GEO Business, geospatial exhibition and conference, has announced that registration is now open! With more exhibition space than ever before, GEO Business 2019 is on track to be another record breaking event. An unprecedented number of exhibitors rebooked their stands and new exhibitors are still jumping at the chance to be a part of what is shaping up to be the most successful GEO Business event to date.

This year’s event sees the exhibition hall opening up further to offer more space than ever before including (but not limited to) Ordnance Survey, Carlson Software, GeoSLAM, Murphy Surveys, ATMOS, KOREC, RIEGL, Mapix Technologies, CHC Navigation, Trimble, Teledyne Optic, Leica Geosystems, Opti-cal Survey Equipment, Laser Technology, Topcon, Sokkia, and many, many more.
With geospatial technology impacting more and more industries, GEO Business is attracting visitors from a wider range of industry sectors than ever before. Show Director Caroline Hobden commented, “GEO Business has made massive strides in recent years, ensuring it fully serves this buoyant and burgeoning industry. The 2019 event is on target to break more records yet again due to its huge offering of cutting edge content and networking opportunities.”
2019 will see the return of the highly successful free to attend seminar programme designed to demonstrate the remarkable impact geospatial technologies and solutions are having on our global environment. The programme will feature case studies from companies demonstrating how they are reducing costs and risk, whilst increasing productivity. The latest in augmented reality/virtual reality, BIM, earth observation & satellite, GIS & big data, laser scanning & LiDAR, mobile mapping, remote sensing, surveying, UAVs, and visualisation will feature within the fields of architecture, engineering & construction, asset management, coastal/inshore, education, environmental, equipment theft, floods, heritage, highways, instrumentation & monitoring, insurance, mining, mobility, railways, robotics & automation, security/forensics, smart cities, tunnelling, and utilities. The programme is developed via a call for abstracts (deadline 21 January 2019) and the organisers encourage applications from all members of the community and from all corners of the world.

The exhibition and seminar programme will run alongside a strategic senior level conference of invited speakers highlighting how geospatial is at the heart of the UK’s government policy supporting future economic growth. And to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to keep abreast of these critical developments, the organisers are pleased to announce that for the first time the conference will be FREE to attend.
Visitors will also have the unique opportunity to attend the well-established commercial workshop programme hosted by exhibitors demonstrating their latest products and services and a full line up of innovative social activities designed for informal networking with colleagues old and new.

GEO Business is the UK’s biggest geospatial event for everyone involved in the gathering storing, processing and delivering of geospatial information. Launched in 2014 and organised in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES), the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Survey Association (TSA) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) is an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. ICES is now recognised as the leading chartered professional body for civil engineering surveyors. They have introduced relevant and meaningful competencies for geospatial engineers and commercial managers which make a difference. www.cices.org
The Association for Geographic Information (AGI) exists to represent the interests of the UK’s GI industry; a wide-ranging group of public and private sector organisations, suppliers of GI software, hardware, data and services, consultants, academics and interested individuals. The AGI, by way of its unique membership forum, brings together this previously disparate GI community to share ideas on best practice, experience and innovation, and offers access to unparalleled networking opportunities with significant business benefits. As such it acts on behalf of the community as a whole. Since its formal inception in 1989, it has built up a significant membership base and established itself as the respected voice in GI and isthemembership body for everyone with an interest or involvement with GI. http://www.agi.org.uk
RICS – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – was created in 1868 in the United Kingdom. It received a royal charter in 1881. Their members are known as chartered surveyors, and are recognised by the designation after their name – FRICS (for Fellow of RICS) or MRICS (for Member of RICS). Today we are a global property professional body which aims to: regulate and promote the profession; maintain the highest educational and professional standards; protect clients and consumers through a strict code of ethics; provide impartial advice, analysis and guidance. www.rics.org
The Survey Association, known generally as TSA, is the trade body for commercial survey companies in the UK. The association was formed in 1979 to give a focus for private sector businesses in land and hydrographic survey. It is important to realise, however, that it is not a regulatory body. The role of TSA is to promote best practice amongst its members, provide a forum for members for discussion, debate and continuing professional development and, to the wider audience such as engineers and architects, provide guidance on new methods and techniques and a list of suitably qualified and experienced companies. www.tsa-uk.org.uk/
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) strives to promote and progress civil engineering. ICE was founded in 1818 and was granted a royal charter in 1828 where they declared that their aim was to “foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering”. That is still their aim today and they represent around 80,000 members worldwide. http://www.ice.org.uk/
