There are a few differences between the two events. The September
event is organized by Graphics Systems, a SolidWorks reseller in the
Midwest. This event is specifically for their customers. The Midwest
Region SolidWorks User Conference in October is a SWUGN sanctioned and
supported event organized and managed by The Midwest Region SolidWorks
User Groups. SWUGN - The SolidWorks User Group Network - is sponsoring
four of these regional events this year.
The Midwest event features a keynote address by SolidWorks CEO John
McEleney, appearances by Greg Jankowski, Gopal Shenoy, and Brian
Harrison of SolidWorks, and special technical sessions by Ed Eaton and
Phil Sluder of SolidWorks World fame.
In addition, each registered attendee will receive the newly released
SolidWorks for Dummies as part of the conference giveaways.

User Community Coordinator or your regional SWUGN rep.
