Conference Examines How Architecture, Landscape and Entertainment Design Visionaries Transform the World with Vectorworks Software

Columbia, MD, March 4, 2015 — Designers who dream of transforming the world are invited to join a community of visionaries at the 2015 Vectorworks Design Summit on April 27-29 at the Sofitel Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. The event features breakout sessions by leaders in the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries, as well as opportunities to network with Vectorworks® software engineers, power users, third-party partners and other professionals during educational sessions, meals and evening events. Registration is now open at www.vectorworks.net/design-summit.
 
"Every day, designers choose Vectorworks because it’s a tool that allows great design to materialize from inspiration, exploration and discovery," says Nemetschek Vectorworks' Chief Marketing Officer Stewart Rom. "The Design Summit will provide a gathering point for our community of users to generate new energy for upcoming projects, sharpen their vision and share pioneering designs. I hope attendees leave the event feeling moved to continue creating unexpected and exciting design solutions."
 
Keynote Speakers
 
The Vectorworks Design Summit begins Monday, April 27 with optional, pre-conference training in Vectorworks software and a welcome dinner. Tuesday's schedule opens with a presentation by CEO Sean Flaherty, who will discuss how Nemetschek Vectorworks supports the creative process and helps designers in their journey toward working smarter and more efficiently.
 
Flaherty's presentation will be followed by an inspirational keynote message from design visionary Leo Van Broeck, a founding partner of BOGDAN & VAN BROECK in Belgium. Van Broeck will share his theory that the design of attractive, dense and high-quality urban areas is a catalyst for changing how much space people think they need to lead enjoyable and meaningful lives, and how that belief has led to his active participation in the promotion of spatial quality and awareness, the domain of urban density and optimal land use.
 
Nemetschek Vectorworks' Chief Technology Officer Dr. Biplab Sarkar will open Wednesday's sessions with a keynote address, providing unprecedented development insight into the Vectorworks line of CAD and BIM design solutions, including features that will be in Vectorworks 2016.
 
Adrian McGregor, FAILA, RLA, MAIH, MPIA, managing director of Australian landscape architecture and urban design firm McGregor Coxall, is Wednesday's Closing Speaker. McGregor transforms public spaces across the world into living, breathing works. His firm has completed work in six nations, focusing on sustainable design in the public domain and urban settings, going beyond the reduction of environmental damage and using regenerative approaches to actively advance each site’s ecology. McGregor has been recognized for his work in sustainable design, as well as in mediation, helping communities, authorities and developers to work together to create better-informed designs.
