This year, the DHI seminar and user group meeting (UGM) tour went through Bogotá, Lima, Santiago and Buenos Aires. More than four hundred people signed up for these one-day seminars addressing local challenges in water environments and learnt about adapting DHI’s water modelling technology and know-how to solve these problems.

Since the first seminar and UGM tour in South America back in 2007, these events have proven to be unique platforms for our users to meet and network with other professionals and DHI experts. The sharing of interests in addressing and solving problems related to water allow insights into how these are being dealt with by governmental institutions, public utilities, research and educational institutions, consultants and industries. At the same time, these events provide an opportunity to stay on track with the latest developments in the MIKE Powered by DHI software family and innovations made in methods and solutions provided by DHI.
