Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Keynotes for HxGN LIVE 2018

What is a technology conference without keynote presentations? True, it’s still a conference. But keynote presentations set the tone for the week – outlining the vision, setting the theme, and bringing the excitement.

Every year at HxGN LIVE, business and thought leaders from across Hexagon present keynote topics about industry trends, product roadmaps, technological innovation, and more. For Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, keynotes are an opportunity to discuss what trends are shaping the industries we serve, how we’re addressing these needs through innovative technologies, and the successes of many of our customers around the globe. It’s a chance for attendees to see the future of our technologies and imagine what’s possible for their organization.

Here’s a preview of the keynotes we’ll be presenting during HxGN LIVE 2018

IoP > IoT
Presented by Steven Cost, President 

Every day, you hear the buzz about the enormous potential of IoT. None would disagree that things are important to connect, and Hexagon is connecting millions of devices that are advancing Smart and Safe Cities. But yours is a higher calling than connecting simply “things.”

We will never achieve Smart Cities together unless we enable an Internet of People (IoP) – from those men and women who deliver essential public services to the citizens who benefit from them. Just like IoT, an IoP must be seamless, real-time, and always available wherever and whenever you need it.

Join Steven Cost, President of Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division as he shares the huge potential of IoP, how quickly it’s evolving, and what we can expect in the future. You can see his keynote in the Venetian Ballroom on Wednesday, June, 13 at 8:00 a.m. Or watch it streaming on HxGN TV and Facebook.

Backstage Pass LIVE
Presented by Kalyn Sims, Chief Technology Officer, and Dan Retzer, Senior Vice President of Global Product Development

Shakespeare once said, all the world's a stage, and we are just players. While that may be true, in the world of Hexagon, you, our customers, are the stars, and we your supporting cast. Get ready to peek behind the curtain as Kalyn Sims and Dan Retzer shine the spotlight on some of the "backstage" individuals who make Hexagon solutions possible. Meet the real people who give you tools you need to make our cities and communities smarter and safer. You can see their keynote in the Venetian Ballroom on Thursday, June, 14 at 8:00 a.m.

When Your Contingency Plan Fails
Presented by Bill Campbell, Senior Vice President of the Americas

Disruptive technologies and natural disasters are the 21st century's new normal. These significant events fall outside typical daily operations and can strain resources and infrastructure to their limit. You can plan and prepare, but what happens when those contingency plans fail? How can you rise above the chaos? Join Bill Campbell as he addresses how Hexagon solutions can provide the vital connections needed to make your city truly resilient when the unexpected happens. You can see his keynote in the Venetian Ballroom on Friday, June, 15 at 8:00 a.m.
