Topcon Technology Roadshow ‘rolls’ out across North America

LIVERMORE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 10, 2014 — 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 18-wheeler.

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 (AEC) professions.

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 North 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.
