After attending many events I think I can safely say that 3DEXPERIENCE World (or World) is about one thing: connections. It’s about connecting people to people, people to answers, and people to possibilities. And, to me the hub of these connections is the Dassault Systemes booth located at the center of the Playground. The DS Booth is an excellent, yet underused, resource for all attendees whether you are a seasoned veteran or a first-timer, so let me tell you how to make the DS Booth amplify you whole 3DEXPERIENCE World experience.
The DS Booth is many things to many people, while many attendees view the DS Booth as a glorified demo and learning location, it is so much more. Yes, the DS Booth is the place to see the complete portfolio of products on offer, and where you can ask focused questions to see how your company might benefit from any new technology. Or maybe you have a technical challenge and want to pick the brains of the experts to see the best way to resolve it. But there is so much more to the DS booth than just technology.
For many attendees 3DEXPERIENCE World is the most intense learning and networking four days of the year, but its easy to get ‘lost’ in the moment and miss out on what you want to see. And this is where the DS Booth can help everybody. Even after going to the event for 15+ years I use the DS Booth as the location for suggestions, directions and answers during my time at World, and I suggest you should do the same. With s so much going on at World it’s hard to keep on top of your agenda, to know what’s going on where and when, and this is where the friendly staff at the booth can help.
After attending a few classes and or the morning General Sessions, you are bound to have questions you didn’t have a time or opportunity to ask. So take a walk to the DS Booth and ask the team there. If they don’t know the answers, you can bet they know who does, and it’s easy to set up an appointment to talk to them one on one.
The hands-on sessions are incredibly popular, and although we do our best to satisfy everyone, maybe you missed out on the session you wanted. Now you can’t run through a hands-on session at the demo booth, but you can get your hands on the software and have someone talk you through the basics of how it works.
With thousands of attendees as well as employees, it can sometimes be hard to meet up. But everyone knows where the DS Booth is, so when in doubt set your rendezvous to be the DS Booth before, either using the tables on the booth for your discussions or the locations nearby. Which is why I use the DS Booth as the fulcrum of my whole time at World. If I’m not presenting or attending sessions, you find me here talking and connecting with customers and partners.
As I said 3DEXPERIENCE World is about making connections, and the DS Booth can help you both make those connections and amplify them. And this year it’s about connecting your imagination with the possibilities or reality. I hope to see you all at the DS Booth getting the most out of your time at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2022.
