The 2012 Autodesk University Conference and Exhibition held in the last week of November brought more than 8,000 attendees to Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay for training classes, keynotes, product demonstrations, exhibits and networking events with other professionals and industry experts. Guests also had the chance to check out the latest design technologies and development.
The conference offered more than 750 classes and a record-breaking number of exhibitors, which included the 3Dconnexion team.
Our AU Experience
This was our first time as a silver sponsor, so we enjoyed a larger booth, and a more prominent position than previous years. The booth was busy with visitors, both existing 3D mouse users and those who had not yet joined the 3D mouse revolution. And who wouldn’t be interested when there’s a prize wheel involved? Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and to the record number that decided to purchase a 3D mouse to take home with them there and then!
We were also helped by three guest presenters and 3Dconnexion mouse enthusiasts—Michael Anonuevo (@michaelanonuevo), Jonathan Landeros (@jonlanderos) and Andrew Warren (@andrewbwarren)—who helped showcase the benefits of some of our 3D mice by demonstrating how to use the products in different applications. Thanks, guys!
And, we were lucky enough to also have a strong presence at our partner booths as well, including: Gibbo & Associates, Ideate, Inc., Luxion, Microdesk, SolidCAM, Vero Software, Applied Engineering, Inc., Bluebeam Software, Boxx Technologies, Dell, HP, Lenovo and CAD Masters. Thanks to all of you for your partnerships and support!
