‘Rocky Steps’ Pave Path for upcoming Vectorworks Users Appreciation Party at Philadelphia Museum of Art

Is Vectorworks Architect the Rocky Balboa of architectural CAD or BIM? Perhaps yes, perhaps no. In either case, Vectorworks users will have a chance to relive the famous moment from the famed Rocky movie while they ascend same Philadelphia steps next month at the Vectorworks Users Design Summit.

The iconic “Rocky Steps” will lead attendees of the Vectorworks Design Summit to a Customer Appreciation Party at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. Hosted by global design software developer Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., the party will bring together architecture, landscape and entertainment design visionaries, Vectorworks software engineers and global partner product providers for a night of fun, which begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m. EST.

In addition to dinner and an open bar, attendees will enjoy Back2Life, a high-energy, eight-piece dance band, as well as access to world-class holdings of European and American paintings, prints, drawings and decorative arts, including the current Japanese exhibit, “Ink and Gold: Art of Kano.” Party attendees will also get to see the visual impact of a Vectorworks design first-hand as a local Vectorworks user has signed on to light the museum party.

The Balboa of CAD—Vectorworks is a Lean but Powerful Competitor

“Having such an iconic museum as a backdrop to the software training and networking I will experience as an attendee at the Vectorworks Design Summit is such an asset to all members of the design industry,” said Luc Lefebvre, OAQ, senior project architect and BIM manager at King + King Architects. “The venue will serve as a perfect complement to the Summit’s ground-breaking discussions and networking events, providing additional inspiration through creative artistic and architectural achievements worldwide.”

Architosh Commentary

There is a certain alignment in Nemetschek Vectorworks’s decision to host the party in relation to these famous steps in downtown Philly. Much like the character Rocky Balboa, regardless of who he seemed to be fighting, Vectorworks and Vectorworks Architect in particular in the architecture market, is quite possibly—pound-for-pound—the biggest puncher in its heavyweight architectural CAD/BIM class, the ranks of which include Autodesk Revit, Autodesk AutoCAD, Bentley Microstation, Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Nemetschek’s ALLPLAN. Perhaps this isn’t about measuring weight with regards to application size but rather application price.
