Here’s a sample of what attendees had to say: “The 2011 Geosystems/Hexagon Conference in Orlando Florida was an amazing conference. The sheer size and number of attendees was overwhelming and the professional content covered in all tracks and presentations was top notch. Looking forward to participate and attend next year’s conference.” – Christopher M. Zmijewski Principal, Stantec Consulting “I found the event very exciting and well planned … The training classes, free learning sessions, and the social network-ing were all outstanding. As was the venue and the interaction with the other disciplines. Great work and great way for Leica to show their appreciation to their clients. I am looking forward to next year.” – Joe Romano, Sr. Associate, Langan Engineering & Environmental Services “… a wonderful conference. I have never been to a conference where everything was taken care of with such detail as this one. The networking and listening to other users has given me ideas about how we can grow …” – Alfie Cross, Principal, Carnahan, Proctor and Cross “My conference experience was incred-ible. I have never been a part of some-thing like this where everyone was so helpful and willing to share information. All of the Leica staff treated me incred-ibly well all the way to Ken at the top. They made sure I got the information I came looking for and got me to the peo-ple I needed to speak with. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would love to be able to do it again.” – Bob Patterson, TFC Canopy For more customer raves, please visit www.youtube.com/leicageo Register for Hexagon 2012 Before April 16th and Save $600 Reserve your spot and learn how you can begin thinking forward today!
