Number of exhibitors at INTERGEO rises to over 500
Karlsruhe, 1 September 2011. The Navigation Conference is being held as part of INTERGEO for the first time. The German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) and the Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (BITKOM) are staging their conference in conjunction with the international leading trade fair and conference for geodesy, geoinformation and land management from 27 to 29 September in Nuremberg. “This is a logical step, given that the interplay between navigation, IT and geoinformation offers such enormous potential for innovation. By engaging in cross-industry dialogue, we aim to create synergies that will help German companies – and SMEs in particular – forge ahead in the international market,” says Rainer Bomba, State Secretary in the BMVBS. Meanwhile, the number of exhibitors due to attend the trade fair and conference for geodesy, geoinformation and land management has now risen to over 500 companies from a total of 31 countries.
Held under the slogan “Finding your way in the intelligent world”, the Navigation Conference will take a closer look at topics including networked navigation in intelligent cities, real-time services via cloud computing and the proper way to handle aspects of data protection. The programme for the Navigation Conference on 28 September in the CongressCenter Nürnberg (CCN East) is available (in German) at www.bmvbs.de/DieNavigationskonferenz. The BMVBS site also offers free registration for the event until 21 September.
The Forum for Satellite Navigation will also be ensuring close links with the trade fair. With the BMVBS acting as patron and host, Germany’s central platform for navigation initiatives will be showcasing its services with a joint stand at INTERGEO for the first time. The stand in Hall 6 will be located close to the displays by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European GNSS Agency (GSA).
DVW e.V. – the German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management – is the patron of INTERGEO, which is being held from 27 to 29 September 2011 in Nuremberg.
