Topcon Technology Roadshow 'rolls' out across North America
LIVERMORE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announces the Topcon Technology
Roadshow 2014, launching in April. This 'hands-on' educational program
focused on advanced positioning technologies will feature a 5,000
square-foot mobile classroom/theater housed in a custom-designed
The Technology Roadshow will cover North America, traveling more than
23,000 miles in six months. Each of the currently scheduled 23 stops for
the free educational program - beginning April 10 in Pleasanton, Calif.,
and ending in October at Riverside, Calif. - will include multiple
sessions over two days to allow maximum participation and scheduling
convenience for attendees.
The events will focus on technology trends in the construction,
surveying and GIS, engineering and architecture/engineering/contractor
Mark Contino, Topcon vice president of global marketing, said, "With
technology advancing so rapidly, many of our customers are telling us
that it is difficult for them to keep up. The Technology Roadshow is a
fresh 'we'll-bring-the-technology-to-you' concept that will provide an
educational experience to construction and surveying professionals who
want to learn about these exiting new solutions first hand, so they can
determine the best fit for their business. Instead of flying half way
across the country to attend a trade show or conference, we're excited
for this opportunity to bring tomorrow's positioning technology to the
construction, engineering and surveying 'backbone' of Noth America - on
their timetable, close to home, on a one-on-one basis.
"The focus of this unique learning event will demonstrate how the entire
breadth of Topcon solutions works seamlessly together," Contino said.
"The real beauty is we're bringing it directly to decision makers and
end-users, allowing every company - big or small - the opportunity to
see first-hand how new solutions and technologies can help them to
become more productive and profitable.
"We believe this rolling 'user conference' is a proactive way to help
make sure the opportunity to learn about new technology is available to
anyone who wants to learn."
Topcon industry and application professionals will staff the traveling
unit. Topcon dealer personnel from the local area are tour sponsors and
will assist them at each stop.
