GEO Business and Class of Your Own Launch GEO Careers

It would seem there is little understanding of professions within the built environment and few young people aspire to a career in this important sector of the British and global economy. It is with this serious skills shortage in mind that the organisers of GEO Business 2017 are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new educational element to the show – GEO Careers. Working alongside Alison Watson from Class of Your Own (COYO), they have together developed a full day of enticing activities and presentations for students aged 14-19, with the aim of demonstrating just how exciting the...

Geo Business 2014 - United We Stand

Over 1600 attended the UK’s first GEO Business show and conference in London in May. With a definite buzz, in the view of one observer, ‘it marked the dawn of a new era for the geospatial community’. GeoBusiness 2014 was generally hailed as a great success – for the organisers; for the 118 exhibitors; for the 1600 punters; and, we would argue, for the whole geospatial industry in the UK. Some of us remember the AGI conference and show held at the same venue – Islington’s Business Design Centre – a few years ago and will agree that this was... (read more)

Geo Business 2016 - Something for Everyone

GeoBusiness returned to the Islington Business Design Centre for its third year with a larger exhibition, more visitors and, if anything, an even buzzier atmosphere. The industry’s biggest players seemed to have bigger stands and more new suppliers were displaying their wares, reports Richard Groom. Inevitably, delegates had to make choices between concurrent conference sessions and workshops, whilst also catching up with friends and colleagues. This year it was made a little easier as the conference was concentrated into a single stream and the workshops became five streams. Robots and ‘us’ The first session of the first day started with...

GEO Business 2017 - Bringing Geomatics and Geospatial Professionals Closer

Event chair, Steven Eglinton, director of GeoEnable and vice-chair of AGI, urges geospatial professionals to come together for two days of conferences, workshops and exhibitions to learn, network, share and collaborate. While GEO Business’ roots are in survey and geomatics, the event has broadened into ‘geospatial’.

Organisations represented include: Association for Geographic Information (AGI) Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Royal Institution of...
