Geospatial Information Publications Join Forces to Address the Growth of Location-based Technology in Business Applications
In 2013, Directions Magazine will collaborate with MundoGEO, the largest media and communications company in geospatial technology in Latin America, to offer the Location Intelligence Brazil Conference, which will be held concurrently with the MundoGEO#Connect Conference in Sao Paulo.
MundoGEO#Connect will be held June 18-20, 2013; the Location Intelligence (LI) Brazil conference will be held on June 19th as a single-track event.
LI Brazil will focus on the applications of geospatial technology for the business community of Brazil, one of the fastest growing markets for location-based information.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for both organizations to offer an educational forum that addresses the applications of location technology in enterprise computing and business intelligence,” said Joe Francica, editor in chief of Directions Magazine.
“We are excited to broaden the scope of MundoGEO#Connect to offer more information to the business community of Latin America and the great potential for geospatial technology for industries such as retail, banking and insurance,” said Emerson Granemann, director and publisher of MundoGEO.
Attendees may attend either event on its own, or both together. Held in an exclusive venue in the Centro de Convenções Frei Caneca, a thriving business district, LI Brazil will include topics of value to senior management, C-level directors, as well as GIS analysts.
