ASCENT Delivers Expert-Led Classes and Exhibits at Autodesk University 2017
ASCENT Introduces Smaller Book Size, Offers Pre-Order Discount and Showcases their 2018 Courseware Offerings at Booth D314
“Seeing Autodesk software users become more efficient and effective inspires our team and this year we’re sharing our expertise and learning solutions in the classes we are teaching as well as at our booth,” says Paul Burden, director of product development, ASCENT. “And to guarantee that titles don’t sell out, we’re offering the ability to pre-order books at a 25 percent discount, free shipping and onsite pick up at the ASCENT booth. Visitors to the booth can also peruse our entire 2018 Courseware catalogue online, purchase courseware via our eStore and meet several of our authors to learn about our standard and custom learning solutions.”
New from ASCENT
AU 2017 attendees picking up their pre-show orders at the ASCENT booth will be among the first in North America to receive ASCENT’s new 8.5 by 7 inch print courseware materials. While the page count and content of the books remains the same, the reduced size makes the materials a more portable reference tool for use in the office, the classroom or on the project site as well as being more environmentally friendly with a 36 percent reduction in the amount of paper used to print each book.
