WALTHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 21, 2014 — Dassault Systèmes (Paris: DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that speakers from industry leaders Honda, Cessna and Anglo American will be among those discussing how they are navigating the future of their businesses in the Age of Experience during Dassault Systèmes’ annual 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM, taking place November 11-12 at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Keynoting the event is William Taylor, co-founder and founding editor of Fast Company, a magazine that has won countless awards and has earned a passionate following among executives and entrepreneurs around the world. Taylor is the author of the New York Times best seller Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win and Practically Radical: Not-So-Crazy Ways to Transform Your Company, Shake Up Your Industry, and Challenge Yourself. During his keynote Taylor will talk about innovation and how companies can transform and shake up their industries.
“For business leaders today, transformation is about the profound re-imagination of their business, where what’s possible in the future is unique to who you are, what you offer and the ideas you stand for. Only by rethinking what is possible will we drive successful businesses forward,” said William Taylor. “The 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM is one of the few places where transformational thinking is brought to a practical, actionable level. I’m excited to meet the people who will be shaping the future of the products and services we live with every day.”
During the event, Dassault Systèmes customers and partners will discuss and illustrate the transformation taking place in business today, where consumers expect instantaneous answers, delightful experiences and simplicity. Attendees will hear from customers representing a multitude of industries, including aerospace, transportation and mobility, energy, high-tech, life sciences, consumer packaged goods, natural resources (mining) and industrial equipment, that are doing business in the Age of Experience by delivering not only great products but memorable experiences for their own customers. They will also learn how the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can help them navigate the future by enabling innovation and collaboration across the business ecosystem.

“In the Age of Experience, the path to business success has never been filled with more challenges and opportunities.

During the FORUM, customers will illustrate how they are building those new paths using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”
In addition to speakers, customer case studies, live demos and networking events, the 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM will offer attendees an update on the latest innovations from Dassault Systèmes, including its groundbreaking Living Heart Project and its collaboration with academia to develop the next generation of the workforce.
