This year we’re doing our annual conferences on a GRAND scale. Last year you might have been familiar with Z-DAC in North America, Innovation Fair in Japan, or Engineering Days in Europe. This year, we’ve brought them all together and centered on a consistent theme for all of our global conferences – Innovation.
In 2012, no matter where you’re based, your local annual conference will be the much the same as what your counterparts experience on the other side of the world. The content differs slightly to cater for specific local interests, but the approach is the same.
The emphasis of the conference is networking, learning and sharing innovative ideas.
Isn’t it just great to catch up with old pals that you worked with at so-and-so ten years ago? And it’s always good to make new acquaintances; who knows, these first discussions might be the start of some ground-breaking company partnership. For some people, this is the top reason why they choose to come to one of our conferences – the networking opportunities are endless because we have attendees from such a wide array of industries and backgrounds.
Well this is pretty obvious, but what we mean by learning is helping educate you so you can work more efficiently with the tools you have, and understand the cost-effective and innovative ways of overcoming the challenges that are troubling you. At the same time, the conferences encourage knowledge sharing, through user presentations and informal discussions.
This is the fundamental stuff, this is what we live and breathe at Zuken – making innovation happen! You might see innovation in the way your peers use our solutions, in our newest products, or in new functionality of an existing solution; you might see it in the support we offer you directly, or through the benefits of our many partnerships. One thing is for sure, you won’t leave any of our conferences without seeing something you can take back to your job and get excited about.
ZIW moves to Spring!
Due to popular demand, we are moving our European and American conferences to springtime. That means we will not be running ZIW events in 2013. Instead we will plan for the best conferences ever in the spring of 2014. Watch this space for more details on your local events coming soon.
If you don’t want to wait until 2014 to join us at the next Zuken Innovation World, be sure to register now. For more details on your local Zuken Innovation World conference click here.
