The 11th UK Altair
Technology Conference 2019

The UK's Leading Digital Design Event

21st May ‐ British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire

Thank you for attending

Thank you to everyone that took part in the 2019 UK Altair Technology Conference on Tuesday 21st May. We hope you found the presentations interesting and the networking opportunities valuable. We will be working hard to release as many presentation recordings as we possibly can over the next few weeks to give you an opportunity to re-watch them at your leisure and share them within your company.

With more than 350 attendees from across the UK and Europe's leading manufacturers, it's clear that we need to have a larger room with more seats next time around!

If you have any questions or comments about the day or the technologies shown in the presentations, please let us know by visiting our contact form here.
