Five Reasons to Attend AU 2020

There are many reasons to attend AU 2020. If we were to list them all, we’d be here a long time. It’s our first global digital event and it’s happening November 17-20. From Day One inspiration in the keynotes to on-demand learning to live class Q&As and topic-based meetups, there’s a lot to choose from. Attending AU is an investment in yourself and your future—and the future of your industry. And with no cost this year, it’s an investment that everyone can afford to make. Register now.

Check out these top five reasons to join us:

1. Learn new skills

Learn

With 750+ new classes available on demand, AU 2020 is the place to learn new workflows, refine old ones, and see what processes others are using to solve common challenges. Hands-on labs and instructional demos give you a chance to walk through it with an instructor, and if you missed a click or want to see how to apply a workflow to your own project, join that speaker for the live Q&A associated with their class.

2. Get industry insights

Insights

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the details of your own projects and lose sight of the big picture of how your industry and your job are evolving. AU gives you a chance to step back, ponder the big questions, and see with new eyes. How is emerging technology changing the way we work? How can you benefit and stay ahead? Where will things be in two, five, or ten years—and how do you want to fit in? Join us for the Industry Keynotes, the General Session, and industry talks and live panel discussions to get a better perspective on what’s happening today and where things are headed tomorrow.

3. Stay connected

Connect

There’s no replacement for an in-person conference, but AU 2020 provides new ways to connect with others in your field around the world. Ask questions and interact directly with speakers during live class Q&As. Follow speakers to see what else they’re up to. Visit the Answer Bar to get the most from your tools and for 1-on-1 product support. Join live meetups focused around industry topics to share insight with like minds.

4. Spark inspiration

Inspire

What’s your new possible that keeps you learning and looking forward? Tune into Theater talks and Industry Keynotes to hear from thought leaders, see pioneering approaches in practice, and discover new solutions. Whether it’s a new fabrication technique, a unique approach to sustainability, or a broader perspective on where business is headed, AU 2020 is the place to broaden your perspective.

5. Be an influencer

Influence

At AU, everyone’s a learner and everyone’s a teacher. Join live roundtables scheduled throughout the week (they’re the only kind of class with an attendance limit, and they’re first-come, first-served). Connect directly with Autodesk and give your input on the future of the tools you use through focused research sessions, or by visiting the Idea Exchange. Make your voice heard and share your own insight and knowledge.

There are so many reasons to attend AU 2020. We hope you’ll join us. Register now and stay tuned for more details.
