With a theme of ‘Learn. Grow. Connect.’, our 2016 annual conference – held in Malaysia, Korea and Japan recently – has provided a record number of owner operators, engineering, procurement and construction companies (EPCs) and fabricators with insights into latest engineering and technological innovations.
As one of the leading networking events for the oil, gas, power and marine industries, the conference resonated well with the interests and priorities of our customers in Asia-Pacific. They connected with industry experts, saw our technology in action and leveraged best practices from other companies.
Some of the highlights of the conference included:
- Keynote sessions hosted by visiting Intergraph PP&M executives, which explored topics related to technological and business innovations in the oil, gas, power and marine industries.
- Presentations by leading owner operators, EPCs and third-party organizations that are already using Intergraph PP&M’s innovative solutions to drive productivity in their projects.
- Multiple standalone learning sessions covering topics such as the cloud; enterprise information management; engineering and schematics; 3D engineering, visualization and analysis; and procurement, fabrication and construction, presented by Intergraph PP&M’s local and visiting product experts.
- A glimpse into the future of augmented reality with PP&M modeling software and Microsoft HoloLens enabling users to interact and collaborate using high-definition holograms to immerse themselves in the inner workings of their work sites digitally.
Franz Kufner, executive vice president of Intergraph PP&M Asia-Pacific, said, “This is a demanding time for operators, engineering companies and fabricators in Asia, and we are seeing an increasing number of companies play a major role in the industry. We are delighted the Intergraph PP&M 2016 Conference provided a record-number of attendees in Malaysia, Korea and Japan with best practices and actionable strategies to build their technical skills and industry knowledge, as well as network with their peers – all critical elements to ensure the future of our industry.
