9 Launch Events, 9 Cities, 500 Attendees… SolidWorks 2014 Has Arrived

Article by Erin Elliott updated October 24, 2013


The first 3 weeks of October were quite busy here at Javelin! On October 1st we kicked off our first of nine SolidWorks 2014 Launch Events in Cambridge Ontario and Calgary Alberta. We continued our journey across Canada hosting events in Edmonton, Vaughan, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Burnaby and Langley right up until Thursday October 17th.

During each event, our guests learned what’s new in SolidWorks 2014 for sketching, parts, sheet metal, weldments, assemblies and drawings. Our presenters provided demos of SolidWorks add-in solutions for Simulation, Data Management, Technical Communication and Documentation, and Electrical Design. SolidWorks enthusiasts also learned the benefits of creating prototypes of their designs using SolidWorks and a Stratasys 3D Printer. We did take a few breaks throughout the day to enjoy a great lunch and networking with other guests.

We also had several guest speaker presentations from our sponsors including; In-House Solutions, OneCad, HP, Stratasys and MentorWorks.

Of course, there were many great prizes and several lucky winners! Prizes included SolidWorks Training vouchers, iPad Mini, $100 Keg gift certificates, $50 gas cards, iTunes, Home Depot, Javelin swag and more!   Congratulations to all of the recipients of these great prizes!

The events were a huge success this year and there are many people to thank. Everyone at Javelin contributed to the coordination of each event, but these events would not be successful without the attendance of our customers and SolidWorks users. Thank you to everyone who participated in each event.
