Optimism at scale

The power of you, technology and community
What is it I need to do? What does technology need to do? And what is it we can only accomplish together? When you can answer these three questions, you can begin to scale optimism, arguably your most essential business asset. Optimism is at the root of innovation and growth. Optimism – the deliberate engagement in a solution to our most challenging problems – is what the world relies on to scale sustainability.
Join the HxGN LIVE Global opening keynote address, as Paolo Guglielmini, Hexagon’s president and CEO, takes the audience on an extraordinary journey. Your assumptions about what optimism is – and isn’t – will be challenged. Discover why being realistic and being optimistic are not opposites, but rather are perfectly aligned, and learn why realistic optimism isn’t a sentiment, but a strategic course of action.
Guglielmini will focus on the three critical elements needed to achieve optimism at scale: the power of you and your own actions, the power of technological innovation and the power of community to achieve the things we were never able to achieve before.

First person innovation
There’s no such thing as a pessimistic innovator. In fact, innovation is the ultimate expression of optimism. Implicit in every new product or solution is the belief that we can do better … we can be better.
Hexagon’s Chief Technology Officer Burkhard Boeckem kicks off day two of HxGN LIVE Global – Innovation Day – with a message for every innovator: the time to innovate is right here, right now. And this time it’s personal. He’ll assert that complex “industrial” technologies should be held to the same standards we expect of consumer-centric technologies. They should be intelligent, intuitive, efficient and inspiring.
As Boeckem unveils some of Hexagon’s most exciting innovations, you’ll discover how their entire innovation strategy is focused on you and your experience, regardless of industry or application. He’ll recalibrate user expectations with first-person innovations designed to be sophisticated yet simple, and ready to be deployed – right here, right now.

The opportunity of a lifetime
It’s tough to catch a break in the hard-fought trenches of managing industrial assets. Hexagon is convening industry leaders at HxGN LIVE Global to explore together the most promising strategies and solutions for sustainable growth during one of the most dynamic and volatile business cycles the world has ever experienced.
Join Mattias Stenberg, president of Hexagon’s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division, as he lays out the case for this generational opportunity — a steeply climbing growth curve that empowers the industry to resolve their energy trilemma — energy transition, energy security, and energy affordability — while accelerating both profit margins and sustainability as your portfolio of assets accelerates towards the goal of net zero.
Stenberg will map out how Hexagon’s innovation and strategic partnerships are creating a dynamic new ecosystem of solutions that leverage the full potential of your data. There is one catch: this opportunity requires bold action. It requires a break from existing conventions of our industry, a break from path dependencies — even breaking from our current sense of where to find opportunity. Yet, this is the break that can launch your business on a steep growth trajectory of profitable sustainability.

The autonomous future of construction is in the room
The global mandate for a vastly more efficient and sustainable construction ecosystem is clear. But how can construction companies maintain profitability and reduce risk on the journey to net zero? They can do it by using digital intelligence to gain visibility and insights into every aspect of design and construction, and by leveraging real-time data to automate and ultimately autonomise tasks and workflows.
Join Thomas Harring, president of Hexagon’s Geosystems division, for a unique, behind-the-scenes conversation with the experts who conducted a landmark research study that validates the exponential value of automation. These industry thought leaders will challenge assumptions and highlight breakthroughs that are available now. By building automation and intelligence into construction workflows, job sites will be safer, more efficient and less wasteful than ever before. The autonomous future is already here, ready to enable businesses, people and the environment to thrive sustainably.

Summit Ballroom 216 | 6000 At the nexus of people, progress and the planet
Can optimism be manufactured? It’s not only possible, it’s happening in the world’s most forward-thinking companies. They’re adopting innovations across all stages of the manufacturing process – from design to engineering, production to quality management – providing new options that empower makers to create higher-quality products with zero waste.
Join Josh Weiss, president of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, as he dives into the future of optimised manufacturing. He’ll be joined by your industry peers and innovators who are redefining supply-chain enablement, automation in reshoring and how technology is complementing human ingenuity. The manufacturing world is ready to unleash human potential, accelerate progress and drive sustainable outcomes worldwide – turning the impossible into the possible.
Together, at this nexus of ingenuity and innovation, we are manufacturing optimism for a better tomorrow, and that is an opportunity worth seizing.

When change comes, are you ready?
Organisations can get stuck doing what they’ve always done, which is fine — until it’s not. The world doesn’t wait around until you’re ready. When you’re unprepared, “good enough” can quickly become “not enough”. When the unexpected interrupts your routine, are you free to respond successfully? Or, are you held back by outdated information and systems?
Join Steven Cost, president of Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division, and fasten your seatbelts as he takes the audience on a wild ride to discover what really happens when you disrupt the disruption.

Innovative service is your greatest advantage
Your journey to a viable and vibrant future requires maintaining your competitive edge while helping build a sustainable world. Innovation in service excellence will pave the way to success, yet seizing the opportunities means making a break from the status quo. A transformative service experience demands exponential change, and it won’t happen with an incremental mindset.
Join Moritz Lauwiner and his guests as he dives into how you can differentiate and elevate your service offerings. He’ll show why surveyors can and should be optimistic in the face of risk, and he’ll introduce you to surveyors of notable ingenuity who – in partnership with Hexagon – are unlocking new services with technology while educating and empowering their clients to foster a culture of courage and creativity. Incorporating service innovation into the DNA of your business, will propel you to a bright future– one that is more profitable for you and more sustainable for the next generation of surveyors.

How autonomous solutions and great leadership can help save our world, and explore new ones.
Operating a mile underground, a mile underwater or hundreds of millions of miles beyond our planet requires perfect insight, extraordinary precision, flawless execution and most of all, courageous leadership in the face of challenges. Technology innovation empowers us to accomplish what was considered impossible just decades ago. Achieving the impossible has become the expectation — and the urgent need today. The mandate is clear. Greater insight, more efficiency, more productivity, more precision and cleaner operations are required. And the stakes couldn’t be higher — the future of our planet depends on our success. Whether it is developing an outrageous new way of landing spacecraft on Mars or the world's cleanest sampling system for acquiring core samples of Martian material for return to Earth, Adam Steltzner has been leading the way. Working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory where the motto is "Dare Mighty Things”, Adam has had to face the technical and collaborative challenges that go hand in hand with developing solutions that are new, novel and defy convention. Adam will explore the challenges of facing new ideas and the balance between innovation and reliability as he tells the story of breakthrough collaboration wrapped in the tale of putting spacecraft on Mars.
