Following up on the highly successful CAU Express 2013, Intergraph are once again sending out a team of product specialists for technical presentations of CAESAR, PVELITE and CADWorx software, and to review new features in the 2014 versions.  

This one day event will be held at Focus Rooms, Sunninghill, Gauteng on 30 April 2014.

The CADWorx and Analysis University Express 2014 consists of in depth training sessions on CADWorx, CAESAR II, and PV Elite, all packed into a one-day, high-powered learning experience

Intergraph CADWorx, CAESAR II, and PV Elite product experts will be assisting you in expanding your technical knowledge that will not only leave you well informed, but assist you in becoming a better plant designer and engineer, all while networking and sharing your experience with others. CPD Points will also be obtained for attending the Caesar II and PV Elite training sessions.

Each event will be capped off with product focused Special Interest Groups and an optional networking reception dinner in the form of a social braai. 


*Note this Agenda is still is a draft and is subject to change.

 Why Should You Attend ?

What differentiates CAU Express from similar industry events, is that Intergraph is staging the event locally in various countries around the world, and the event provides specific focus on providing technical information to the end user , rather than a focus on product marketing.   It is the user-centered, interactive hands on approach that sets this event apart from others.

  • Enhance and refine technical skills
  • Learn Latest tips and tricks
  • Increase productivity
  • Network with other experienced users
  • Learn about recent product developments
  • Obtain ongoing opportunities to enhance your learning experience
Here is what our past attendees are saying:

"At CAU you learn things from the sessions and other users you meet, that you would never find in the user manuals".

"I was extremely impressed with the standard of presentations the depth of knowledge shown by those who presented, also those who attended. If there is one event that best suits engineers and designers in our industry it must surely be this one."

"Truly enjoyed all the information shared, best of show goes to the interaction with all the Staff and Attendees at this conference.  All had great information to share and look forward to sharing more with all in the future.”
