Okay, it's official.  2012 has started it's race to the finish line.  Can you believe the first quarter of the year will be over by the time you come back to work on Monday?  Really, it will be.  That puts you just one short month away from the start of ACE 2012 International.

It only happens once a year and it'll be gone before you know it.  So why not take a moment today to sign up and get those travel plans out of the way?!  That way you can sit back and relax knowing that your seat is guaranteed.  Oh, and of course, as always it's free to attend and word really has spread about what a great job we do feeding you too.

Need a little more motivation?  Here's my list of this year's top reasons to attend:

  1. Network with industry leaders.  Yes the conference is in Detroit.  No that doesn't mean it's all automotive all the time.  In fact, we've confirmed speakers and attendees from leading companies across Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Consumer Products, Fashion & Apparel, Industrial and Medical Device companies from across the globe.
  2. It's the hottest Open Source PLM Conference around.  Breakout sessions and the main room were jam packed last year and over 97% of ACE 2011 attendees said they achieved their personal goals at the conference.
  3. Business Process Transformation.  Sometimes achieving change can be like climbing Mount Everest.  You've got tools, a guide, and plenty of know how but those last few meters to the top can really be challenging.  This year's conference will feature plenty of engaging presentations and opportunities to speak with folks who've been there, done that and they may just inspire you to finish the climb your on, or plan the next one.
  4. Learn the latest technological advancements.  Aras is known for it's leadership in pushing the bounds of technology to make your enterprise run faster, better, smarter.  Come and learn about technical topics that matter to you.
  5. Aras is different.  If you haven't seen it for yourself, come discover why people choose Aras, stick with us and keep coming back for more.

Collaboration is the cornerstone of Aras and ACE 2012 is the place where everyone comes together.  We look forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and plenty of new ones too.
