UK 2023

Open House UK

In 2023 we will host our third Open House in the UK and after a very successful event last year we are once again returning to the MTC in Coventry.

At Open House UK we will update you on the latest release 12.0 of the CarMaker product family; our software for virtual test driving offers many new features and optimizations. We are very excited to introduce to you our brand new Virtual Vehicle Development Tool Suite: VIRTO which offers seven web applications that can be easily integrated into your vehicle development process. We will have presentations directly from the UK development team who were heavily involved in this innovative project.

Our varied agenda includes interesting presentations and exhibitions from our local customers and partners as well as live demonstrations and displays.
