Troy, Mich (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Site prep contractors face a competitive environment where the efficient use of construction technology can offer many advantages. Is it time to invest now? What options are available? What’s next? Site Prep magazine is presenting a two-day educational conference to help its readers and industry professionals learn about best practices for implementing new technology in the field. Site Prep Tech will be held in Atlanta on December 3-4 at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel.
“With education and shared experience, we know the challenges to implementing new site prep technology can be overcome,” said Site Prep editor Mike Anderson. “For Site Prep Tech, we’ve recruited speakers who are knowledgeable and also passionate about sharing their jobsite experience.”
Attendees will have a chance to learn first-hand from industry experts, panel discussions, peers, demonstrations, and exhibits at the conference.
Site Prep Tech is the only construction technology conference exclusively focused on site prep work. Based on feedback from last year’s conference, the 2014 conference is expanding to include 18 educational sessions with two tracks—Machine Control and Jobsite Management. More networking hours are added to the schedule so contractors can connect with their peers as well as representatives from sponsoring partners. An interactive learning environment is supported throughout the two-day conference.
Educational sessions will cover the telematics new data standard, the human side of machine control, data prep, jobsite connectivity, excavator machine control, small fleet maintenance and equipment health, estimating and bidding, intelligent jobsites, office and field mobile apps, intelligent compaction, and the legal challenges of vehicle telematics. Hands-on operating time hosted by Komatsu America for end-users will provide an experience with the latest advances in machine control. A complete agenda and speaker bios are available online at http://www.sitepreptech.com.
Site Prep Tech is supported by education partner Trimble, cornerstone partner Komatsu America, operation automation partner Topcon, technology partner Leica Geosystems, and communications partner Content For Biz; sponsorship opportunities are still available.
The Site Prep Tech conference provides a neutral learning environment where contractors, engineers, and other construction professionals can connect their interests about new technology. Case studies, panel discussions, and demonstrations will help site prep contractors shorten their learning curve, increase their productivity, and improve profits.
The cost to attend the conference is $445 if registering before Oct. 31 ($545 after that date). To register or for more information, visit http://www.sitepreptech.com. To learn about exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities, call Michelle Lorusso at 770-932-0041.
