CEO Rob Painter will kick off the conference with an overview of how Trimble's Connect and Scale strategy enables customers to do their work faster, better, safer, cheaper and greener. Painter will be joined on the main stage by Steve Wozniak, who exemplifies Trimble's passion for innovation and technology.
