In our previous events, those who attended reported they received a terrific collection of useful information.
Attendance is free.

Registration is required at http://bowentechnovation.com/seminars2020/register/
Registration is limited to the first 100 registrants.
An additional Q&A and Instructional session has been added on Friday, March 27 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Bowen Technovation headquarters. During this session, we will have an informal town hall type forum where attendees can ask specific questions about their AstroFX systems and get instruction from Bowen staff on those systems. We will have AstroFXAudio, AstroFXAurora, and AstroFXCommander systems set up to show the attendees the operation of the systems in direct regards to the questions asked or instruction requested. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
For more information or answers to other questions, contact us at (317) 863-0526 or firstname.lastname@example.org
A spacious auditorium classroom setting will allow BT staff and invited industry specialists to conduct classes focusing on
new technologies and production methods as they relate to exhibit and presentation systems. A workbook will be handed out.
These are intended as professional development workshops, not sales pitches, and will include classes on the topics listed below.
We have invited a very select group of firms with whom we regularly work, and they will be exhibiting in an area just outside the auditorium entrance. We have dedicated 90 minutes at lunch time and two 15 minute breaks for you to visit these.
Want to see a modern domed theater in operation? Or want to view the heavens though Indiana’s largest telescope? For those who arrive the evening of the 25th we plan to hold an open house reception at the newly upgraded Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium at Butler University. See details below.
