CONFERENCE INVITE: Autodesk University 2020, Nov 18-20, reimagine what's possible


Starting on the 17th for those in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 18th for us in the Southern Hemisphere, the online Autodesk University 2020 event is billed as "The design and make conference for innovators everywhere who reimagine what’s possible."

Autodesk. From almost my earliest years, I remember Autodesk as the company that gave architects the power to do plans digitally using AutoCad, but over the last 30 years and more, Autodesk offers a huge range of products

These include Autocad, Revit, Fusion 360, Maya, 3DS Max, Civil 3D, Inventor, Recap Pro, Flame, Navisworks, Arnold, NetFabb, BIM 360, MudBox, Infraworks, Sketchbook and more, including bundles that deliver more value for various products bundled together.

With such a great range of products under its belt, it's no surprise that Autodesk has an annual conference that encompasses everything, and of course in the year 2020 when everything has gone online due to the pandemic, the Autodesk University 2020 event is also online, and it's massive.

The tagline of the event is "Find your new possible", with Autodesk University 2020 (or AU 2020) billed as "a global digital event that brings together innovators from around the world—designers, engineers, builders, creators—to explore new ways of imagining, designing, and making.

"At AU 2020, you’ll learn alongside your peers in architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and media and entertainment as you discover emerging technologies and trends to help you achieve your new possible".

As with many online events these days, there is no cost to attend AU 2020, but registration is required to participate, with the direct link to the free registration page here.

Naturally, the event is HUGE. Autodesk tells us that you can "gain new skills and knowledge with sessions led by industry and product experts. Choose from 750+ on-demand sessions, with the schedule here, which also includes 350+ live class Q&As, live panels, roundtables, and more".

That schedule link above is to the detailed, in depth schedule, but you can also get a look at the "at a glance" agenda here, which is definitely worth doing.

As you'd expect, Autodesk wants you to know that you can "get answers to your questions from Autodesk product experts at the Answer Bar", and the company invites you to "share your feedback and perspectives on the products you use every day at the Idea Exchange".

Of course, no conference would be complete without being able to "discover your new possible", where Autodesk promises you'll "learn about emerging technologies, trends, and ideas shaping your industry" and that you can "tune in for inspiring keynotes, watch dynamic Theater talks, and interact with 100+ exhibitors at the Expo".

On Friday 20 November, I will be video interviewing Andy Cunningham, the Managing Director of Autodesk Australia and New Zealand.

Andy will update us on the conference as its last day will still be in progress, and he'll share information on the following topics, and more:

  • How design can be used to address real-world issues ranging from climate change to energy conservation, the future of workplace, and more
  • Highlighting real-world examples from Autodesk University 2020, the role that data and automation play in empowering innovators to achieve sustainable design
  • How Autodesk is staying ahead of the curve

Naturally, the conference itself will share information on all of that, but Andy will no doubt be able to give us a great summary of the most important developments when we speak.

So, it's not too late to register for the conference and reimagine what's possible!
