The day started off with an overwhelming confluence of people. Nearly 10,000 people are in attendance at this years event. And I think they all ate breakfast at the same time. It is quite a hike to get to the food area. Then the long hike back…
The kickoff event started with Carl Bass and more. Many speakers and live demos. Mostly they were pointed at manufacturing, infrastructure and some AEC. Maya had a presence in the event and was used for some effects.
The event hall was packed – 360 stage. The whole audience was surrounded by video screens that projected stitched images of cityscapes. One image included a fly thru of the Washington DC area.
The AUGI booth is being set up… it will be ready for the Beer Bust tonight.
