“The agenda topics are of high interest to any PLM professional, and the line-up of speakers is great, matching previous PDT Europe and PLM Road Map events,” says Mr. Håkan Kårdén, Eurostep’s Director of Marketing. “In times like these, everything is challenged, but the way to respond is not by standing still but by accelerating efforts and investments to help us meet the future. This year has demonstrated that we need to design PLM to be an agile, resilient, and systems-wide life cycle as well as supply chain. We are looking forward to delivering another must-attend event, this time on-line,” added Mr. Kårdén.

According to Ms. Cheryl Peck, CIMdata’s Director of Marketing, “For over 25-years, we have demonstrated a commitment to delivering high client value through our face-to-face PLM conferences. This year’s virtual event will be no different. The agenda topics we have put together look to future state requirements, roadmaps, and transformational implementations that encompass people, process, and technology.”

PLM Road Map & PDT is a highly relevant event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally, providing independent education where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.
