The organisers of the UK’s largest geospatial event, GEO Business 2019, have announced a call for abstracts for their seminar programme to be held at the Business Design Centre in London, UK from 21 - 22 May 2019.
The cutting edge seminars, attracted an incredible 2602 attendees from 53 countries at its launch in 2018 and covered a variety of topics demonstrating the remarkable impact geospatial technologies and solutions are having on our global environment.
The GEO Business team are looking for ground-breaking and stimulating abstracts that highlight the value and impact that geospatial data is having on delivering services and solutions to the world. The seminar programme will continue to run alongside the well-established commercial workshop programme which is hosted by exhibitors demonstrating their latest products and services and the strategic conference which will highlight how geospatial is at the heart of policy supporting the UK’s future economic growth.
Over the two day event, expert presenters will explore how geospatial technology has empowered people and projects to grow and evolve causing a huge upsurge in efficiency; as well as the pioneering opportunities the continued growth of this industry will bring.
Caroline Hobden, the GEO Business Event Director, said of the programme (that is due to be launched in March 2019), “We were absolutely thrilled with the feedback received following the launch of the GEO Business seminar programme at the last event. These sessions allowed us to work closely with key presenters to fully explore the use of geospatial across key industry sectors utilising various technology applications. Delegates came away feeling ‘fully informed’ and ‘inspired by cutting edge solutions’. With that momentum in mind, we are excited to be launching the 2019 Call for Papers and welcome parties from across the globe to send us their abstracts for consideration and possible inclusion in the popular programme.”
