Following the success launch of SMT’s User Forums last year, the company are pleased to announce the return of their Asia and European Forums, and the addition of the North America Forum which follows the opening of the SMT LLC office in Michigan, US earlier this year. The User Forums are located across the globe, to ensure that they are accessible for all SMT clients and partners, and will provide an opportunity for those looking to develop their knowledge of SMT’s signature CAE software, MASTA.
The User Forums are free to attend and will feature presentations from current MASTA software users and SMT engineers & developers. There will be various technical experts from SMT on-hand to present live demonstrations of the latest features of the software and outline future plans and developments, and the event will also provide an opportunity for attendees to network with other users of MASTA. The success of the conferences last year attracted industry experts, senior executives, engineers, academic institutions and related associates.
Richard Woodward, Managing Director, comments: “2018 is proving a key and exciting year for SMT around the globe, as we continue to demonstrate our commitment to our customers and do our utmost to enhance the user experience of MASTA, DRIVA and MEASA.
Following two hugely successful MASTA User Forums in 2017, we have decided to add another symposium to the calendar and hold a MASTA User Forum in North America, specifically for our American and Canadian customers, and for any other users who wish to attend. We feel that making the leap from the East and Europe, extending the conventions to cover three continents, demonstrates our dedication to our users and their specific requirements. The events represent great opportunities for users to get to know each other, share knowledge and experiences and discuss the growth and development of our world-leading software.
I am also very pleased to announce that in addition to these forums, we will also be hosting educational workshops in the European and North American seminars, to provide “on the spot” guidance to users of all levels of expertise.”
The details of the Forums are as follows:
SMT Asia User Forum
Date: 21 September 2018
Location: Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre – Shanghai, China
SMT North America User Forum
Date: 11 October 2018
Location: Oakland University INCubator – Rochester, MI, USA
SMT European User Forum
Date: 24 October 2018
Location: BMW Welt Business Centre – Munich, Germany
As the full agenda is being finalised, current MASTA users and interested attendees are encouraged to register their interest via the SMT website to reserve their place: www.smartmt.com/events
Our first User Forum in USA was a huge success. SMT staff discussed MASTA’s latest improvements as well as planned future developments. We also had two external speakers recounting their own experiences using MASTA in their projects.
