COADE will hold its 2009 COADE User Conference September 28-30 at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel in Houston. COADE’s aim for this conference is to ensure that attendees leave with the tools they need to be better designers and engineers. The conference has been purposely designed with a combination of labs, lectures, exhibitions and roundtables.The event will showcase CADWorx Plant Design Suite, CAESAR II, PV Elite and TANK; offer classes covering more than 60 subjects; and bring together leading experts in plant creation. Also featured will be an exhibit hall with more than 20 vendors showcasing the most up-to-date plant design and engineering products and services. The 2008 user conference drew 300 plant design and engineering professionals from 26 countries. Drawing from the success of the 2008 CADWorx User Conference held in Houston last October and its accompanying Drivers of Success competition, COADE will award competition winners of this year’s event with all-expense paid trips to the conference. The competition invites users of CADWorx, CAESAR II, PV Elite and TANK to submit success stories of real-world applications to win. Last year’s event awarded all-expense paid trips to 10 winners.
