AVEVA announced additional speaker, sponsor and agenda details for this year’s AVEVA World Summit. This global event is being held from Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in Boston.

Author Dan Roam will offer the keynote session. Based on his bestselling book, "The Back of the Napkin", Roam will explore how visual thinking can be used to improve business communication.

“We have a very strong agenda for the 2013 Summit with an impressive list of customer speakers eager to share their experiences,” said Mat Truche-Gordon, executive vice-president, Business Strategy and Marketing, AVEVA. “From my perspective, this is what makes the Summit such a successful event.  With the help of our customers we have created an environment in which we can learn from each other. The complexity of projects and assets is steadily increasing and engineering must operate across multiple disciplines, companies and geographies."
