Why does Carlson sponsor AIMS Conferences? AIMS is one of the major annual events that we attend every year. As we sell mine survey products, it is focused on one of our key markets and allows us the rare opportunity to get to talk face to face to existing and new users of our technology, whilst also educating people in the industry on the capabilities and limitations of our systems.
How long have you sponsored the yearly conferences? This is our first official year as Carlson, following the acquisition of the Renishaw division in September 2017. However, previous to that we have been sponsoring the AIMS events for over 10 years and hopefully many more to come.
How has your previous sponsorship benefitted the delegates? We would hope that the delegates have benefitted from our focus on providing knowledge of our products. The delegates are highly skilled professionals, so are able to make informed decisions on what is best for their site. We see our role as assisting clients in making that decision, and the best one for them, not for us.
How has your previous sponsorship benefitted your company in spreading the word on your products and services? Having a closer relationship with our users is important, as being able to receive direct feedback is only going to help us improve. We know we are not perfect, but our goals are to continually develop and strive to maintain what our users want. This knowledge enables us to build relevant products for the market.
What does your company have to offer delegates at this year’s conference? As Carlson we can now offer full solutions in terms of mining software and survey hardware.
What is something new and exciting that you will be highlighting at the conference? This years conference will be focused on our new Gyro C-ALS system, which we will also be presenting at the conference on Thursday afternoon. The Gyro C-ALS will allow underground cavities to be surveyed more accurately, and we are excited that AIMS will be the first event where this system is officially showcased anywhere in the world.
