It’s getting Closer – SWW 2013

SolidWorks World 2013 is just under 2 months away and I’m so happy to be going this year. It was tough not being able to attend last year, but my reasoning was sound.

I’m not sure what I’m excited about most, seeing old friends, reconnecting with the partner channel, seeing what new products are out there…ah, who am I kidding, I’m looking forward to all of it. I’m going to stop by the Dell booth and thank them for the wonderful job they did on the new Precision M4600 I just bought. I’ll be swinging by to see the guys at 3DConnexion to see if they have anything better than the SpacePilotPro. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for new baubles that may help me in my day-to-day job. I have some interviews lined up, and I plan on attending a few breakout sessions and reporting on them as well.

One thing I’m disappointed about is that there is no longer a CSWP event. While I understand SolidWorks’ reasoning for discontinuing it in favor of a CSWE event, I’m still bummed. However, I’m setting a goal of getting my CSWE certification in time for SolidWorks 2014. I also plan on trying to sneak in to this years event with my press credentials. I’ll let you know how that goes.

Have you ever been to SWW? If not, do you want to go?

This year is the 15th year SolidWorks World is being held and will be back in Orlando, Florida January 20-23, 2013.

      Jeff,

      I can go ahead and confirm that your press credentials won’t get you past the door at the event! However if you’d like I can set you up with the necessary credits to take and pass the CSWE before SWW arrives! You have just under 2 months which should be easy for you!

      I’m not sure which challenge I should take, Mike. The “you won’t get past the door” one or the CSWE one. Hmm…

      He knows your face, so first one might be harder. Even employees aren’t going to be able to breach his security. I’ve heard that they’ve hired Pinkerton Security to bounce. ;)
