Autodesk at Offshore Europe 2009

From Tuesday 8th September to Friday 11th September Autodesk will be exhibiting at the premier Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition in Aberdeen, Scotland - Offshore Europe 2009. This is one of the largest gatherings of the offshore oil and gas industry with over 1,500 exhibitors and in excess of 40,000 visitors over the four days.

As well as being a sponsor of the exhibition, Autodesk will have a stand just inside the entrance showing how Autodesk technology will benefit those working in the offshore oil & gas industry be more productive and competitive using Digital Prototyping tools such as Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD P&ID, Navisworks and Showcase. There will be live product demonstrations on the stand that will demonstrate how Autodesk technology will help in three key areas - Equipment Design, Plant Design and Visualisation. There will also be opportunities to speak one to one with technical engineers to ask questions learn more about the technology.

The Autodesk stand is a huge 105 sq meters, packed full of software and hardware technology! We have partnered with UK based HoloVis who have provided all of the screens and displays exclusively for Autodesk.

At the entrance to the show HoloVis have created a huge 7 meter high Jupiter Wall; this is a mosaic of 18 x 42in high-definition plasma screens that will play a show reel of how Autodesk has helped companies within the oil and gas industry. The show reel will feature designs and visualisations by a number of key Autodesk customers.

The Autodesk stand will not only have a number of high-definition plasma screens that can be used for the one to one sessions, there is also a huge 65in display on the side. The centrepiece of the stand is a 2 meter wide Apollo Wall supplied by HoloVis. The Apollo Wall is a projection screen that uses two of the latest high-definition projectors to display the live presentations but also has stereo and tracking so that visitors to the stand can immerse themselves into the 3D environment with Autodesk Showcase! It really is awesome.

If you are visiting Offshore Europe, come and see us on stand F10 to see how Digital Prototyping can take you beyond 3D using tools like Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD P&ID and Showcase.
