Mark your calendars for April 22 to April 24, 2020 because global design and BIM software solutions provider Vectorworks, Inc. will host the Vectorworks Design Summit in San Diego, California at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. Design professionals, educators and students in the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries are welcome at the fifth event that will offer industry workshops, product training for all levels of expertise, inspiring keynotes, networking opportunities and a customer appreciation party. “The Summit will be held on the West Coast, and it will not only offer the ultimate training experience, but a getaway from the routine of everyday life,” said Tara Grant, director of channel operations at Vectorworks. “We hope professionals take time out of their busy schedules to broaden their design expertise, and network with fellow Vectorworks enthusiasts while relaxing and enjoying all that the beautiful Omni La Costa Resort & Spa — one of the world’s top resorts — has to offer.” The Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is home to the Chopra Center’s total mind-body healing retreat, offers golf courses with history of PGA Tour events, eight pools, tennis courts and an athletic center with fitness classes. Located nearby in downtown San Diego, the home to the Padres baseball team, Petco Park was designed by last year’s keynote speaker Antoine Predock, architect at Antoine Predock Architect. “My favorite part of the Design Summit is just getting to learn all the different ways people use Vectorworks and the different things I can do, whether it’s in my industry as entertainment or different industries,” said Kaitlin Hill, who attended last year’s event. “Also, it’s great meeting the other people in the industry and just making those connections.” Become a Speaker/Trainer The call for speakers and trainers at the Vectorworks Design Summit is open.

Global design and BIM software solutions provider Vectorworks, Inc. reveals its two can’t-miss keynotes during the 2018 Vectorworks Design Summit: Antoine Predock, architect at Antoine Predock Architect, and Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. Vectorworks invites professionals, educators and students in the AEC, landscape and entertainment industries to attend the fourth annual event, which will take place November 4 to 6, 2018 at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, Ariz. Led by Sarkar, the “Vectorworks CEO keynote” will take place on Monday, November 5 at 9 a.m. Sarkar will focus on the company’s strategic vision and direction regarding current trends and future technology. Additionally, attendees will get a closer look at the new technologies in the latest software version, Vectorworks 2019, from the research and development leaders that made them possible. “Unlike our competition that develops products for a single industry, we have the advantage of being able to innovate across multiple industries and serve a broad array of designers. This gives us an advantage in that we can see and embrace innovations that they cannot,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Year after year, the Vectorworks Design Summit is the best place to learn how Vectorworks has advanced and to get up and running with our latest technology.” On Tuesday, November 6 at 9 a.m., Predock will deliver the second keynote, titled “Site Specificity and the Aura of Globalization.” His speech will educate attendees on how they must tune into the context of the people and vibe of a place and how the connection to those conditions can lead to unbelievable things in design. Predock will share his experience balancing the physical and digital sides of design. Predock will also talk about his wide-ranging projects, from the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is now featured on the Canadian ten dollar bill, to the Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q), a College of Media and Communications, to the Luxe Lake Gateway and Art Center in Chengdu, China. A Vectorworks user for 25 years, Predock will explain how the software played a role in these projects. In addition to these two inspiring keynotes, the conference will include 90+ industry sessions and workshops, one-on-one tech support, networking events and hands-on training. Multiple sessions will offer continuing education credits. Secure your spot at the ultimate training event and register today by visiting vectorworks.net/design-summit.
