Leading global provider of technology and services Altair Engineering has announced that its biennial UK technology event - will be taking place on 10th September at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Now in its eighth year, the conference started out as a HyperWorks user event and has transformed into one of the major PLM technology events in the UK, with more than 350 delegates expected to attend.
The conference attracts speakers from world-leading companies who will discuss current business challenges facing UK industry today, sharing their vision for the future of engineering and demonstrating the development of innovation in their industries. In addition the conference provides an excellent platform to network and exchange experiences with others from the UK engineering community.
This year's UK Technology Conference will again feature high profile technical and keynote speakers and will be packed with top-notch presentations. Speakers will reveal how they have used Altair's virtual simulation suite, HyperWorks, to develop truly innovative products. The sessions will cover solver technologies for accurate structural analysis, optimisation for optimum product performance, multi-body dynamics applications, manufacturing simulation, revolutionary methods for designing with composite materials and much more.
David Fothergill of SVT & Bentley Motors Ltd said of the event in 2011: “We were impressed not only by the number of attendees, but also by the cross-section of industries and interests."
The previous Technology Conference in 2011 attracted over 300 delegates from various industry sectors. This year's technical speakers come from, EADS, Jaguar Land Rover, Supacat, Gestamp and many other leading companies.
Some delegates choose to return year after year because “it gets better every year," as Andy Cullen of IPECO stated.
The biennial conference will bring together companies that have benefited significantly by integrating HyperWorks into their design processes. They will demonstrate how they are using virtual design and simulation technologies to develop a competitive edge, successfully meeting engineering and business challenges in the current market environment.
But there is more to the day than just a conference: "It's the event of the year in the UK for networking," said Ray Long of Tata Steel Automotive. “It is an interesting day with a good range of speakers over diverse disciplines," added Simon Lytton of Aston Martin.
"Our first Technology Conference was held over ten years ago and the event has gone on to earn a reputation for presenting highly innovative and successful simulation applications that demonstrate real business benefits," explains Håkan Ekman, Managing Director, Altair Engineering Ltd. "The conference creates an exciting forum for discussion among leading thinkers and practitioners within the UK and Ireland’s engineering community. With over 300 attendees at our last conference in 2011, we are confident that this year will be even more successful. We will provide delegates with great value during the day and will make sure they leave with lots of interesting, valuable, and new knowledge about simulation technologies."
The free-to-attend event, open to all industries, is renowned as a 'must attend' conference within the UK engineering community thanks to its reputation for extremely high quality speakers and highly valuable technical content.
