HxGN LIVE has taken over one of the most lavish hotels in the middle of the desert and filled it with change makers from all over the world, the industry’s latest, most innovative solutions and a WHOLE lot of incredible energy.
And all of this happened in just day one.
HxGN LIVE 2019 is officially here! Attendees filled The Venetian yesterday for day one of conference and the eagerness and excitement was tangible as attendees began exploring and settling in. After checking in at registration, change makers made their way to The Zone to get familiar with this year’s completely revamped technology layout.
The unveiling of The Zone featured six ecosystems for attendees to check out: Smart Factories, Smart Autonomous Mobility, Smart Cities & Nations, Smart Buildings & Infrastructure, Smart Industrial Facilities and Smart Mines. Attendees were able to interact with technology at each of these areas and experienced some pretty cool features like a brewery and virtual reality stations, just to name a couple.
Attendees were seen at the content booth throughout day one sharing stories about innovating the industries they serve with Hexagon. If you’re interested in sharing your story, it’s not too late, just email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hexagon’s President and CEO Ola Rollén officially kicked off the conference with his inspiring opening keynote address about how Your Data Can Save the World and why it matters to your business. Attendees listened as Rollén shared how companies are leaving big efficiency gains on the table and walked through Hexagon’s far-reaching vision for putting data to work.
Right after Rollén’s keynote, attendees made their way to the night’s primetime evening event: Unlocked. Held in The Zone, attendees were able to unwind with food, beverages and good music while taking in all the sites and having the opportunity to experience all the technology on display and meet with Hexagon’s product experts and partners.
Hexagon’s esteemed customers were also awarded on day one for the impact they’re making around the world and were recognised by Ola Rollén during the annual Customer Recognition Program.
As we wind down and day one comes to a close, I don’t know how day two could possibly top it. But if I know one thing after over years of coming to this conference, each day somehow gets better.
So get ready! This week is going to be a blast and full of innovative technology, new relationships and great ideas around every corner.
