For those who did not attend the technical sessions the Leica Geosystems pre-conference events consisted of 2 social events. The first was Geospatial only and the second in the voluminous exhibit area was both very well attended. No real news to report, but all 3 business groups – Hexagon Metrology, Intergraph and Geosystems are well represented and ready to go.
The conference theme is centered around “Think”. The first reception was Think Progress, the second is Think Exploration and the third is Think Again. I hope we can live up to that.
Olla Rollen, CEO of Hexagon AB likes to remind us about the world we are living in. For instance the world population is growing at the rate of 1 billion people every 13 years. That translates into the need for a tremendous amount of new infrastructure, energy, resources and of course Hexagon products.
Looks like Olla is going to stress connectivity with his keynote and what he calls the Hexagon Advantage. The Twitter hash is #hex12. I will send a few thoughts later today.
