Split Engineering shared how the technology they’re bringing fits perfectly into the Hexagon portfolio.
Attendees heard directly from Hexagon employees, partners and users in technical sessions on how our technology is improving their work and daily lives.
Or attendees could take some time to check out The Zone, where they were free to test out demos and learn more in-depth about the tech behind them.

(I don’t have footage of me using it but here is another curious soul discovering what it feels like to be a bird above Seattle) #HxGNLIVE #virtualreality #technology pic.twitter.com/rIo5pXeg2j— Ailbhe Goodbody (@MM_Ed_Ailbhe) June 12, 2019
It felt great to see all the hard workers let off some steam during the social events, change-makers deserve breaks too!
