FORUM8's Design Festival 3Day + EVE event is a platform used to announce advancements in our products and also to support and announce ongoing research and excellent applications of our software. For this year's event we are focusing on the DX, Digital Transformation, era. How the recent changes in our workstyle have impacted business and our futures will be our main activities.

With the idea of MaaS, or Mobility as a Service, in mind we are looking at how autonomous driving systems will be included in the simulations of the new digital city concepts. This year we will host the 5th Autonomous Driving Conference and with the help of 4 industry experts provide a lecture series. Every year there is quite a bit of excitement surrounding the autonomous driving systems so we hope to answer all your questions. In addition, we will also hold the 19th 3DVR Simulation Contest which will showcase the many possible uses of UC-win/Road in different industries and fields. During this showcase the various nominations and prize winners will also be announced.

For Day 2, the 8th Student Cloud Programming World Cup, CPWC, and the 10th Student BIM & VR Design Contest on Cloud, VDWC, winners will be announced an awarded. Students from all across the globe will be participating so it is sure to be an exciting event. There will also be the 4th Hagura Award Announcement and the 13th International VR Symposium of the Association for Promotion of Advanced Expression Technology.

For Day 3, experts from the Cabinet Secretariat of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will give a lecture series on regional revitilazation, national resilience, and i-construction. There will also be the 7th National Resilience Design Award Ceremony which will showcase various works that contribute to disaster prevention and national resilience. Throughout the event we will announce 3 new books including FORUM8's "City and Architecture Blog Overview" and "Structural Analysis by Numerical Simulation, Augmented and Revised Edition". Be sure to also check out the exhibition corner where you can experience the latest updates in our software such as Ver.21 of Shade3D. We have also prepared a VR tour of our showroom for our homepage. We hope you can fully enjoy this event and have the opportunity to geto know FORUM8's VR / CG, 3DCAD, and FEM software solutions.
