Attend AU2015 and become an AUGI Premier Member Free!

Are you planning on attending AU2015 in Las Vegas this year? AUGI is rewarding the first 150 AUGI members who register with a free one year AUGI Premier Membership.

Earlier this summer AUGI President Bob Bell discussed AUGI support for Autodesk University and asked for your help to demonstrate that support.

"Your board of directors and management team recently met with some folks from Autodesk to discuss Autodesk University. Autodesk wants to know how influential AUGI is with its members regarding Autodesk University. Does AUGI do enough to inform its members about AU and encourage them to attend the event?"

Show your support – it’s as easy as 1-2-3!

1 – Visit to access the main website for AU2015. Log in and proceed with registering to attend.

2 – Near the end of the process is field for a Registration Code, where you can enter “AUGITRK”. This will show you attending AU with AUGI. It’s also how you get your free membership upgrade (first 150 registrants only).

3 – Complete your registration process and get ready for another fantastic Autodesk University. Don’t forget to attend  the AUGI General Meeting, just prior to the AUGI Reception. Look for more information from us soon, and search the Autodesk University scheduler to add it to your itinerary.

Thank you for your membership, participation, and support for your Autodesk User Group International.

Register now for AU 2013!

Today marks the culmination of 9 months of effort to bring you a conference that will help you learn new techniques, explore new technologies, learn about the latest trends, make new business connections, and quite simply, expand your professional mind.

This year Autodesk has worked hard to make registration easier by uniting the AU online universe with the rest of Autodesk. Now you’ll use your Autodesk account (Autodesk ID) to register for the event. If you don’t have an account, no worries. You can easily create one when you register. Read the FAQ to learn more.

Autodesk has updated its website to help you find all of the preconference events scheduled for Monday, the classes and hands-on labs that might interest you, and other activities that are taking place during the conference.

And if your focus is product design and manufacturing, this year is particularly special. You’ll want to check out the Product Design & Manufacturing page to see all that we have planned for you.

Autodesk has also gathered all of the activities and class highlights for other industries into focused pages for AEC, Infrastructure, and Oil & Gas, Media & Entertainment, and Education.

AU classes fill quickly—don't miss out!  Sign up early (by October 20) and save up to $500 too.

Register now!
