GEO Business 2016 storming its way onto the geospatial calendar
GEO Business is shaping up to be one of the most important shows in the geospatial calendar, with 3000 international visitors expected to attend. Registrations are flooding in for what is anticipated to be the busiest show yet!
From humble beginnings as a UK centric show, GEO Business has won the support of an international audience and will cement its position as the industry’s premier event as it builds on the remarkable success of the previous two years. 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.
Event Director Caroline Hobden explained how GEO Business has stormed its way into the industry event calendar in such a short period of time, attracting so much attention and headlines along the way: “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. 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!”
Cutting Edge Conference – The programme includes a two day conference featuring presentations from leading geospatial experts that will focus on geospatial economic efficiency, infrastructure, innovation and sustainability. Following a successful Call for Papers, issued by arguably the most influential Conference Committee around, the programme will be launched at the end of February.
International Exhibition – The exhibition is FREE to attend and visitors will be surrounded by products and services from approximately 200 multinational companies all under one roof. There has never been a better opportunity to find a new supplier. The exhibition will also feature a brand new GIS Zone and UAV Zone, both of which have garnered much interest and are nearly sold out!
Associated Meetings – Focusing on the issues driving the geospatial industry forward leading organisations are hosting various associated meetings at GEO Business 2016. All associated meetings are FREE to attend.
Commercial Workshops – The show will also run a series of FREE-to-attend commercial workshops – a unique opportunity not offered by any other geospatial show. Workshop applications are flooding in from exhibiting companies wanting to give their audiences a ‘hands on’ experience into the features and benefits of their products and services.
Networking Opportunities – New for 2016 is a brand new ale trail, taste ales from across the UK as you work your away around the show floor. GEO Business will also be hosting pre-show welcome drinks the night before the show opens and the hugely popular Gala Dinner where everyone can come together, loosen their ties a little and enjoy an evening of fine wine and food. Tickets for the gala dinner are selling out quick, so act fast to secure your ticket.
Visitor numbers are expected to soar, so beat the quotes onsite and register online in advance. The exhibition and workshops are FREE to attend. There is a fee of just £30* to attend the conference.
