Asia-Pacific Agents Meeting


On April 28th-30th, 2009 GEOKON held its first Asia-Pacific Agents/Representatives meeting in Singapore. Nearly 30 agents attended from 12 countries for the 3-day event.

The agenda and format, which were similar to the successful European Agents meeting held in Iceland in 2008, included:

  • A presentation and demonstration of recent developments at GEOKON
  • A demonstration and training in the use of Vista’s VDV Data Visualization Software
  • Case history presentations by each agent describing a project which used GEOKON instrumentation, or a related aspect of their business
  • An informal round table discussion to exchange ideas and information
  • A visit to a large excavation site for the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) Circle Line project

The meeting was coordinated by GEOKON and Tritech, Ltd. (in Singapore). Dr. C. K. Loh provided a dynamic opening presentation on excavation and tunneling works in Singapore. Dr. Loh also hosted a delicious dinner on the waterfront, and his skilled staff greatly assisted with all meeting and site visit logistics.

In addition, there were guest presentations by IDS Australasia, makers of Microwave Interferometers, a FBG Fiber-Optic sensor presentation by Dr. Lu of GEOKON Beijing and a report on monitoring the Zermanice Dam from Ludek Novosad of G4C, GEOKON’s agent in Czech Republic, who was unable to attend last year’s European meeting.

The event concluded with a multi-course formal dinner at Club Chinois, a well-known Chinese restaurant.

Similar meetings for both our Asia-Pacific and European Agents will be held in the future.
