Nemetschek Vectorworks Offers Students Free Admittance and Covers Hotel Expenses at Major Industry Conferences

Global design software developer Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. is committed to educating the next generation of emerging professionals because the future of creative design depends on their success, the company says. To help fulfill that mission, the company is awarding free conference passes and hotel stays to students who enter its Conference Pass Giveaway program. Winning students will gain industry knowledge and establish professional connections by attending one of three major industry conferences:

Live Design International (LDI) 2015, October 19-25, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV, attracts over 10,000 design professionals working in theatre, concerts, clubs, theme parks, and houses of worship. The winner will see the latest gear in action and replenish their creativity. More than 350 companies exhibit, providing live demos and the opportunity for face-to-face discussions.

ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo, November 6-9, 2015 in Chicago, IL, is the largest tradeshow in the landscape architecture industry. With more than 500 exhibitors each year, it provides the opportunity for attendees to experience new products, services, technology applications, and design solutions.

Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, November 18-20, 2015 in Washington, DC, offers three days of speakers, industry showcases, LEED workshops, and tours of Washington, DC's green buildings. The event is the largest green building conference and expo in the world, the company says, and is the premier event where designers renew their commitment to sustainable building.

For a chance to win a free registration and hotel stay at one of these three events, interested students must "Like" Vectorworks on Facebook, as well as write a 300- to 500-word statement about why they want to attend a specific conference and how they believe it will benefit them professionally. The program is open to US students only. Applicants do not have to currently use a Vectorworks software program in order to be eligible.

"LDI, ASLA and Greenbuild are the perfect platforms for students to deepen their knowledge of their chosen craft while networking with world-renowned experts," says Alice Lowy, US marketing manager at Nemetschek Vectorworks. "We therefore provide a fun, easy way for students to attend these events for free and enable them to propel their skills forward while learning about exciting developments in the design industry."

Students may visit http://www.vectorworks.net/conference-pass to read the entry rules and submit applications, which are due September 7, 2015.
