SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2016—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the kickoff of its 2016 Trimble MEP Roadshow Series in Vancouver, B.C. on March 3. The roadshows will continue across North America stopping in nearly 30 cities.
The complimentary program features live demonstrations and presentations focused on productivity solutions for Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) contractors and engineers. This year’s roadshows offer three program options for the MEP contractor:
Test Drive Trimble: This new event will provide an opportunity for MEP contractors to see the latest Trimble solutions in action. From estimating and detailing solutions to 3D laser scanning and layout technologies, contractors can gain hands-on experience as they rotate through small group stations focused on "test driving" the latest advancements for MEP contractors.
Intro to Layout & 3D Laser Scanning: These workshops are focused on providing an opportunity for participants to learn first-hand from the Trimble field experts, outside of the normal “classroom” setting. This workshop will bring together MEP contractors to discuss two of the cutting-edge technologies in the construction industry: 3D laser scanning and field layout technologies for MEP components.
Trimble Advanced Layout Methods: These sessions are focused on providing participants with an opportunity to learn first-hand from Trimble field experts, and provide attendees with the skills to immediately take back to the jobsite. This workshop is designed for contractors who have experience with field layout technologies and are looking for additional insights to enable increased productivity in the field or better prep data for field point layout.
“We are excited to kick off our 2016 roadshow series. This year’s roadshows are more ambitious than ever before—we are bringing Trimble technology to more locations with an expanded and convenient schedule,” said Darcy Shunk, Americas sales manager for Trimble’s MEP Division.
