Perhaps one of the most entertaining events at DevLearn every year is DemoFest. DemoFest is a billed as the premier showcase of eLearning project demonstrations. While the entire conference and exposition is dedicated to the subject, DemoFest is a great place to come and really get your hands on dozens of new products. This year’s DemoFest will host more than 80 exhibitors with interactive products for attendees to play with, including ForgeFX’s HazOps, a 3D industrial job-trainer that we developed for California State Compensation Insurance Fund.
This year we’re bringing some of our most popular simulators to DevLearn for everyone on the expo floor to try out.
- Go head-to-head against a friend while you operate an aircraft deicing training simulator during a virtual snowstorm.
- Try your hand at a mining shovel operator training simulator and to see how quickly and safely you can move materials.
- Play HazOps, an industrial safety training game that puts your knowledge of hazards and the necessary safety precautions used to avoid them to the test.
