We’re officially less than a month away from HxGN LIVE 2019, our digital solutions conference to be held 11-14 June in Las Vegas! This event is an excellent opportunity for us to gather with customers, colleagues, and other like-minded peers to discuss everything happening in the worlds of public safety and utilities. As we approach HxGN LIVE, I’m looking forward to having meaningful conversations with everyone about the past year and what’s next on the horizon.
At HxGN LIVE, Hexagon wants to know: what are the big challenges your organization is facing? For those in public safety, we know your role is to always be on – always on call, always on alert, and always looking for problems and the solutions to solve them. Our role at Hexagon is to help you stay on and to support and sustain your work. Because your missions are vitally important, we want to equip you with the right tools and technology to carry them out. That’s why your insights and feedback are so important in helping us stay ahead of the curve and develop products that make your community safer and more resilient.
We have exciting news to share with you at HxGN LIVE. The announcement will come from Safety & Infrastructure President Steven Cost during his keynote address on Wednesday, 12 June, at 8:00 a.m., where he’ll announce a new product portfolio designed to help public safety agencies realize greater coordination and agility. We believe this portfolio is going to further the digital transformation currently taking place in the world of public safety as well as shape the future as we head into 2020 and beyond.
In addition to Steven Cost’s keynote and our big announcement, HxGN LIVE will feature other engaging and interactive experiences, including:
- Breakout Sessions: With more than 35 breakout sessions across three days, there is truly something for everyone at HxGN LIVE. From establishing a data culture to exploring spatial analysis to discussing our industry-leading computer-aided dispatch (CAD) software, we’re prepared to talk about – and learn from – the issues you’re facing.
- Hands-on Training & User Groups: Is there a new technology you’ve been wanting to try? How about influencing the next generation of Hexagon products? Both options will be available this June to conference attendees. Learn from expert instructors during hands-on training workshops or join a user group meeting to make our software even better.
- The Zone: If you’ve never had the opportunity to check out our 120,000-square-foot technology expo at HxGN LIVE, you’re missing out. In this year’s Smart Cities & Nations island, Safety & Infrastructure will unveil a number of cutting-edge solutions, including data mining and analytics, infrastructure management and operation, incident command systems, multi-agency resource management, and more.
- Networking Events: At HxGN LIVE, we like to have a little fun, too. Join us Wednesday, 12 June, at 6:30 p.m. at Gilley’s Las Vegas for our Buckaroo Bash. It’s going to be an unforgettable night of food, drinks, music, line dancing, mechanical bull riding, and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet others in your industry and grow your professional network.
Designed with you in mind, this year’s four-day event will showcase our vision for a more connected world, all while providing the knowledge and insights you need to make your city a safer place to live, work, and visit. HxGN LIVE is a testament to the work we’ve accomplished together, and we can’t wait to celebrate our progress and share our plans for the future. We’re excited to have you.
We’ll see you there.
