97%Agreed they would recommend this conference to a friend or colleague.

Network with SOLIDWORKS Users

The Graphics Systems User Conference is the only place in the Midwest where you can network with over 300 peers that work with the same design software as you every day. Meet with designers that create similar products and use similar solutions to bring back new knowledge and experience.

Representatives from local SOLIDWORKS User Groups located throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan will be on hand to answer questions on how joining these user-driven groups will enhance your SOLIDWORKS knowledge and social network.

Discover Complementary SOLIDWORKS Solutions

Meet with representatives from dozens of SOLIDWORKS Solution Partner companies, the largest collection in one place at one time in the Midwest. Take advantage of your opportunity to meet with all of the exhibitors in a couple days, compared to the time and effort required to schedule individual in-house visits to learn more about all the possible solutions.

Access to all of these companies at a single venue — combined with scheduled presentations to attendees — provides an ample opportunity to research products and services related to your business, meet with technical representatives from these companies to ask specific questions, and evaluate potential solutions for your organization.
