Chris Cheung, organizer and host of this year’s conference, spoke to us about CAVE:
Chris Cheung, Product Manager, Autodesk Consumer Group
Background: Late Fall has always hosted Autodesk University, our annual gathering for experts primarily in Architecture, Engineering, and Manufacturing. I like to think of CAVE as the new ‚right brain’ of Autodesk University. It takes all the incredible history and experience we’ve had hosting events & workshops in our art, design & media & entertainment space and brings it together into one outstanding series of events in Las Vegas. As its own conference, we’ve been able to really cater the agenda to the creative artists and focus on making an experience that is really exciting and relevant. Part of this is bringing together people from cross disciplines and really letting that chemistry happen when both similar and different creative ideas come together.
The tone of CAVE is really set when you look at the Keynote speakers. Between Lorne Lanning, Syd Mead, Neil Gaiman, John Cleese and Angelo Sotira, not only are these immensely fascinating people, they bring in a wealth of experiences and insight in all the creative & business endeavors in which they have been involved. Joining this with the breadth of knowledge and expertise in the break-out sessions and the CAVE Plus master classes, this event is something special…and I haven’t touched on the parties and what we have planned for the exhibition hall!
We intend CAVE Conference to grow, not only as an annual event, but already we are getting a lot of interest about taking it on the road! Based on the previous creative gatherings we’ve had over the last two years, we know this type of experience is super rewarding and often packed with unexpected surprises.
Thank you. We’re looking forward to seeing what this year’s conference will bring. To visit CAVE Conference’s website, click "Read more" at the bottom of the page.
