“We have an amazing community of customers and partners and we know this will be quite a significant week for them,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon president and CEO. “Every year, HxGN LIVE becomes more diverse - diverse in the sessions and keynotes we offer, diverse in the technologies we present, diverse in the experiences we plan and diverse in the attendee body. We are honoured to have conference participants from all over the world, and we are excited about this four-day opportunity to show them all corners of Hexagon’s global brand network.”

Rollén will officially open the conference with his keynote address, “The Disruptive Power of Transformation,” Monday, 2 June at 5:30 p.m. in the MGM Grand’s Garden Arena.
