Unable to make it to Las Vegas for AU2009? Don't worry....

So this time in three weeks I'll have completed the 17 hour journey to my hotel in Las Vegas to join up with colleagues and thousands of other users of Autodesk technology to spend three days attending classes at Autodesk University 2009.

If you read my previous blog article about AU2009, you'll know that this is the first time I have attended this huge annual event and it's something I'm really looking forward to.

However, in these challenging economic times it's not easy to make available the time and funds required to get over to Las Vegas to spend 3 days learning and improving your knowledge and skills.

With this in mind, for the second year running Autodesk University will not only be a 'physical' event in Las Vegas, but there is also a virtual event that will see a whole host of classes and content delivered on-line for those people that want to take advantage of the learning experience but are unable to make it the actual event.

You can register for an Autodesk University Premier Pass for just $99 which gives you everything included in the Free Pass plus access to 50+ select classes with Q&A streamed live
from Las Vegas. And, after the event, learn at your own pace with 350+ on-demand classes from
AU 2009—practical sessions with tips & tricks and useful downloads to help you upgrade your job skills and boost productivity.

The Free Pass is available to any AU Online members and offers a wealth of content including live AU keynotes, product clinics and much more, plus access to the AU Online community. If you are an AU Online member, log in to your account to register for AU Virtual. If you do not have a free account, it’s easy to sign up and enjoy all the benefits of membership via http://au.autodesk.com

So if you are not able to make it to The Mandalay Bay Resort for the event, you can still get access to a whole host of classes and learning content so you don't miss out.

But it gets better...

If you are a user of Autodesk software like AutoCAD, Inventor, Showcase, AutoCAD Mechanical, Revit etc and you have an active subscription contract, you can get a Premier Pass for free.....yes you read it correctly, for free!

Don't leave it too long though as we're only three weeks away from the event and some of the virtual classes are first come first serve.

Keep reading the blog as I'll be keeping you updated on the weeks leading up to the event as well as during the event.
