BISim Announces the First-Ever VBS Technology Conference, April 28-30

Apr 07, 2020

ORLANDO, Fla. (USA) — Designed to replicate ITEC for Bohemia Interactive Simulations customers, the VBS Technology Conference is a 3-day series of presentations and live demonstrations highlighting the latest developments in VBS4, VBS Blue IG and our suite of developer tools. In these one-hour presentations, we’ll give live demos of our products and we’ll invite you to ask questions of our product experts.

The sessions will run twice each day at 8:30 am EDT (14:30 CEST) and 1:00 pm EDT (10:00 am PDT). The afternoon sessions will cover the same material as the morning session, so participants only need to sign up for one session each day.

Just like a typical convention, we’ll also be organizing individual customer meetings with as many customers as we can to go through what they’ve seen in these presentations and demos and to do custom demos for each customer as required. Hopefully by the end of the 3 days, you will have as much information and understanding of BISim’s new technology as if ITEC had actually happened, or at least that’s the aim!

Here’s a brief look at the daily sessions.
