Intergeo 2018 to focus on geoinformation, digitalization

March 22, 2018  - By

The theme for this year’s Intergeo, taking place Oct. 16-18 in Frankfurt, Germany, is “Geoinformation — The DNA of digitalization.”

According to event organizers, this year’s event will focus on the digital transformation of business and society. The event, hosted by the German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management (DVW), will contextualize key developments and scenarios for a geoinformation-based digital future.

“Over the course of three days, the spotlight will be placed on the products, solutions, know-how, innovations and visions behind geoinformation in the era of digitalization,” said Professor Hansjörg Kutterer, president of DVW. “And we confidently label geoinformation the DNA of digitalization. After all, in the same way as humans are shaped by their genes, geoinformation is steering the digital revolution.”

Intergeo 2018 will feature 130 speakers, with each day of the show beginning with keynote speeches. Among the keynote speakers are Kutterer; Professor Jürgen Döldner from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany; and Ron Bisio from Trimble.

In addition, more than 600 companies will be exhibiting at the show.
