Fasten back your face sacks, Develop3D Live is coming up in March… I think it’s March… Yes, I’ve just looked at the full moon shining across my garden shed shingles and it is indeed coming to you LIVE on March 26th, 2015. That’s a Thursday. It’s hands-down the best product development conference, and absolutely free to boot. You do need to be registered though, so gaze upon the details and set your sights toward Warwick Arts Centre, UK.

This year’s conference is a single day of sheath myelinating software, hardware and product development intensity. You’ll be amidst 33 speakers, 4 industry specific tracks, over 60 exhibitors and a tour through the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) facility. Speakers include: Dominic Wilcox, designer; Richard Varvill, Reaction Engines; Carl Bass, Autodesk CEO; Gian Paolo Bassi, SolidWorks CEO; Mark Sanders, Inventor; Jon Hirschtick, Onshape CEO and founder of SolidWorks.

Martyn Day took a sip of blended Scotch and said, “There are simply no other events where you will find competing design software developers sharing a stage to talk about future developments, let alone be able to see and touch the latest advances in hardware such as 3D printing machines, workstations and 5K displays.”

We agree, the guest list is phenomenal. The show is even bigger than previous years with new mid-day snacks and industry specific tracks. The four tracks include a Product design track, a Make/3D print track, a Start-up track and a Hardware track. Along with the speakers and focused sessions, they have over 60 software, hardware and manufacturing exhibitors smiling from their stands, ready to demonstrate the wonders of their products.

If you’re in the UK, or fancy a trip, register now to get your free ticket.
