You can expect a diverse selection of classes that are highly informative, speakers that are well informed and organized, and a community to support you along the way.

There’s nothing quite like AU. It's not just a flashy conference—you get access to top-notch classes and learn from real-life talks that apply directly to your industry and job.

I love AU because I always feel heard—whether it’s during class Q&As or when I get to speak directly with the Autodesk team. It’s an awesome experience that I look forward to each year.
