AU2011 Day 1 - General Session

As you may know, AU2011 was last week in Las Vegas. Attendance was expected to be around 8,000 people from as many as 80 countries. There were almost 1,000 classes, labs, un-conference discussions, virtual learning sessions and keynote presentations offered in the 3+ day event.

For most people, Tuesday was the starting day although there are several events on the days preceding Tuesday. As a disclaimer, I was invited by Autodesk as a media/blogger and Autodesk covered my registration and hotel costs. Special thanks to Angela Simoes, Senior Manager, Public Relations, Autodesk, for offering me this privilege.

One of the first signs in the hall that you are at AU.

Day 0 (Monday) started out with lunch, followed by afternoon media sessions where one of the key announcements was regarding upcoming new features to AutoCAD WS. It will soon work with 3D drawings, include GPS capabilities, and new new Plot-to-Print capabilities.

Day 1 (Tuesday) started bright and early with breakfast, followed immediately by the Keynote General Session presented by the following individuals (hover over the image below for identification).
