Tom Brokaw to Keynote Intergraph 2009 International Users' Conference

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Tom Brokaw, one of the most trusted and respected figures in broadcast journalism, will appear as the featured keynote speaker for Intergraph 2009, Intergraph Corp.’s annual international users’ conference. Under the theme "Powering the Future," Intergraph’s geospatial and enterprise engineering software customers from around the world will gather from June 15-18 in Washington, D.C. at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.

In his keynote presentation, Brokaw will draw from his broad range of professional experiences as a broadcast news anchor and author. Brokaw has won every major award in broadcast journalism, including two duPonts, a Peabody and several Emmys. During his keynote presentation, Brokaw will describe how today’s challenging economic times can enable our generation to define itself and power the future, just as the Great Depression created the Greatest American Generation.

Conference attendees can also look forward to a private evening reception at the Smithsonian Institution's renowned National Air and Space Museum. Recognized as the world’s most visited museum, the facility prides itself as being a center for historical research on aviation and spaceflight and the related science and technology. Attendees will have access to the museum’s historic spacecraft, aircraft exhibits and IMAX theaters throughout the evening. This evening event represents a return to Intergraph’s roots in the Apollo space program over 40 years ago.

"Intergraph’s international users’ conference is consistently recognized by our customers and the industry for delivering a valuable educational experience, relevant speakers and unique value," said Halsey Wise, Intergraph chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We look forward to welcoming our customers from more than 60 countries to hear Tom Brokaw and other industry leaders for a timely perspective about the current state of our world and their ability to power their own futures and those of upcoming generations."
