PTC/USER World Event 2008 to Highlight Product Development across the Enterprise

NEEDHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 29, 2008— PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced that PTC/USER, the Independent Voice of PTC Customers Worldwide, has opened registration for PTC/USER World Event 2008. The PTC/USER World Event 2008 offers learning and networking opportunities to help PTC software users from large and small organizations to implement effective product development strategies across the enterprise and to design tomorrows break-through products.

The PTC/USER World Event takes place June 1-4, 2008 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California. This powerful event will provide each participant with access to more than 250 business and technical presentations covering Pro/ENGINEER®, Windchill®, Arbortext®, Mathcad®, ProductView and CoCreate® topics, six tracks of PTC University hands-on training delivered by the PTC Global Services team, and access PTC Learning Centers where attendees can learn more about PTCs new products and capabilities.

In addition, attendees will have access to the expanded PTC exhibit hall that features more than 80 PTC partners, resellers and solution providers as well as more than 40 PTC-specific exhibits and offers attendees the chance to see PTC products up close. PTC is a proud sponsor of the 2008 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, and the exhibit hall will include some of the high school teams displaying the robots that participated in the regional and national FIRST Robotic Competitions.

This year, PTC/USER World welcomes the CoCreate community and is offering two dedicated tracks of presentations and training for CoCreate customers. CoCreate was acquired by PTC in December of 2007 and strengthens PTCs CAD offerings by adding explicit modeling to its product portfolio.

Back by popular demand at PTC/USER World are the PTC Product Development sessions and the one day Management Forum. The PTC Product Development sessions offer attendees the chance to hear and see new approaches and practices for using PTC products that they can bring back to their companies to drive improvements in their own product development processes. The Management Forum gives managers responsible for product development the opportunity to attend PTC/USER World Event keynote presentations and participate in a focused one-day event that provides case studies and executive panel discussions on issues impacting management teams.

New for 2008, the PTC/USER World Event will feature a Manufacturing Pavilion, a destination inside the exhibition hall focused on producing the designs that are created with PTC software. Table top manufacturing equipment will create components in real-time using PTC manufacturing software along with the solutions of PTC collaborative Partners offering attendees an opportunity to see and learn how art turns to part.

Keynote speakers at PTC/USER World include PTC customer Cirrus Design, the worlds leading innovator of single-engine, piston-powered aircraft and Scott Summitt, designer/innovator, professor of Industrial Design at Carnegie Mellon.

The PTC/USER World Event draws incredibly innovative people who come together each year to hear how other companies use PTC products and solutions and learn from PTC about optimizing product development processes, said Dick Harrison, president and chief executive officer, PTC. Each conference attendee will leave this event better informed, and ultimately better equipped to design leading products and succeed in the marketplace.

PTC will also host its Annual Global Media and Analyst Event and welcome more than 70 delegates from trade, IT and business media, industry analysts and members of the financial community.

PTC/USER had a single, clear vision 18 years ago to deliver a comprehensive event that would educate and inspire the attendees, said Kevin Johnson, executive director, PTC/USER, Inc. Our attendees tell us we deliver that experience each year. That because of the unparalleled value of formal training classes, educational presentations, and peer-to-peer networking, the PTC/USER World Event has become one conference that is not to be missed on their calendars. I'm looking for another exciting, action-packed week in Long Beach.
