Many great reasons for attending an event

Users throughout the region came together to meet,  network and learn about new Creo functionality. There
were a lot of great questions  asked and answered.  It’s always fun to try to stump the Pros with questions.
Mark Tentler from Honeywell won a $20 Sheetz gift card for asking the best question.

Three of our Users gave presentations at this event. Users who give presentations can earn up to $250!
Daryl Atkins from FN won best presentation for this event.
