Horn, Austria – March 14, 2012 – More than 100 participants from 17 nations came together in Orlando, Florida, February 28 through March 1 to attend RIEGL’s first International User Conference, dedicated to airborne and mobile users.
The conference took place at the Hilton Orlando and was organized and hosted by RIEGL USA. Program highlights included latest hardware and software presentations by RIEGL, as well as User, Partner, and Scientific presentations by international experts. A panel discussion titled “Surveying in the year 2020” led to a lively discussion featuring experts from Russia, Austria, Canada, and the United States.
In addition to the technical aspects of the conference, the RIEGL community was able to participate in team-building social events including a putting tournament, helicopter ride over Orlando, and the RIEGL “Awards” dinner.
User reactions were very positive throughout: “I want to give you my congratulations for the excellent organization of that event. In my many years of business I have been taken part in many users’ conferences but I have never been in one so well organized and with so many details well done. The conference was as good as the RIEGL Scanners“, reported a gentleman attending from South America. “Once more congratulations for the meeting, the more we get to know RIEGL, the more we are proud to be business partners!” another participant stated.
A video providing you with an insight of the conference will be published soon at www.youtube.com/riegllms.
Enthusiastic reactions like the above cited make RIEGL very proud and confident to begin planning for the next user conference, which is scheduled for spring 2013 to take place in Europe. The spring 2013 conference will cover all fields of applications of RIEGL scanners: airborne, mobile, terrestrial, and industrial. Details will be released in the next few months.
