LIVERMORE, Calif. -- March 10, 2014

Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announces the Topcon Technology Roadshow
2014, launching in April. This ‘hands-on’ educational program focused on
advanced positioning technologies will feature a 5,000 square-foot mobile
classroom/theater housed in a custom-designed 18-wheeler.

The Technology Roadshow will cover North America, traveling more than 23,000
miles in six months. Each of the currently scheduled 23 stops for the free
educational program – beginning April 10 in Pleasanton, Calif., and ending in
October at Riverside, Calif. – will include multiple sessions over two days to
allow maximum participation and scheduling convenience for attendees.

The events will focus on technology trends in the construction, surveying and
GIS, engineering and architecture/engineering/contractor (AEC) professions.

Mark Contino, Topcon vice president of global marketing, said, “With
technology advancing so rapidly, many of our customers are telling us that it
is difficult for them to keep up. The Technology Roadshow is a fresh
‘we’ll-bring-the-technology-to-you’ concept that will provide an educational
experience to construction and surveying professionals who want to learn about
these exiting new solutions first hand, so they can determine the best fit for
their business. Instead of flying half way across the country to attend a
trade show or conference, we’re excited for this opportunity to bring
tomorrow’s positioning technology to the construction, engineering and
surveying ‘backbone’ of North America — on their timetable, close to home, on
a one-on-one basis.

“The focus of this unique learning event will demonstrate how the entire
breadth of Topcon solutions works seamlessly together,” Contino said. “The
real beauty is we’re bringing it directly to decision makers and end-users,
allowing every company — big or small — the opportunity to see first-hand how
new solutions and technologies can help them to become more productive and

“We believe this rolling ‘user conference’ is a proactive way to help make
sure the opportunity to learn about new technology is available to anyone who
wants to learn.”

Topcon industry and application professionals will staff the traveling unit.
Topcon dealer personnel from the local area are tour sponsors and will assist
them at each stop.
