As most of you are probably now aware, our annual event will look a little different next year. Due to the pandemic, we will be going virtual for 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021. Yes, we are disappointed that we won’t be able to spend face-to-face time with our users and partners. We always return from this event energized by the passion of our many users, however, caution is key so we believe this to be the safest way to hold the event.
That said, I wanted to assure you all of a few things. Number one, we will be back! Better and bigger than ever in 2022 so rest assured, 3DEXPERIENCE World 2022 will once again return as an in-person event. Secondly, while we would rather be there in person—as I’m sure many of you would too—the upside of a virtual event is that we can include so many more people than in years past. This will provide an opportunity to extend our SOLIDWORKS user connection globally – with no physical limits! Users from across the globe can join us through the live stream, many perhaps for the first time.
So we have discussed what will be different, but I also want to assure you that the DNA of the event will remain very much the same and attendee favorites, such as Model Mania, 3DEXPERIENCE Playground, the EDU Zone, 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, as well as our amazing tech sessions, will return.
We also welcome our DELMIAworks customers to their second 3DEXPERIENCE World event with training sessions, networking opportunities, and information specifically tailored to their manufacturing operations and goals.
We will also have an exciting lineup of speakers and while we have not finalized this list, we can tease a few.
Jason Pohl, the recognized industrial designer who made a name for himself on the long-running TV series American Chopper, aims to inspire the next generation of designers. Pohl will share his extensive design and manufacturing expertise in creating custom parts from the initial concept sketch to 3D sculpting, programming, and machining of the final product. Our Waltham campus is lucky enough to see his work, this motorcycle designed in SOLIDWORKS, daily in our cafeteria. Read more about Orange County Choppers’ use of SOLIDWORKS here.

The Freedom to Create
This year’s event’s theme is The Freedom to Create, and at SOLIDWORKS this remains our ultimate goal: to help our users—whether they are professional engineers and designers, hobbyists or makers, students or entrepreneurs—by providing the tools that enable them to take their ideas and quickly bring them to life. With our expanded portfolio, 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, we are delivering solutions that fit everyone’s needs, whether that be on-premise, connected to cloud services or fully in the cloud as browser-based solutions that run on any device. We know that only you know what’s best for your business so the choice is always yours.
