-We are happy to announce that booking for GeoCom ’14 ‘The Changing Face of Geo’ is now open. The conference will take place between the 11th and 13th of November at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Warwick and delegates are encouraged to book early to take advantage of early bird rates.
GeoCom ’14 is the final event and centrepiece of the Geo: The Big 5 series. It will be a two day multi stream conference that brings together the discussions from the other Big 5 events and sets the agenda for geospatial in 2015 and beyond.
GeoCom ’14 keeps the favoured residential format of the previous AGI GeoCommunity conferences, taking place over two full days of multi stream content.
Delivering quality content to the delegates is the key mission of GeoCom ’14 with content and speakers that will be relevant across verticals and disciplines.
Previously the annual conference stood alone in calendar but this year it will serve as the culmination of a focused event series. This will allow a year long debate on ‘the changing face of geo’ before GeoCom pulls all the conversations together.
This year GeoCom will end with the new AGI Awards for Geospatial Excellence, a chance to celebrate achievement and innovation in the industry.
About Geo: The Big 5
Geo: The Big 5 is a series of national events that will tackle the big issues in GeoSpatial in 2014:
· Future Cities
· Open Geospatial
· Big Data
· BIM and Asset Management
A wide range of challenges and opportunities are facing the GeoSpatial sector resulting from changing markets, a shifting policy landscape and of course new technologies and expectations. Many of these will affect most if not all of the GeoSpatial sphere and this is where Geo: The Big 5 is different. Other geo events focus on particular areas of the industry or certain technologies, platforms and techniques. Geo: The Big 5 takes a more holistic approach that sweeps across the breadth of the industry. The series will culminate in a two day conference ‘GeoCom: The Changing Face of Geo’ which will pull bring together the discussions for the rest of the Big 5 and set the agenda for Geo going in to 2015 and beyond.
