GEO-12 Set for Sell Out

Exhibition space at the UK’s only geospatial trade exhibition is going fast and expected to sell out shortly. More than ninety percent of stands have already been sold and the organisers are in active discussions regarding the remaining opportunities. Taking place on the 21st and 22nd of March 2012 at the Holiday Inn, London Elstree, GEO-12 is completely free to attend with an average attendance in excess of 600 visitors per year attracted by a packed programme of free seminars, live product demos and great networking opportunities including a Gala Evening.

Exhibitors already committed to GEO-12 include Leica Geosystems, Topcon, Phoenix, SCCS and Opti-cal as well as Z & F, Penmap and 3D Laser Mapping. Landmark and Ohmex are returning to the event after a short gap while first time exhibitors include UAS/UAV mapping company Gatewing and virtual reality specialists Virtalis. Regular supporters include Faro, C.Scope, Applications in CAD, Hemisphere GPS, Spheron as well as MBS Survey Software and Positioning Resources. GEO-12 has also support from the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), the British Cartographic Society and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

“This is a tremendous achievement that puts us in the best possible position to deliver a first class event for both visitors and sponsor organisations,” commented Stephen Booth of PV Publications, organisers of the event and publishers of Geomatics World, GIS Professional and Engineering Surveying Showcase. “We pride ourselves in offering value for money and a return on investment and we can now concentrate our efforts putting together a complete package to attract record visitor numbers including an exciting programme of seminars and debates and networking opportunities.”

The GEO events are designed for everyone involved in the capture and application of geospatial information for construction, civil engineering, development, local / national government agencies, professional survey practice and consultancy. Attracting exhibitors demonstrating the latest technology and developments in the fields of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Satellite Positioning and Navigation systems (GNSS), laser scanning, data modelling and analysis and mapping together with leading trade organisations and academic institutions, this year’s GEO event is a ‘must attend’.

Attendance at GEO-12 is completely free of charge and includes free parking, free onsite refreshments and free entry to a full two-day programme of stimulating seminars and debates. Themes for 2012 include the hot topic of Building Information Management (BIM), ‘Managing Change: opportunities and threats’, a ‘Point Cloud Clinic’ as well as many other topics, streams and speakers. In addition, those wishing to extend their stay can complement their experience with a ticket for the event’s Gala Dinner sponsored by KOREC, topping the evening off with a great deal on overnight accommodation.
