About the Event

Together in the last year, the PTC Global Partner Network blew the lid off digital transformation value creation, fostering one strategic partnership after another at a rate that’s moving so fast it seemingly has no limits. Today, that momentum is unstoppable.

Whether you’re a Solution Provider, Global Systems Integrator or Technology Provider, you won't want to miss the PTC Global Partner Summit at LiveWorx. In one co-located day, PTC Global Partner Summit has the potential to open a window to unmatched opportunity, with keynotes and speakers, break outs and networking events.

From morning to night, at the Global Partner Summit we will redefine our realities and reimagine a future unbound by limits: capturing new ideas, uncovering new opportunities, sharing insights and unleashing the collective creativity of more than 800 partner innovators, strategists and change-makers across our ranks.

There are No Limits on how far we can go. One Purpose. One Moment. Together.
