Las Vegas, NV, June 2, 2014 - Hexagon today kicked off its 2014 HxGN LIVE conference as thousands of attendees travelled to Las Vegas, NV, to participate in the four-day event that runs from 2 - 5 June at the MGM Grand Hotel. 

The world's largest event that brings together and shines a spotlight on Hexagon's global brand network, HxGN LIVE is dedicated to helping customers harness the power of Hexagon technologies. Purposed to empower attendees to do great things with far-reaching and global impact, HxGN LIVE is a forum for customers and partners to access the latest trends in design, measurement and visualisation technologies, exchange ideas and explore solutions toward creating a better, smarter world.

"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.
