Planning an event like HxGN LIVE is no easy feat. There are speakers to schedule, trainings to plan, space to set up, and the list goes on.
When it comes to the details, though, the Geosystems Surveying & Infrastructure sub-track is in good hands. Two Leica Geosystems professionals are well underway in developing this year’s sub-track that covers the spectrum of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Presenting the pros
We sat down with these masterminds for a behind-the-scenes look at what attendees registering in the Surveying & Infrastructure sub-track could expect, and here’s the inside scoop.
Bettina Dense, senior applications engineer with the Geomatics Division, has been with the company for 14 years. For this year’s international conference and exhibition, she is responsible for coordinating the sub-track speakers. In her first year as a sub-track owner, Dense said she is “very excited about all the great speakers we have coming. Registrants in the Surveying & Infrastructure sub-track are in for some wonderful professional development opportunities.”
Craig Hill, vice-president of marketing and services with the Geomatics Division, is celebrating his 20th year with Leica Geosystems. In his third year as Surveying & Infrastructure sub-track owner, Hill is in charge of securing and scheduling speakers. “I’m expecting this year’s conference to be the best yet,” said Hill. “With the caliber of speakers Bettina (Dense) and I are bringing in, attendees are going to walk away with actionable items that can put directly to work for their businesses and see results.”
