More than 150 Leica Geosystems dealers, representatives, sales management and technical support personnel took part in a spectacular national sales conference at Stone Mountain, Georgia, February 7-10, to share in the launch of the new System 1200 product line for the Americas.
The theme of the conference was "Working Together," reflecting the unique selling proposition of the System 1200, which is a truly integrated survey system in which total stations and GPS receivers work together with a common user interface, database, applications and accessories.
