2014 SDS/2 Users Group Conference this Week in Lincoln, NE
The 2014 SDS/2 Users Group Conference kicks off this week in Lincoln, NE! The three-day event is primarily a learning opportunity. Activities include training on very specific topics determined by the Users Group, the unveiling of new enhancements, award presentations and other events. Both Design Data employees and SDS/2 customers present innovative SDS/2 techniques, encouraging users to employ the power of SDS/2 to its fullest.
We’re excited to give our partners a chance to exhibit during the conference at the Partner Pavilion. The location will allow our partners to show off their wares and demo their software to SDS/2 users from all around the world. SDS/2 will also be meeting with each partner on an individual basis throughout the course of the conference.
We’d like to take the chance to thank our sponsors in advance for their support of SDS/2 and this conference. We couldn’t do it without you.
The 2014 SDS/2 Users Group Conference is October 15-17 in Lincoln, NE. Learn more about the conference.

Design Data to Showcase SDS/2 Software at BIMForum in Dallas
Hot off the heels of exhibiting at the Design-Build Conference & Expo this week, we’re heading to another awesome industry event in the area; BIMForum.
BIMForum will be held October 9-10 at the InterContinental Dallas Hotel. The conference will focus on optimizing construction and will feature intelligent, real-world examples on how BIM is being used proactively to have a measurable impact on the construction process.
