Industry Talks 

Much like a lecture, AU Industry Talks should provide thought leadership or present industry insights, case studies, and other innovative experiences in engineering, design, manufacturing, business management, and more. Speakers are not expected to provide in-product training or walk-throughs, though some explanation or introduction of software may be valuable. Industry talks are 60 minutes.


Instructional Demos 

Instructional Demos provide attendees with detailed presentations of in-product workflows, processes, tips and tricks, and other ways AU experts are maximizing their Autodesk product knowledge. Instructional Demos are 60 minutes.


Hands-on Labs 

Hands-on Labs provide direct software instruction, with individual experience gained in the material or application. Most classrooms include 45 computers, each shared by 2 attendees. As many as 3 lab assistants can support the AU speaker. Hands-on Labs are 90 minutes.
