Realize LIVE brought interaction, innovation, and inspirational speakers

By Michelle Nixon

As more than 2,000 members of the Siemens Software user community gathered for Realize LIVE in Las Vegas and Berlin this past month, long-awaited reunions and first-ever meetings filled the hallways — while inside, everyone was buzzing about digital transformation.

In one of the most quoted moments, Zoe Chilton, Head of Strategic Partnerships for Oracle Red Bull Racing, talked about how the team optimizes high-performance design. She revealed “the secret to enabling rapid transformation: Give everything to everybody at the right time.”

Event highlights went well beyond the mainstage

  • Over the course of 20 hours in the Solution Center, attendees connected over shared challenges and collaborated on solutions.
  • In 230+ breakouts, roundtables and hands-on training sessions, engineers and executives dove deeper on topics most relevant to their roles and industries.
  • On the Customer Innovation Stage, real Siemens users showed the power of their newest technologies and revealed how they enable innovation.
  • Exclusive to Realize LIVE Americas, in the Innovation Hub, more than 100 attendees shared their feedback on the future of Siemens products and experiences, relishing the opportunity to “help fellow engineers” and “improve services and solutions my company could one day implement.”

And many Siemens sponsors, including AWS, Deloitte, Accenture, Engineering USA, HCL Technologies and many more great partners exchanged insights, strengthened partnerships, and showcased their latest solutions.  (You can learn more about these valuable partners on our website, partners at Americas and partners at Europe.)

Let’s not forget our evening receptions that brought together the Realize LIVE community. We had our partner reception the first night followed by our closing reception the night after. At Realize LIVE Americas, we had dancing, food, a rock band, and so many fun activities to get everyone involved in the Realize LIVE spirit. And, at Realize LIVE Europe we had a soccer-themed event where people could compete across a soccer table or get their photo taken with the referee on stilts and glow-up footballs. A place for reuniting connections and making new ones!
