Work Hard, Play Hard at the 2018 Carlson Go West User Conference

Maysville, Kentucky, U.S.A. (January 2017) Carlson Software will host its biannual Go West User Conference on April 9 through 11 at the Mission Valley Crowne Plaza in San Diego, California. The 2018 conference will offer a wide spectrum of courses covering fundamentals, new Carlson products, new features, and everything in between.

"As we put courses together for the 2018 User Conference, we pored over your feedback from past conferences. You wanted more options. We have added courses on CAD basics and have broadened the overall offerings to give you more and better choices, said host director Shane Gardner. "It was also clear that you wanted to know exactly what was going to be covered, at what level and with what solutions. Our course descriptions are structured to help you have all the blanks filled in. While we don’t expect to match each individual’s educational needs perfectly, we are striving to give enough options at enough levels to make sure you get your money’s worth."

Attendees can expect an opening night brewery social, extensive training on new software and hardware, guest speakers within the industry, a keynote, and much more. The conference will feature new courses like Photo Based Mapping with Carlson PhotoCapture where Carlson users can preview new products while several courses will cover the foundational Carlson products, new features within, and user functionality.

Registrants are able to select the courses theyd like to attend within the registration process. Sessions will not be separated into tracks so that attendees can freely explore different fields that might interest them. Fields include data collection/mobile, land surveying, civil engineering, construction, GIS, mining, machine control, hardware, and more. Carlson will provide Certificates of Completion for each class attended, which can be presented to state organizations for CEUs and PDHs (attendees are encouraged to check with his or her state organization to determine its CEU and/or PDH acceptance/regulations). Spanish courses will be offered throughout the conference.
