Invitation to the ASME PVP Software Demonstration Forum by:
James F. Cory, Jr., Session Chairman, Computer Technology Committee (CTC)
This year the annual ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference will be held in Anaheim,
California at the Hyatt Regency Orange County from July 20-24, 2014. We look forward to a very successful conference through the participation of our global community.
On behalf of the CTC, I would like to invite your company to participate in the PVP Software
Demonstration Forum that will be held during the 2014 PVP conference. The Forum is a session sponsored by CTC as a single day event on Tuesday, July 22, with vendors demonstrating their software products from 8:00 AM to 5:45 PM.
This will be the twenty-fifth year for the Software Forum. We were very successful at our last
conference in Paris and are now looking forward to Anaheim.
The Forum is designed to provide a convenient opportunity for mechanical engineers and designers who are active in the Pressure Vessel and Piping Industry to evaluate current software products and capabilities. The PVP Conference has arranged an outstanding four- day series of Technical Sessions for this meeting, and expects attendance by more than 800 engineering participants from industry, government and academia. Their areas of interest include PVP research and development, design, operation, inspection, and maintenance.
As a software vendor, this event provides an excellent sales opportunity for you to make contact with current and new users of your software products within the Pressure Vessel and Piping community. Discussions, demonstrations and distributing product literature at the Forum will educate these engineers when it comes to making and influencing buying decisions.
Software Forum Details:
Each participating company will be allocated with one six-foot draped table, two-chairs, one power outlet, and an easel to hold a sign or poster describing your software or displaying your company name. Small vendor displays can be accommodated.
As a participant, you will be expected to bring and install your own computer. The Forum can
accommodate two to three company representatives demonstrating their product at any one time. There will not be any product sales permitted at the Forum, but literature can be distributed and the participating companies may have hospitality suites during the conference. There will not be any phones at the display locations.
The Forum is setup so that the participants will be given maximum exposure to the Conference attendees. The event will be located where conference participants gather for the technical sessions and where coffee and refreshment breaks will be held.
Each company will be asked to contribute $300 for the one-day Software Forum. If you
wish to attend the ASME conference technical sessions, you must register and pay
conference fees separately through ASME.
To reserve a location at the Software Forum, please register by May 31, 2014.
