The scene is the iconic Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, completely crowded, where in a few moments the show will begin. The experienced set designer of Brazilian scenography company P&G Cenografia, Altamir Júnior, huddled in his small control cell inside Box City with coordinators from other disciplines, finally receives the long-awaited signal via radio: "Everybody get ready!" And the show begins: the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

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.
