The methods Sonya will discuss have been tested throughout a number of industries: oil and gas, manufacturing, retail, residential construction and telecommunications, and she will share specific examples of how 3D photogrammetry can be leveraged to create simulations, accurate dimensions, develop engineering documentation and assist with real time data collection. Key takeaways include:

Bringing Together The Best In Service

Word On The Street

"It’s a good balance between general sessions, round tables and one-to-one meetings. I’ll follow-up with the solutions providers I met and very much enjoyed the presentations during the general sessions. This is what I need to improve my own operations. Great job!"

Didier Teiller
SVP, Customer Care

“I like the small group format, it allow one-on-ones to discuss challenges, opportunities and strategies. The 30 minute vendor meetings are very effective in determining next step, or not.”

Brian Craft
Director, National Service
 ALIXA RX

"The event was really designed around the attendees with plenty of time for networking, great presentations, and roundtable discussions. Attendees could selectively meet 1-on-1 with vendors in a low-pressure setting. My biggest take-aways were based on insights gained from other industry peers, which provided great value!”
