The DTMC (Design Technology Management Conference) at Autodesk University may be one of the best reasons to attend AU if you are a Manager.
The DTMC is an event right before AU that is focused completely on Managers. The DTMC event is about actively participating with your Management level peers around topics that matter to Managers.
Here's a short video interview that highlights Why, What, and How the DTMC @ AU matters to you.
The number of people who can actually attend the new extended DTMC @ AU 2011 will be limited. Last year only 400 attendees were allowed in!
Pay attention to AU sign up dates and registration details as they become available.
