-GEO Business – the highly-anticipated NEW geospatial event to be held in London from 28th – 29th May 2014 has kicked off its visitor marketing campaign with a bang, by promoting an incredible: 76 live workshop sessions, an exhibition with over 80+ international companies, more than 110 abstracts received in response to the call for papers and a Gala Dinner that is already nearly sold out.

 

Versha Carter, Group Exhibition Director commented “We have had a phenomenal response considering that the event was launched just over four months ago.  The UK geospatial industry has been extremely supportive, but it doesn’t just stop there, the interest has gone global with exhibitors and workshops sessions being hosted from companies coming in from around the world.”

More than 76 commercial workshop sessions will be hosted over two days highlighting a range of technologies and solutions including BIM, UAVs, laser scanning, satellite mapping, GIS software, rugged mobile computing, data capture, GNSS, airborne survey, bathymetric survey amongst others.  The workshop sessions that are held alongside the exhibition are free to attend.  The full programme is available online at http://GeoBusinessShow.com/wp-content/uploads/GEO_Business2014_Workshop_Prog.pdf

It’s not just the workshops that will be of interest to potential visitors, the exhibition has already attracted more than 80 international companies and is over 75% sold out.  The latest exhibitors to confirm their presence are GIS247, Geosolutions SAS, Fugro, Intetics, Altus Positioning Systems, iXBlue and Storm GeoRiver.  http://GeoBusinessShow.com/exhibition/exhibitors/


The full conference programme is due to be announced shortly and following a staggering response to the Call for Papers (over 110 abstracts received), that too looks set to deliver another hard hitting reason to attend GEO Business in May.  Papers will focus on the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry with some very influential and captivating individuals expected to present.  The full programme will be in place by 1st March 2014.  http://GeoBusinessShow.com/conference/conferencetopics/


Added to what will already be an extremely busy week – social events are also plannedspecifically to encourage those ‘out of hours’ meetings which are so important to the geospatial community.  An informal get together at the Welcome Reception on the eve of the show is open to all GEO Business registered visitors and exhibitors and is FREE to attend.  Then on the opening night of the show, the highly anticipated and long awaited Gala Dinner will be taking place at the Pullman Hotel in Kings Cross.  Tickets for this event are nearly sold out.  http://GeoBusinessShow.com/social/


Visitor registration now open and a ‘who’s who’ of big name buyers from across the sector have been quick to signal their intention to attend. If you have an interest in gathering, storing, processing and/or delivery of geospatial information then GEO Business will definitely be of interest.  To register FREE of charge for the exhibition and workshops visit http://GeoBusinessShow.com/registration/

Diversified Business Communications UK Ltd is the UK division on an international media company with a successful portfolio of sector leading exhibitions, conferences, publications and websites. Industry events with relevance to the geospatial marketplace

include the International and European LiDAR Mapping Forums, the SPAR Point Group 3D Imaging events and the Ocean Business

event in Southampton. www.divcom.co.uk


GEO Business 2014 is the brand new geospatial event for everyone involved in the gathering storing, processing and delivering of geospatial information. Organised in collaboration with The Survey Association (TSA), The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) and The Association for Geographic Information (AGI).

The Survey Association, known generally as TSA, is the trade body for commercial survey companies in the UK. The association was formed in 1979 to give a focus for private sector businesses in land and hydrographic survey. It is important to realise, however, that it is not a regulatory body. The role of TSA is to promote best practice amongst its members, provide a forum for members for

discussion, debate and continuing professional development and, to the wider audience such as engineers and architects, provide

guidance on new methods and techniques and a list of suitably qualified and experienced companies. www.tsa-uk.org.uk/


RICS - the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - was created in 1868 in the United Kingdom. It received a royal charter in 1881.

Their members are known as chartered surveyors, and are recognised by the designation after their name - FRICS (for Fellow of RICS) or MRICS (for Member of RICS). Today we are a global property professional body which aims to: Regulate and promote the

profession; maintain the highest educational and professional standards; protect clients and consumers through a strict code of ethics; provide impartial advice, analysis and guidance. www.rics.org


The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) is an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation,

education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. ICES is now recognised as the leading chartered professional

body for civil engineering surveyors. They have introduced relevant and meaningful competencies for geospatial engineers and

commercial managers which make a difference. www.cices.org

The Association for Geographic Information (AGI) exists to represent the interests of the UK's GI industry; a wide-ranging group of public and private sector organisations, suppliers of GI software, hardware, data and services, consultants, academics and interested individuals. The AGI, by way of its unique membership forum, brings together this previously disparate GI community to share ideas on best practice, experience and innovation, and offers access to unparalleled networking opportunities with significant business benefits. As such it acts on behalf of the community as whole. Since its formal inception in 1989, it has built up a significant membership base and established itself as the respected voice in GI and is the membership body for everyone with an interest or involvement with GI.  http://www.agi.org.uk

Data Mashups can Help Answer the World’s Biggest Questions

As the world wakes up to the power of data, we need to start working out how to join up all this information. We need to turn it into meaningful findings that will help us to make changes to the way we live. A new technique is emerging as part of this quest – the data mashup. This approach to linking data could help us shed light on phenomena such as the health impacts of climate change....
