Siemens PLM NX CAE Symposium

By JerrySarfati

This week, Siemens PLM is hosting our NX CAE Symposium.  Unfortunately, I am unable to attend, but my colleague Mark Subramaniam will attend and provide reports from the event.


Siemens PLM Software will proudly to host its first ever NX CAE Symposium, from 7-8 November in Huntersville, North Carolina.  Located 12 miles north of Charlotte, Huntersville is home to acclaimed NASCAR racing outfit, Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR).  This year’s symposium will be held at JGR’s 250,000 square foot facility.  The facility, which supports numerous NASCAR teams, employs a staff of 450.  Owner and proprietor, Joe Gibbs needs little introduction, having lead the Washington Redskins to four NFC Championship and three Superbowl titles, as head coach. JGR has enjoyed three NASCAR Cup Series Championship victories under the pro football hall-of-famer’s leadership.  The team receives major corporate sponsorship from the likes of Home Depot, FedEx, Mars Candy, Coca Cola, and Toyota.

 The debut event will feature diverse presentations from customers including Joe Gibbs Racing, ATK Launch Systems, MDA, Proctor & Gamble, Southwest Solar Technologies, Hendrick Motorsports, Jet Propulsion Laboratories, ATA, Siemens Energy, Caterpillar, and Lockheed Martin.  In-house presentations from Siemens PLM Software, and a certain-to-be-lively panel discussion with PLM Industry expert, Dennis Nagy round out the two day agenda.

Attendees checking in last night had the opportunity to mingle, and socialize at the welcome reception, held at the host hotel.

Stay tuned for exciting updates and developments as the conference kicks off tomorrow.
