Hexagon 2012: Thinking Forward Behind the Scenes


The countdown has begun. We now have just over two weeks before Hexagon 2012 begins. With almost 3,000 attendees from more than 70 countries preparing to Think Forward, this will undoubtedly be Hexagon’s largest event in our twenty-year history.

Hexagon 2012 is sure to excite, energize and exhilarate like never before!  The numbers speak for themselves. With four tracks and 18 targeted sub-tracks, Hexagon 2012 boasts over 400 sessions totaling a staggering 480-plus hours of targeted presentations. Included in this are more than 115 hours of hands-on training opportunities – all complimentary, to ensure we’re bringing our attendees even more value. That’s almost one-fourth of the total content, all gratis. On top of all this are the endless demos and presentations that attendees can catch at the TechPark thanks to more than 50 technology sponsors. And there’s lots happening behind the scenes, too. In fact, as of 9:02 a.m. this morning, there were more than 300 hours of meeting bookings…and counting.

Being involved in the planning team, every day I hear new ideas about how to make this year’s conference even better than the last. The enthusiasm that all of our employees feel for this event is infectious, from Intergraph and Leica Geosystems to Metrology and Hexagon Corporate. Suffice it to say, our Hexagon family employees have pulled out all the stops. I feel we are all shaping change in our own ways to make sure the Hexagon 2012 attendee can extract the most value out of these four days to facilitate change in their own organizations.

As you think forward to Hexagon 2012, I would love to hear your thoughts on what we can do to improve the Hexagon conference experience, so find me on Twitter.

See you in Vegas,
