About ESI Live

Our goal with every ESI Live is to make sense of the role and value of Virtual Prototyping. We inspire the community with practical success cases, give actionable advice on how to get started, and create new partnerships by connecting engineers and product developers with virtual prototyping natives around the globe. Join the community to find out how to displace physical tests and prototypes by virtually replicating product development, testing, and manufacturing.

Join a global virtual prototyping audience! We recommend this event to executives, managers, decision-makers & key contributors in product and program development, manufacturing, quality, innovation, sustainability, and R&D who face the following challenges:​

  • Have mission-critical needs to reduce development time & cost​
  • Face new technology challenges and growing production and assembly complexities​
  • Need to guarantee product uptime and productivity commitments throughout their product lifecycle​
  • Are compelled to secure compliance with environmental and safety regulations​

This is not about us being right but showcasing how our customers are getting it right every single day. We look forward to seeing you at ESI Live 2022!
