FARO 3D Conference 2017

April 27th – 28th, 2017

Dear 3D digital world citizens,

Today, 3D reality capture resides in a very dynamic development phase. Google Tango, Microsoft Hololens, Occulus, iPhone 7, photogrammetry, drones and many more will contest for their share in this huge market and will influence the way we all deal with 3D in future. This creates opportunities and the need for profound strategies. The smart, connected and informed professionals will build their strategy on a solid foundation of market observation, collaboration and knowledge sharing. This is what successful businesses build upon and this is what the FARO 3D Conference is about.

Bernd Becker

The 6th edition of the FARO 3D Conference offers the latest state of the art in reality capture and emphasizes more than ever the learning and knowledge exchange in technical hands-on trainings, with interesting real user examples, and the opportunity to discuss and network with the 3D community and FARO experts. You can learn from the best in the business, discuss with thought leaders and innovators, and share industry trends, experiences, insights and visions.

We paused with the 3D Conference in 2016. However we kept with the tradition of this conference and chose an exciting location in the greater Stuttgart area. This venue in the Southern black forest combines architecture and style and tells the history of an exciting century. This interesting venue style combination supports the idea of the FARO 3D Conference to transform visionary thoughts into energetic plans and powerful ideas.

Let’s experience the latest in reality capture. I look forward to meeting you at our conference,

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Bernd-Dietmar Becker
FARO Chief Technology Strategist and Evangelist
