Conference History

    PTC/USER spent 22 years building the World Event from a gathering of 100 users in 1989 to over 2000 attendees in recent years. Starting in 2011, PTC/USER is leveraging 22 years of experience with our World Event and are now working alongside PTC to present PTC Live Global.

    Each year, PTC Live Global will hold its premier event in North America and PTC/USER is heavily involved in the formation of the agenda and reviewing the presentations from the customer base and from PTC. We also help select keynote speakers and advise on a wide variety of elements to ensure a value-add user based experience.

    A typical event includes:

    • Best Practice Seminars - Sessions sponsored by PTC Global Services designed to provide practical, technical information you can use.
    • Technical Training - Mand hands-on sessions led by PTC University to continue your education or introduce you to a new aspect of PTC products.
    • Product Update Briefings - Learn about the latest enhancements in your favorite software modules and leading industry practices.
    • User & Partner Presentaitons - Experts from the professional community will offer their tips, techniques and unique insights to help you improve your business results.
    • Exhibit Hall - Dozens of exhibits from PTC and our Industry Practice showcase the latest innovations in software, hardware and services to solve your most difficult challenges.

    Its a special opportunity to network with your colleagues in the industry as well as in the top engineers and executives from PTC.
