UGS and PLM Europe Announce Record Attendance at User Conference

FOR RELEASE Monday, November 6, 2006

LONDON – UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced a more than fifty percent year-over-year increase in attendance for PLM Europe 2006, the conference and exhibition of UGS customers in EMEA. 

PLM Europe provides attendees with the opportunity to learn first hand about the future of PLM and UGS products directly from UGS representatives and other users from around the world.  The conference brings together a diverse group of UGS PLM technology managers and users to share PLM best practices and learn how manufacturers are pushing the boundaries of innovation.

Recently held in Frankfurt, Germany, customers and partners from 31 countries enjoyed keynote presentations from explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and companies such as Aberdeen Group, Hewlett-Packard and Siemens.  
“The time spent at PLM Europe was invaluable in giving us new ideas on how to put lifecycle thinking at the heart of our business,” said Maarten Romers, CAD / PDM team leader, Mechanical Development Support at ASML.  “The quality of the information available and enthusiasm of everyone involved in the event was extremely high.  We left Frankfurt with a host of ideas on how to improve our existing processes.  That kind of knowledge is invaluable.”

“PLM Europe 2006, the biggest European UGS user conference to date, reflects how our business has evolved in the last year,” said Henry Seddon, vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa Marketing, UGS.  “With globalisation and competition at an all time high – no matter what industry you’re in – the time is now to be looking at how you can harness innovation to drive your organisation forward.  The quality of the seminars and depth of discussion this year demonstrate that PLM is right at the top of board-level agendas across Europe.”
