GlobalSim has just concluded a successful user conference in conjunction with a product showcase which took place September 17-19. The conference, which was held in Park City, Utah, was the 3rd such event held by GlobalSim since the company executed a management buyout in early 2016.
Education sessions at the conference focused on topics such as visual effects, best practices for training managers, scenario and curriculum development, future product design, and incorporating virtual reality simulators into a training environment. GlobalSim managers also conducted a useful feedback session to receive input for future development projects.
“We brought together some of our best clients from around the world”, says Brad Ball, GlobalSim’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, who helped organize the event. “The User Conference was twice the size of last year’s event – we had clients and attendees from all around the world who were eager to learn and collaborate with each other.” Participants in this year’s conference came from Belgium, Canada, France, Philippines, Israel, and many from within the United States.
Following the educational sessions, participants visited GlobalSim headquarters and had the opportunity to test the new simulators as well as the latest GlobalSim virtual reality simulators which were also on display. “We are highly satisfied with the direct coordination we have with GlobalSim” stated Marygene Montenegro, Acting Training Manager at the Philippines Port Authority. “Attending this conference was a great opportunity to learn the best practices of a simulator and discuss with training managers from other countries who also have a GlobalSim simulator” said Montenegro.
The User Conference comes during a period of growth for GlobalSim. “This year we focused on product development” remarks Jonathan McCurdy, GlobalSim’s President and CEO. “As we’ve attracted new customers, we’ve also invested in our business and hired more employees. The User Conference allows us to bring our employees and clients together, gather some feedback, collaborate, and share our vision of the future.”
GlobalSim plans to hold the next User Conference in 2021.
