“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” – Industrialist Henry Ford
In just a few days our international user conference, HxGN LIVE 2015, gets underway at the MGM Grand. This is always an exciting time as we at Intergraph Process, Power & Marine (PP&M) look forward to gathering with members of the process, power and marine industries to discuss and demonstrate how our industry-leading, next-generation solutions will help increase their safety, quality, productivity and interoperability.
Declining crude oil prices and reduced capital expenditures have created significant market challenges for companies since we last convened in Las Vegas. Our customers are seeking new and innovative ways to reduce construction and operational costs by leveraging Intergraph technology, and we know attendees will take back key learnings from their time at the conference.
“Innovating Together” is the theme of this year’s PP&M keynote address on Tuesday, June 2. You will see and hear first-hand how PP&M’s global customers are innovating to successfully overcome market challenges by utilizing the broadest solutions portfolio in the industry.
We have another exciting PP&M track planned, kicking off with our annual Technical User Forum (TUF) meetings on Sunday, May 31. This is a great opportunity to interact with fellow users and Intergraph experts to discuss your favorite solutions.
TUF meetings will cover a wide array of topics:
- 3D and visualization
- Process design and engineering
- Information management and SmartPlant Enterprise for owner operators
- Materials management
- SmartPlant Construction
