The first HxGN LIVE user conference outside of North America started earlier today in Hong Kong at AsiaWorld-Expo with 3,500 attendees on site. The HxGN LIVE conference is the world’s largest event that showcases the power of Hexagon technologies, covering the full spectrum of Hexagon’s information technology portfolio.
Under the theme “Great Stories Start Here,” HxGN LIVE Hong Kong is organized along five tracks - Geospatial; Geosystems; Metrology/Manufacturing; Process, Power & Marine; and Synergy - and presents an exciting lineup of must-see technologies, exclusive presentations by industry experts, 250+ sessions and networking opportunities with peers from around the world.
The opening of The Zone commenced HxGN LIVE, with 85,000 square meters of innovative presentations and live demos showcasing all that Hexagon has to offer.
Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén shared the first keynote of the conference on the topic, “Why Shape Matters to Hexagon.” He addressed the role information technologies play in fuelling imagination and transforming opportunities into action.
In his keynote, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President Gerhard Sallinger noted that the Asia-Pacific energy and petrochemical market has experienced pressure to improve the efficiency of large capital projects, and the PP&M executive team introduced new product developments on the horizon to help achieve those goals.
The welcome reception, held in The Zone, gave attendees the chance to visit with colleagues via track-based networking, listen to strolling entertainment, and enjoy culinary stations featuring both Western and Chinese fare.
If you aren’t able to attend HxGN LIVE, you can still experience the conference digitally on hxgntv.com, beginning with the opening keynote. Footage of additional keynotes, track sessions and hands-on classes will be posted throughout the week.
