DOHA, UAE: Trimble Express, a show on surveying technology, was held in Doha recently to introduce high-technology land surveying products. This is the first time that this event, normally held in Europe, was organised in Middle East.
The event attracted over 100 representatives from different market segments like the Public Works Authority (Ashghal), Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa), Urban Planning and Development Authority (UPDA), government bodies and major construction firms in Qatar. Besides, product managers from New Zealand, Sweden, Germany and Australia had been flown in especially for the event.
Trimble Segment Manager, Survey Division for the Middle East, Africa and India, Dennis Belgrado said: “The objective of this seminar is to promote the current Trimble portfolio including land survey using optical technology as well as satellite survey.” He added that participants at the seminar had the opportunity to learn more about new surveying technologies using GPS/GNSS, total stations and 3D scanning that will help to streamline their workflow and significantly increase productivity.
The event was organised in collaboration with BCL, Dubai-based Trimble dealer and BCL’s Doha partner Teyseer Industrial Supplies and Services (Tissco).
