PLMIF Virtual Experience Wrap Up

PLMIF Virtual Experience Wrap Up

Year on year, the PLM Innovation Forum brings together the world’s foremost authorities on PLM innovation to join us, at TECHNIA, on our mission to make product creation sustainable.

This year we met online for the PLMIF Virtual Experience 2020, delivering 35 industry and partner booths, 22 live streaming sessions, 90+ on demand sessions and much more to over 2000 registrants during the opening live dates of April 28th and 29th. While the entire portfolio of on demand content remains accessible to registrants for the duration of the month of May.

If you’re looking for some inspiration on where to start, the Virtual Dutchman, Jos Voskuil recently put together a list of recommendations.

But it’s not over yet! We’re reopening the virtual event doors and inviting attendees to return for the Virtual Wrap Up on May 28th. This additional live day is open to all with more live streaming presentations on the PLM world’s most exciting developments, an extended Q&A session with an expert panel of industry leaders, all the industry and partner booth content, and many more opportunities for online networking.
