European User Forum


User Forum:

We are proud to announce the return of the European User Forum this October at the BMW Welt, Munich in Germany.

Following the success of our series of User Forums last year, SMT is excited to announce that we will be holding another year of User Forums and would like to invite you to join us for the conference this year. The forums have provided a great opportunity for customers and partners to learn about new and emerging developments of the company and industry trends, including the latest developments in our CAE software MASTA.

The event will be a perfect opportunity for engineering directors, executives, analysts and engineers across various driveline development industries.

The forum will feature keynote speakers, presentations from both technical experts from SMT as well as current MASTA software users to share their recent project developments. Although the full day’s agenda is yet to be finalised, there will be various technical experts from SMT on hand to demonstrate the latest features of MASTA and outline future developments. It also presents a great opportunity to meet and network with other users of MASTA to inspire future advancements.

Additional details will be available soon but for now, please note and save the date and location as below:
