It’s never too early to start planning to attend the year’s largest week of learning Autodesk products and networking with new/old friends. Last year, marked the 5th year of being in Las Vegas and it was the biggest turn out for AU yet. Last year pushed the number of attendees over 4,000. It was a lot of fun as usually and this year should be even bigger. In favor of a different location Autodesk has chosen Orlando, Florida for this years AU. So those that live on the East coats will have a short flight, while those on the west coast will get to experience the flight across the country. Really doesn't matter too much for me as I am in the mid-West anyways. So either direction isn't too bad.
This year’s event will be held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort from November 28 - December 1. This year marks the conferences 13th year, it will be interesting to see what is in store for the attendees.

I have been at AU for the past 6 years and have enjoyed every minute of the experience. The first year is typically hard to digest the amount of information that is taught in the hundreds of classes that you can choose from over the 4 days. If you are a first time attendee don't expect to not be overwhelmed and prepare for lack of sleep.
If you attended last years event for the first time you have a good idea what I am talking about. Hope to see you there as it is truly something that every user of an Autodesk product should experience at least once. Don't wait until registration in August opens to ask the boss to attend AU, you might want to slowly work it in over the next couple of month's.
