September 3, 2009 -- COLUMBUS, OH. -- Transmap, a leading provider of roadway inventory, infrastructure management and GIS integration, is pleased to announce that for a third year, GIS software company ESRI has invited it to showcase its technology solution at the American Public Works Association’s World Congress in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus is home to Transmap with our corporate headquarters located less than two miles from the convention center.
From September 13-16, Transmap will be exhibiting its innovative roadway asset management solutions alongside ESRI in the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Swarming through the more than 100,000 square feet of exhibit space will be more than 6,000+ public works professionals and 400 exhibitors. The annual congress, which has been offered for more than 100 years, is the largest event of its kind devoted solely to the needs of public works professionals.
“We’re honored that ESRI has invited us to exhibit with them at the APWA Congress for a third time,” said Howard Luxhoj, PE and president of Transmap. “They are very good partners with and for us. There’s no one better when it comes to increasing the buzz about public works asset management and GIS.”
“Each year I get excited around the APWA conference and exposition because it is one of the largest expositions dedicated to Public Works and ESRI again in 2009 will have the largest GIS Pavilion on the exhibition floor. It is a one-stop showcase to get all of you GIS related questions answered. Ten of our valued business partners, including Transmap, will be demonstrating their applications and solutions through- out the course of the week and that always stimulates thought provoking discussions.” said Chuck Cmeyla, ESRI Public Works Industry Manager.
