April 27, 2015 — With just a month to go until GEO Business 2015, taking place at the Business Design Centre in London from 27-28 May 2015, the organisers are anticipating the biggest and most lively event yet with visitor registrations up a remarkable 50% compared to last year's show.
Caroline Hobden, Event Director for GEO Business, comments, “We are absolutely delighted to have such resolute support from the geospatial community to make GEO Business an energy-packed, forward-looking event. We have responded to demand by growing the exhibition floorspace so it's nearly 400m2 bigger than last year, and to reflect this our free workshop sessions have grown by 34%, so we now have over 140 workshop sessions with live demonstrations of new products and services."
The show enjoys broad support and representation from the geospatial community with twelve event collaborators and supporters from key industry bodies across the geospatial industry. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is the latest organisation to join the growing list of event supporters. The OGC is an international industry consortium of 507 companies, government agencies and universities developing publicly available interface standards to "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services and mainstream IT.
GEO Business promises to be a truly international event, with an exhibition of over 200 geospatial companies from 22 countries across the globe. As well as this, visitor nationality is expected to be extremely diverse, with pre-registered visitors coming from 52 different countries so far, with still a month to go! Those who are keen to take advantage of GEO’s international exhibition must act quickly as there are only two stands remaining - contact Caroline Hobden for full details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The show also offers a dynamic two day conference, enabling delegates to share vital information about the latest geospatial technologies and services across the globe (full details at: http://geobusinessshow.com/conference/conference-programme). Exhibitors will be demonstrating ground-breaking new products and services during the workshop programme, which offers over 140 free workshops running in seven parallel sessions on both days (full details at: http://geobusinessshow.com/workshops/alphabetical-list-workshops). In addition, there will also be a vibrant social programme to maximise possibilities for informal networking, including a gala dinner that only has a few tickets remaining.
