Call for presentations

The Bladed User Conference is a unique opportunity to present your recent work using Bladed. Last year’s event featured presentations of cutting edge work from Alstom Wind, Acciona Windpower and 8.2 Consulting. This year's event will include presentations from other key industry players.

Please contact us if you have a topic you would like to present at the conference. Perhaps you have completed some research work or carried out a novel design project using Bladed – we’d be delighted to hear about your work.
