“The industry showcases everything from conventional surveying to the entire process chain all the way to visualisation, and software solutions that are also integrated into other industries,” says Professor Hansjörg Kutterer, President of INTERGEO’s patron, the DVW.
This year, INTERGEO is once again offering tangible trends and live solutions. For three days, everything in the trade fair halls, the conference, the forum areas in the INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS and SMART CITY SOLUTIONS themed platforms will revolve around international communication relating to the wide world of geo-IT solutions. Industry, science, associations – all the big names are there, and with their high-tech portfolio, they make INTERGEO the world’s leading trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management.
Geo-IT will transform industries
What can you expect? A whole universe of geo-IT trends. Experts and companies will provide information about trends and solutions relating to “big data”, “smart data” and the personalised version “personal data”. Augmented and virtual reality are starting to weave their way into the process chain. “I would go as far as to say that the results will bring many sectors forward in totally new ways,” says Kutterer. In the German Cartography Conference, smart cartography will showcase the interlinking of surveying, photogrammetry and cartography. The areas of application for the European COPERNICUS satellite programme continue to be exciting. These now go far beyond environmental data and also provide valuable political stimuli within the EU.
The last few years have also seen INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS – an integral part of INTERGEO – develop into the largest drone trade fair in Europe. “And we’ve only just started,” says Christoph Hinte, CEO of organiser Hinte GmbH. Other hot topics include “smart cities” or the “digital city”, and building information modeling (BIM), which will both have an equally lasting impact on the construction and geo-IT sectors in the next few years.
Looking at a career in geo-IT?
With its comprehensive approach to showcasing these future topics, INTERGEO has also developed into a lively platform for careers and recruiting. “Many employers meet their new employees during these three days,” says Hinte. This applies to both national companies and international corporations. With the constant internationalization of the markets, INTERGEO’s global profile is also increasing. “That doesn’t mean we will forget our roots,” adds Hinte, because the main base continues to be in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, even though growth is strongly influenced by international factors.
Visitors from Germany and beyond are drawn to INTERGEO by its wealth of content above all else. The conference continues to provide long-term stimuli, and information formats such as forums appeal to new audiences. The reputation of the conference trade fair is also boosted by year-round multi-media communications offerings such as INTERGEO TV. The icing on the cake of this year’s content is having the German capital of Berlin as its venue.
There is a lot to look forward to in the three days of the INTERGEO 2017 trade fair and conference from 26 to 28 September 2017 in Berlin.
