So is this the first real CityEngine event in the UK this year? I’m hoping we get more!
Unfortunately this event is right when my holiday is so I can’t make it, but I recommend that if you’re interested in 3D cities and can make it, you should go.
Oddly this event seems to being held by Escape Technology (a creative industry company) and ESRI Inc. not ESRI UK (although they have promoted it via twitter). This is probably down to the history of CityEngine being developed by the now bought out Procedural based in Zurich (now ESRI R&D Zurich), and the hybrid nature of CityEngine with one foot in two differing types of industry.
The great thing about CityEngine is it has uses in the creative industries of movies, computer games and graphic design as well as Urban Design and planning. This event seems geared to the creative types, but that doesn’t mean urban designers and planners shouldn’t go and find out more about this great product.

Now I hope this even paves the way for a CityEngine event for urban designers, planners and architects!
