Why you should speak at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024

The deadline to submit your ideas for a presentation at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024 in person in Dallas, TX, is fast approaching, but we still have room for your great ideas and want to include you in this year’s amazing event.  Deadline to submit your amazing proposals is September 15th!

If I remember correctly this event marks my 21st ‘World,’ and I have presented at all but two of them. At those events I could be found on stage during the general session and helping out in the demo booth and hands-on rooms. So why do I do it? And why do I think you should do it too? Well, here are a few reasons, in no particular order:

  1.        As engineer, we are problem solvers. And we love to share our knowledge with others so they can progress their designs. Our community truly exemplifies the phrase “standing on the shoulders of giants.” If you have been using your solution from SOLIDWORKS for a couple of years, I’m sure you have picked up some neat workflows or tips and trick that others can benefit from. Users love to hear from other users on how they get their jobs done.
  2.        It’s a great networking opportunity.  The conversations you have before and after your talk will open many doors to new opportunities. Many speakers over the years have ended up with business opportunities, job offers or new clients after presenting at World.
  3.        It is a great door opener.  If you do a great presentation at 3DEXPERIENCE World, you might find that you are asked to present at another conference, or a company meeting, or industry event!
  4.        It’s a fantastic achievement to add to your resume (especially if you win a Speaker award!)  Employers are always looking for individuals who put themselves out there and are willing to share their knowledge.  Let’s face it – that means you are a team player as well.

Have I convinced you to present? If so, go here or click on the banner below to submit your idea. We don’t need your final presentation right now, just your proposed title and a brief, but please include a compelling session description with a basic outline of the class.  Just enough information so that the Agenda Leaders can make good decisions during the selection process.  Then if your proposal is selected, you will still have a couple of months to pull the rest together!

So don’t delay and submit yours today! Good luck, and I hope to be reading your submission soon.
