You: I’d really like to attend HxGN LIVE 2019.
Your boss: I’ve heard of that. Sounds like a great chance to learn and network. Where is it?
You: Las Vegas.
Your boss: …
You’re probably expecting a “no.” Why? Because your boss is assuming a conference in Las Vegas is just an excuse to have a great time on the company’s dime. So, how do you convince them otherwise?
Tell them about all the invaluable opportunities you’ll have at HxGN LIVE, our premier global digital solutions conference. From trying out the latest innovative technologies to networking with other industry leaders or attending trainings for the products you rely on, the events you participate in will be time – and money – well spent.
This year’s conference will be 11 – 14 June at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Here are five reasons you can use to convince your boss to let you join us this year.
1. What’s New
If you are already using software from Hexagon’s Geospatial division, then you will want to attend our What’s New sessions. In them, you will hear about the new features in our latest releases, plus get a sneak peek into what you can expect to see in software releases coming later this year. We consistently strive to include new technologies and capabilities that will make your job easier and more efficient, and we can’t wait to show you what’s available.
With What’s New sessions for each product portfolio, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss the solutions you use, plus ones you have yet to discover. Your boss will definitely appreciate being one of the first to know about the latest trends for mission-critical solutions.
2. The Zone
The Zone is a massive arena you can visit to interact with the very latest in geospatial technology. This is the place to see dynamic location intelligence in action. From crowdsourcing solutions to machine learning and real-time analysis and visualization software, we have technology to help you – and your boss – make more-informed, smarter decisions.
You can also go one step further and try your hand at building The M.App of the Future. In The Zone Smart City sector, visit the Build an App station and learn how easy it is to create your own custom application that solves your organization’s – and your boss’ – specific challenges.
Your conference pass entitles you to our free hands-on training courses. In these, you can learn new
tips, tricks, and workflows in products you are already using – making you more
efficient and thus more valuable to your company. Your boss would want that,
These sessions, taught by our subject matter experts, also give you a chance to experience new technologies that are not currently in your company’s arsenal. You might discover products that could completely change the way you work today!
4. Success Stories
Sit in on breakout sessions where our customers from across the globe – people just like you – share stories of how they use Hexagon products in innovative ways to improve their organization’s bottom line. Those same technologies can be employed in almost any enterprise, including yours, to solve industry-specific problems. Wouldn’t your boss be impressed if you came back to work with a great new idea that would help you work smarter?
We are continuing to add to our agenda, so please check the list of breakout sessions often.
5. Experience the Power of Connectivity
Last, but certainly not least, is the Geospatial Track keynote. In this presentation, Geospatial division President Mladen Stojic will continue where he left off in last year’s keynote: Bridging the Divide – Smart Digital Reality. This year, he will discuss how bridging and visualizing the connections between people, objects, and events provides you with a common operating picture, connecting the geospatial and operational worlds, and empowering you to impact what happens next.
And yes, in addition to these five reasons to attend, there are social events! But be sure to tell your boss that these events are designed to make it easier for you to connect with peers from across the globe. The fun, relaxed, casual atmosphere encourages camaraderie and the sharing of ideas in a unique way.
