Global Conference Brings S&R Channel Partners Together for the First Time
Sensors & Robotics (S&R) held its inaugural Sales Conference on September 2 - 4, 2019 in Athens, Greece. Channel partners from all over the world were invited to join S&R product and sales managers to learn about new products, solutions and market applications, share experiences and discuss plans for 2020. Approximately 100 attendees, over 40 dealers and sales representatives from 20 different countries plus representatives from Kongsberg Maritime sister companies, came together.
The conference agenda combined technical sessions with information sessions focusing on administrative matters. The keynote address from Stene Førsund, SVP Sensors & Robotics Sales, kicked off the conference by welcoming everyone, highlighting the most recent changes within KONGSBERG and setting the stage for the presentations, networking opportunities and social activities planned for the rest of the event.
Representatives from Underwater Mapping, Positioning & Communications, GeoAcoustics, Mesotech, Contros, MARO and Seatex gave a combination of product and application presentations geared towards arming channel partners with the information needed to effectively sell KONGSBERG products and solutions all over the world.
The conference wrapped up with a gala dinner at the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, where official plaques were distributed to Kongsberg Maritime Dealers and Sales Representatives. Two awards were also handed out, Dealer of the Year was presented to Nippon Kaiyo and Sales Representative of the Year went to Geo Marine.
We thank everyone who traveled from near and far to participate in the first Sensors & Robotics Sales Conference; we look forward to hosting another successful event in Buenos Aires in 2021!
