The fifth instalment of GEO Business that took place in London last week, will be remembered as the busiest show to date. The two day show provided a veritable feast of strategy combined with technology to an incredible 2602 attendees from 53 countries who flocked into the show to discover for themselves the vast range of technologies and services now available to them in this burgeoning sector. This rise in numbers equates to an amazing 9% increase in visitors since the last show and a 61% increase since the show was launched in 2014.
The exhibition was bustling from the minute the doors opened until the close of show announcement on the second day proving that GEO Business is THE place to do business. The likes of Survey Solutions Scotland, Ordnance Survey, Topcon, GAP Group, Bentley Systems, Trimble, Viametris, Phoenix, CHC Navigation and Leica Geosystems (to name but a few) were amongst the 200 exhibitor strong exhibition. Once again exhibitors took advantage of hosting commercial workshop sessions, many of which experienced standing room only in each of the allotted lecture theatres.
Commenting on the event’s success, Event Director Caroline Hobden said, “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s event. This is the fifth year of growth for GEO Business and the greatest yet in attracting more visitors from a diverse range of industries, professional disciplines and specialists. While there was plenty for the tech geeks and those wanting to know from the researchers and academics what the next disruptive technologies will be, the event showcased very solid opportunities for end users of practical geospatial technologies where they could see for themselves the current ‘state of the art’. For those active in this sector it has become an unmissable annual date on the calendar.”
GEO Business 2019 will return to the Business Design Centre in London from 21-22 May 2019.
