MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2013, Conference and Trade Fair for Geomatics and Geospatial Solutions (, has its program detailed with more than 15 activities, among forums, special events, courses and user meetings. The third edition of the event will be held in June 18 thru 20 at the Frei Caneca Convention Center, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The previous event edition had 3,350 participants from 27 countries and over 70 global brands in the fair.

The 2013 event program was created from suggestions of the geospatial community, through the evaluation of the previous editions and also a request for ideas, in which professionals in the industry sent their opinions on how to solve the key challenges of geospatial technologies in Latin America.

Among so many choices of activities, the event organization offers customized packages for participants and discounts for teachers, researchers, students, groups and subscribers of the MundoGEO magazine. “In 2013, we set a different way for the professional to register, from which you can choose only one activity or a combination among them, with special discounts. Additionally, the option to register in the forums allows the freedom to choose up to seven different topics with only one investment. All that plus the time in between intervals or the open day to visit the trade fair of products and services, which is going to hit a record of exhibition booths", explains Emerson Zanon Granemann, director and publisher of MundoGEO.
