special tables for you and your fellow forum members to sit and meet each other in person.  Let me know and we’ll make the arrangements.

See You at SolidWorks World!
