Sponsored by Safe Software and hosted by IMGS, the key event for FME enthusiasts worldwide – the FME World Tour 2014, will arrive at the Ashling Hotel in Dublin for a third consecutive year on the 10th of April. The world tour will then go to Belfast on the 11th of April to The Mount Business and Conference Centre, where IMGS will host the first ever FME World Tour event in Northern Ireland.
To coincide with the release of FME 2014, the world tour will visit 50+ cities globally, with presentations and live demonstrations from FME customers and industry experts, to showcase the power of FME 2014. FME from Safe Software is considered to be one of the most powerful solutions for converting data between formats, and with each new release of FME, Safe Software aim to increase the functionality and usability of FME for their users, of which there are many throughout Ireland and worldwide.
General Manager of IMGS, Ciaran Kirk, expresses his delight at hosting two FME World Tour events in Ireland this year, “IMGS is delighted to have the opportunity to host two Irish events as part of the FME World Tour 2014. These events are always well attended by users from around the country, and it provides a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about the new capabilities of FME, receive technical assistance from FME Certified Professionals, and network with other FME users.”
Ken Bragg, European Services Manager with Safe Software is excited to be speaking again at the Dublin event “This year’s FME World Tour theme is: Explore, Discover, Innovate and is set to be even bigger than last year’s event. Also, after conducting FME Server training in Dublin in February, I am very interested to see what other users in Ireland are doing with FME.”
