Every year, GT hosts a series of conferences around the world. At these two-day events, leading OEMs, suppliers, and consultants deliver engaging technical presentations about their work and GT debuts features available in the newest release. At our latest conferences, engineers in Europe, North America, Japan, China, South Korea, and India gathered to learn from each other’s experiences, network with industry peeres, and discover how the latest developments to GT-SUITE v2018 will enhance their work.
