With September’s release of Vectorworks 2020, some of our executives, distribution partners, and users celebrated new features and capabilities around Europe with Vectorworks Design Days.
Expo-Scène 2019, a two-day event taking place in Montreal, is kicking off April 17-18, and we want to see you there! Hosted by the Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology (CITT) — a national organization that works for the betterment of the Canadian live performance community — this annual event is dedicated to professionals working with audio, sound, lighting, audiovisual, visual, and multimedia technologies.
Last week, the annual Prolight + Sound show took place in Frankfurt, Germany, with over 90,000 visitors from 152 countries. This event allowed many of our esteemed Vectorworks colleagues to share the latest and greatest in entertainment design.

After a week of hands-on training, a handful of Rental and Staging Network (RSN) members can see their Spotlight visions clearly now, and their rendering pain is gone! In just five short days, they took their knowledge of our software to the next level with the help of Vectorworks Trainer Michael Groves and Entertainment Product Specialist Jim Woodward.
For our Spanish speakers, the wait is over. Vectorworks 2018 is now available in Spanish, which includes Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Designer, and Fundamentals. This year, we’ve added Braceworks, a structural load analysis add-on module for designers and riggers working on temporary structures. Our Spanish version follows the English version, released in September. In addition to English and Spanish, the following languages will also be offered by spring of 2018: Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Polish, Italian, Norwegian, and Portuguese.

At the crux of our philosophy, we’ve always been committed to developing the best design and BIM software that’s in tune with the needs of designers. To do so, we’ve leveraged input and implemented product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects, and lighting designers, among other design professionals. Another vital part of these efforts involves the help of our internal industry experts on our product marketing team, so we’re excited to announce that there are three new additions to this ever growing group: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. After all, there’s no such thing as having too many industry experts.

Earlier this month, our own Industry Product Specialist Frank Brault led a weeklong class at the Stagecraft Institute of Las Vegas on the theatrical applications of digital drafting. During his intensive session, Brault shared career advice gleaned from his more than 30 years of industry experience and taught design techniques using various CAD programs, including Vectorworks Spotlight software.
