Speaking at the event John McEleney, CEO of SolidWorks said, “We brought the SolidWorks World to India to provide the growing SolidWorks user community in India a platform to share ideas, participate in valuable learning activities, test their skills, and join in some networking and group activities. Through this event, users discovered how they can leverage SolidWorks for greater business success.”
“SolidWorks also has its eye on the rising trend towards design outsourcing, considered to be the next big wave in ITES, as an area of opportunity. We see a huge market for 3D mechanical design software in India and is already realizing strong growth in the region, which is one of its “pillars of strength” in Asia.” he added.
