KeyShot World Tours the USWe took KeyShot World on tour around the US this year, making stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and New York City. We heard from KeyShot experts at notable companies like Speedo, Razor, Samsung and Logitech, all using KeyShot to do amazing things for internal teams and external advertising. In San Francisco we were joined by Hollywood designer Dan Simon, whose 3D work has been featured in Top Gun: Maverick, Tron: Legacy or Captain America. See Dan at our event here.

A Win for the KeyShot Luminaries Community
When we launched the new KeyShot online community, KeyShot Luminaries, in 2022 we hoped to provide a version of the original forum but on steroids, adding in challenges, prizes and more. Since then, Luminaries has turned into THE bustling, instructional and entertaining place to be for all things KeyShot. So we were thrilled when KeyShot Community Manager Arlene Covarrubias, the person keeping Luminaries running, was honored with the 2023 Influitive BAMMIE Award for Program Manager of the Year. She faced steep competition from other managers at global tech companies.
