UK: The UK’s biggest geospatial exhibition and conference, GEO Business 2017, occurred at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London last month. This time, the two-day event enjoyed its fourth year of significant growth, serving up to 2386 attendees to its 200 exhibitors.
Among some of the important highlights, workshops by Leica Geosystems, Earth-I, 3D Laser Mapping, Ordnance Survey, and Bentley Systems, were the top five crowd-pullers. The world-class Conference program yet again delivered a magnificent array of cutting edge presentations with eager delegates piling into the room for each session.
At the success of the event, Caroline Hobden, Event Director, GEO Business said, “We work hard every year to ensure that our content stays as fresh, and as relevant, as possible for our audience, and the support from the industry, as always, has been phenomenal. Judging by the wonderful feedback, GEO Business is meeting – and surpassing – the demands of the dynamic industry that it serves.”
“We’re already looking forward to 2018. A host of loyal exhibitors and new companies are already on the waiting list to book their space for next May, so it looks like it’s going to be another hugely successful event,” she says.
Summing up their exhibitor experience Muneer Hassan, technical sales & support manager at SCCS, says: “We have been non-stop on the stand all day – for us, this has been the best show of the year!”
“It’s essential for our company to have a presence at events like GEO Business. The sheer amount of people who work in the geomatics/geospatial industries who attend these events means that we have a fantastic opportunity to network, develop existing relationships, meeting potential future clients in the process. Year on year I’m increasingly impressed by what GEO Business has to offer a business like ours and I’ll certainly be attending GEO Business 2018,” says Formby Surveys’ MD Andy Roberts.
