Topcon Technology Roadshow ‘Kicks Off’ North American Tour

Livermore, Calif., – April 1, 2014 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announces the kickoff of the 2014 Topcon Technology Roadshow. On Wednesday, April 9, and Thursday, April 10, the event and educational sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and continue until 4:30 p.m. at the Topcon Solutions Center in Pleasanton, Calif. From there, the truck rolls out to its next of 23 scheduled stops.
In a custom-designed 18-wheeler, the Topcon Technology Roadshow is traveling more than 23,000 miles across North America. The 5,000 square foot mobile classroom/theater features the latest technology trends in the construction, surveying and GIS, and architecture/engineering/contractor (AEC) professions.
Attendees can customize the experience to suit their schedule. Mark Contino, Topcon vice president of global marketing said, “The Technology Roadshow is a fresh ‘we’ll bring-it-to-you’ concept that allows customers to keep up with rapid industry changes in a dynamic and hands-on environment. With the show practically at the attendees’ doorstep, it’s convenient to see first-hand how new solutions and technologies can help their businesses become more productive and profitable.”
TPS is making the exhibit interactive for everyone with the “Spot the truck and win!” social media contest. “Anyone can post a picture of the Topcon Technology Truck to their Twitter or Instagram page with the hashtag #TTR14 for a chance to win a $50 gift card,” said Contino. “It’s a fun way to get involved and connect with the show during its stop in your community.” For more information and complete rules on this contest visit the program website at
“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,” said Contino.
