Thank you to everyone who made our 6th Annual SigmaTEK Academy a success! Even though the event has come and gone, we are already planning ahead for next year’s event!
On May 10th and the 11th, 2016, we were joined by eight sponsors including: Fabtech, SOLIDWORKS, Muratec, Cincinnati Inc., WHITNEY, ALLtra, SolidCAM, and SOITAAB. Our attendees, some traveling from Canada and beyond came for the two-day event to learn more about SigmaNEST and what’s going on in development.
The first day was met with a buzz of excitement at our SigmaTEK Systems headquarters as we anxiously awaited our guests’ arrival. Food had been carefully prepared, goodie bags expertly arranged, and sessions specially planned to accommodate our SigmaTEK Academy attendees.
Throughout our attendees’ stay they participated in general sessions where our SigmaNEST experts gave everyone the scoop on what’s new, ways to use the software better, and what our developers are working hard on. Breakout sessions commenced so that attendees could learn more about specific functions within the software. Questions and comments were welcome, as our SigmaTEK team members took the time to understand the various
recommendations from customers and sought to solve technical problems experienced by some. Not only were our guests able to speak candidly with our SigmaTEK team during the small breakout sessions, but they were given the opportunity to speak one-on-one with an Application Engineer.
After a full first day of presentations and conversation, attendees and employees alike set their sights on our cookout. Our SigmaTEK team, attendees and sponsors stuck around for burgers, cold beer, and great conversation. Despite the severe weather, we still managed to wipe out the beer cooler—a huge relief for whoever carried the coolers!
Our second and last day of the Academy was filled with more conversation and breakouts. Most notably, a representative from our customer, General Kinematics, Eric Schwantje spoke about his switch to SigmaNEST.
We are so thankful for everyone’s participation in this year’s event. We believe it was one of the best yet! Citing recommendations and comments, we are looking to make next year’s event bigger than ever, filled with more breakout sessions, and one-on-one attention with our engineers! For every SigmaTEK Academy, our goal is to educate and excite our attendees for what’s to come and how they can further improve their fabrication operations using our SigmaNEST software. Stay tuned for updates as we begin the planning phase of our 7th Annual SigmaTEK Academy.
