Professionals and students across the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), landscape and entertainment design disciplines are invited to join a global community of visionaries at the 2016 Vectorworks Design Summit on April 25-27 at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park. With keynote presentations by Vectorworks executives and industry leaders, an inside look into Vectorworks software's future development cycle and networking opportunities with product engineers, power users and third-party partners, attendees will leave Chicago fueled to solve their next design challenge.

“The conference brings together a community of creative minds who rely on Vectorworks design software to conceptualize and transform their ideas into real experiences that can be shared with the world,” says Vectorworks’ Chief Marketing Officer Stewart Rom. "At our 2015 Design Summit, it was exciting to see so many people who share a passion for creative design, exchanging ideas, exploring concepts that give them a competitive edge and truly having a great time together. I know that our 2016 Design Summit will surpass expectations and deliver a meaningful three days."

The standard registration fee for the event is $499 but is reduced to $199 for early registrants through October 31. Design students and instructors who register before October 31 may also take advantage of early registration discounts, paying $49 rather than the standard $99 rate.
