Re: Hannover Messe 2017

It was our first meeting in real life and we didn t even take a picture!!

There will be a Engineering Base demo for us, starting at 13:00 at the Aucotec Booth, Hall 6, Stand K28. At 13:30 someone from Aucotec will share their view and vision on the near future of engineering with us. If you want to bring the EPICommunity forward, it would be good to show up with as many a...

Re: Hannover Messe 2017

We're invited at the Aucotec booth. Two points on the agenda: what is the vision of Aucotec and EPIC on the (near) future of engineering + how can Engineering Base contribute to that?

What time would suite you guys best (at wednesday)?

Yep. He still knows you. You've been at Betagraphics and had a demo, didn't you?

It would be good to show up as a 'community' of forward thinking engineers/consultants.
