April 7, 2015 — In the countdown to GEO Business 2015, which takes place at the Business Design Centre in London from 27-28 May 2015, the organisers are excited to announce that the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) will be providing valuable industry input as an official event supporter to the annual GEO Business show.
The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is the UK's learned society and professional body for geography, with 16,500 members and programmes that reach millions of people each year. Caroline Hobden, Event Director for GEO Business, comments, “We are thrilled to have the official support of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). They are global leaders in advancing geography and one of the most highly regarded bodies there is.”
With event collaborators and supporters from key industry bodies across the geospatial industry, GEO Business 2015 has representation from a wide cross-section of the industry. Event collaborators include the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES), The Survey Association (TSA) and the Association for Geographic Information (AGI) , The Hydrographic Society, the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc), the Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (ARPAS-UK), The British Cartographic Society, British Association of Remote Sensing Companies (BARSC) and the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG).
Such broad representation from the geospatial community is essential for the UK's biggest geospatial event, which has grown by 64% since the launch event in 2014. The GEO Business international exhibition will be nearly 500m2 bigger than 2014 accompanied by over 140 free workshop sessions where exhibitors will demonstrate ground-breaking new products and services – a 34% increase on the preview show. Visitor turnout is also expected to increase dramatically for GEO Business 2015 with visitor registration for the May show already tracking at a remarkable 84% ahead of last year's event.
Running alongside the show will be a two day conference, enabling delegates to exchange information about the latest geospatial technologies and services across the globe (full details at: http://geobusinessshow.com/conference/conference-programme).
There will also be a vibrant social programme to maximise possibilities for informal networking, including a gala dinner that was a sell-out at the 2014 show.
Visitors to GEO Business 2015 have the unique opportunity to attend more than 140 workshops hosted by leading geospatial manufacturers, operators and services providers and enable attendees to make comparisons and source new suppliers (full details at http://geobusinessshow.com/workshops/).
