GEO Business is shaping up to be an important show in the geospatial calendar, with 3,000 international visitors expected to attend. Registration is now open and visitors are set to descend upon the Business Design Centre in London May 24-25 to take part in the showcase for the ever-changing geospatial industry.

This year’s conference is features prominent speakers within the geospatial hemisphere, and the workshop program is set to be the most technically and commercially relevant yet.

From its beginnings as a UK-centric show, GEO Business has won the support of an international audience. For the first time since its launch show, the event will be held outside of UK and international holiday periods, which has been welcomed by both exhibitors and visitors.

“This event is very much being driven by industry. We are out there listening and being guided by the trade associations, societies, exhibitors and visitors and are working tirelessly to develop an event where there is a real sense of ownership within the community,” said Event Director Caroline Hobden. “The support we’ve had, and continue to have, has been phenomenal and it’s this level of involvement that makes this show such a success. Expectations are high for 2016 and we are looking forward to delivering the best show yet!”

The program includes a two-day conference featuring presentations from leading geospatial experts that will focus on geospatial economic efficiency, infrastructure, innovation and sustainability.

The exhibition is free to attend and visitors will be surrounded by products and services from approximately 200 multinational companies, including Leica Geosystems, Topcon, Trimble and Microsoft / Vexcel Imaging and smaller niche service companies. The line-up of exhibitor includes for the first time Land Registry, Korec and Landmark. The exhibition will also feature a brand new GIS Zone and UAV Zone.

GEO Business 2016 will also run a series of free-to-attend commercial workshops, where exhibiting companies can provide hands-on experiences into the features and benefits of their products and services.

GEO Business also will be hosting a Gala Dinner.

Register before April 25 for Early Bird Rates.
