SOLIDWORKS World 2018 – Event Ambassador Nomination

For our 20th annual SOLIDWORKS World, we’re offering a unique networking opportunity to veteran SOLIDWORKS World attendees. Each year, we witness amazing acts of kindness as veteran attendees go above and beyond to assist those new to the event - we’d like to make it official. As an event ambassador, you will get to identify yourself as a SOLIDWORKS World 2018 Event Ambassador on your event badge, and in exchange for volunteering your time, you’ll receive: a limited edition swag bag, one day passes for front row seats to general session, and the opportunity to assist and meet some fantastic newcomers. Don’t worry, even though first-timers are easy to spot, we’ll introduce you. To get started, please tell us why you are the best candidate to represent our community, and how you think you can best introduce rookies to how we do things at SOLIDWORKS World. Not all who apply for this program will be accepted.

SOLIDWORKS World 2018 – Community Event Registration

Each year at SOLIDWORKS World, our community takes it upon themselves to plan additional evening meetups with fellow SOLIDWORKS users who share similar interests. We’ve seen everything from a group of runners who meet every morning to explore the city before general session to those caffeine-addicts who grab coffee together with the coffee clique. This year, we’d like to help spread the word about your meetups and look forward to hearing about the great new contacts you make. To get started, please tell us a little bit about your meetup and explain how others can RSVP. We will review your submission and if no additional information is needed, add it to our community meetups listing.

2018 CAD Monkey Dinner
Who: As we've done every year since SOLIDWORKS World 2012, the savviest CAD Monkeys in town for SOLIDWORKS World 2018 will meet for a night of food and fun in one of our host city's hottest locations. It's become the unofficial kick-off to SOLIDWORKS World - a time when the SOLIDWORKS community can take in the city’s sights and tastes before the conference gets underway.  Since the first event seven years ago – when a handful of SOLIDWORKS gurus started off the tradition at the Hard Rock Café in San Diego – this “little” gathering has exploded in popularity. Dozens of CAD Monkeys have consistently taken over local hotspots – from Alice Cooperstown in Phoenix to the Y.O. Steakhouse in Dallas – with attendance rising every year. All are welcome! If you're interested in rubbing elbows with some of the communities most influential users, bloggers, employees and user group leaders, this event is for you. The event will be sponsored by from some of your favorite SOLIDWORKS partners, including Puget Systems, Tech Soft 3D, and TriMech, who are contributing to our food and beverage budget, while 3Dconnexion has provided several SpaceMouse Wireless Kits which will be raffled to some lucky monkeys at the event!

Where: Tom's Urban, LA Live 1011 S Figueroa St B101, Los Angeles, CA 90015
