GEO Business 2014—A Phenomenal Response in Just Over Four Months

GEO Business – the highly-anticipated NEW geospatial event to be held in London from 28th – 29th May 2014 has kicked off its visitor marketing campaign with a bang, by promoting an incredible: 76 live workshop sessions, an exhibition with over 80+ international companies, more than 110 abstracts received in response to the call for papers and a Gala Dinner that is already nearly sold out.

Versha Carter, Group Exhibition Director commented “We have had a phenomenal response considering that the event was launched just over four months ago. The UK geospatial industry has been extremely supportive, but it doesn’t just stop there, the interest has gone global with exhibitors and workshops sessions being hosted from companies coming in from around the world.”

More than 76 commercial workshop sessions will be hosted over two days highlighting a range of technologies and solutions including BIM, UAVs, laser scanning, satellite mapping, GIS software, rugged mobile computing, data capture, GNSS, airborne survey, bathymetric survey amongst others. The workshop sessions that are held alongside the exhibition are free to attend. The full programme is available online at

It’s not just the workshops that will be of interest to potential visitors, the exhibition has already attracted more than 80 international companies and is over 75% sold out. The latest exhibitors to confirm their presence are GIS247, Geosolutions SAS, Fugro, Intetics, Altus Positioning Systems, iXBlue and Storm GeoRiver.

The full conference programme is due to be announced shortly and following a staggering response to the Call for Papers (over 110 abstracts received), that too looks set to deliver another hard hitting reason to attend GEO Business in May. Papers will focus on the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry with some very influential and captivating individuals expected to present. The full programme will be in place by 1st March 2014.

Added to what will already be an extremely busy week – social events are also planned specifically to encourage those ‘out of hours’ meetings which are so important to the geospatial community. An informal get together at the Welcome Reception on the eve of the show is open to all GEO Business registered visitors and exhibitors and is FREE to attend. Then on the opening night of the show, the highly anticipated and long awaited Gala Dinner will be taking place at the Pullman Hotel in Kings Cross. Tickets for this event are nearly sold out.

Visitor registration now open and a ‘who’s who’ of big name buyers from across the sector have been quick to signal their intention to attend. If you have an interest in gathering, storing, processing and/or delivery of geospatial information then GEO Business will definitely be of interest.
