Tune in to Watch LIVE at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024

If you cannot make it to Dallas, this February for 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024, believe me: there’s still time.

Before I get into the planned agenda for the virtual showing of 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024, I want to say: I cannot wait to meet, learn from, and see many of you again – IN-PERSON – in just a few weeks!

For the past few years, the SOLIDWORKS LIVE team has aimed to bring some of the best aspects of being at the event directly to you, all across the globe. And thankfully, thousands of you have taken in the event this way, year after year.

This year, LIVE at 3DEXPERIENCE World has one primary goal: to leave you marking your calendars for February 2025! How do we aim to do that? By serving you nothing but the hits!

What wil be airing virtually as part of LIVE at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024?

LIVE at 3DEXPERIENCE World is scheduled to bring you only the very best of the event. This means: General Sessions, Domain Sessions, exclusive tours of on-site attractions (like the Playground), special guest interviews, and LIVE technical presentations, featuring Aryan Fallahi (from 146k subscriber YouTube channel, ‘SolidWorks With Aryan Fallahi’) and Kara Tucker (Gibson Brands, Inc). If you missed Kara’s blog on why she loves attending  3DEXPERIENCE World, you can read it here

This year, the focus is on bringing you the very best of the event. Once again: nothing but the hits. We’ll be streaming all three days of 3DEXPERIENCE World, but, instead of streaming for 8+ hours across three days with a variety of content each day of the conference, each slate of programming across our three days in Dallas is specifically labeled and themed.

Why? We watch YouTube, just like you do. We want to know exactly what we’re tuning in for, and we know you do, too.
