The end of August signals a new software release around the corner, but this doesn’t mean we say goodbye to Vectorworks 2020.

If there’s one thing humans are known for, it’s the ability to adapt.
Since the surge of COVID-19 in March, millions of lives have been entirely uprooted. Between lockdowns and unemployment, people have been finding creative ways to help each other in any way they can.
See how two Vectorworks users Heinle, Wischer und Partner and Eventions Productions have taken the challenges of the pandemic and used their skills to help their communities.
We know how much time it takes to switch between design platforms; it requires a lot of upfront consideration of your design process as well as some trial and error, something that may take months. That’s why we want to make this as easy as possible. Let us show you all the ways Vectorworks Spotlight can be the design tool you need to enhance your workflow with this handy guide, which provides an in-depth look at Spotlight and its all-in-one design features.
Working remotely in the live event world is inevitable. Whether you’re designing in your hotel room, in the airport, and even at home, you need a reliable way to share your designs with your teams. But, when your software isn’t built to handle a multi-user environment, collaboration is nearly impossible.
In this time of social distancing, it’s a necessary yet sad reality that most of this year’s trade shows have been canceled. We’ve decided to bring the Vectorworks trade show experience to you virtually, so that you can take advantage of the learning opportunities you would have seen at the in-person events.
The best way to know that a product is right for you is trying it for yourself. The second-best way is hearing it from someone else.
Quality and performance are tremendously important to us. Each year we release a new version of Vectorworks, and each year we release a number of Service Pack updates to supplement the major version change.
