Is your Company on the Trade Show?

Aside of the conference Hydro12, the organisation is facilitating companies to get in touch with hydrographic surveyors and related professionals, making them familiar with the recent developments in technology, software and services.  Many companies already are represented with a booth (which we have called the singlebeam package) on the trade show.
