Executive roundtable brings together finance and insurance executives to discuss importance of location in business on January 29, 2013

MARKHAM, ONTARIO-- DMTI Spatial Inc. (DMTI), Canada's leading provider of Location Intelligence solutions, today announced its next Strategic Insight Session on Location Economics will take place at Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner Museum on January 29, 2013. This exclusive roundtable event will bring together executives from Canada's top finance and insurance companies to discuss the importance of location within their organizations. The event will be co-hosted by John Pickett, Principal and VP of The IT Media Group, Asif Khan, President of The Location Based Marketing Association (LBMA) and John Fisher, Chairman and CEO of DMTI.

Building on the success of the first event held in November, 2012, DMTI, The LBMA and The IT Media Group are expanding the event to provide more participants the opportunity to discuss the importance of Location Economics and how location-based information can help their organizations better identify risk and opportunity. The event held in November brought together executives from companies such as Canada Guaranty, Carson Dunlop, Centract and Equifax. A video of the first event showcasing discussions between some of the financial service industry's top executives can be found at www.dmtispatial.com or http://youtu.be/sFvTpoaK8Ck.

According to Asif Khan, "Information is power, and effectively that's what data is now. The difference is what's changed over the last couple of years, and that's location."

"Business people are really starting to recognize how Location Economics can add value to existing data to mitigate risk, identify opportunities and improve decision-making in so many areas," said John Pickett. "Participants in our first session were able to identify a range of business opportunities in their own organizations and took away valuable insights that will enable them to take some practical first steps. We look forward to the next session where another group of Canada's business leaders can discuss the critical role location plays within their decision-making."
