The Vectorworks Design Summit begins Monday, April 27 with optional, pre-conference training in Vectorworks software and a welcome dinner. Tuesday's schedule opens with a presentation by CEO Sean Flaherty, who will discuss how Nemetschek Vectorworks supports the creative process and helps designers in their journey toward working smarter and more efficiently. His presentation will be followed by an inspirational keynote message from Leo Van Broeck, a founding partner of BOGDAN & VAN BROECK in Belgium, who will share his theory that the design of attractive, dense, and high-quality urban areas is a catalyst for changing how much space people think they need to lead enjoyable and meaningful lives.

On Wednesday, Nemetschek Vectorworks' CTO Dr. Biplab Sarkar will provide unprecedented development insight into the Vectorworks line of CAD and BIM design solutions, including features that will be in Vectorworks 2016. Later that day, the Summit closes with a presentation by Adrian McGregor, FAILA, RLA, MAIH, MPIA, managing director of McGregor Coxall, an Australian landscape architecture and urban design firm. McGregor's firm has completed work in six nations, focusing on sustainable design in the public domain and urban settings, going beyond the reduction of environmental damage and using regenerative approaches to actively advance each site’s ecology.
