The organisers of the European LiDAR Mapping Forum have been astounded by the response to the relatively recent launch of this event. Having promoted the new floor plan only 2 months ago this week, exhibitors have been signing up in their droves and now they only have 2 stands left!
For those not familiar with the event, The ELMF is the premier event in Europe focused on applying the technology of LIDAR and laser scanning to deliver outside mapping and imaging solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner across a variety of markets. The second ELMF is taking place in Salzburg, Austria from 29 30 November 2011.
Event Manager Caroline Hobden commented, We are delighted to be leading the LIDAR charge in Europe. We are building on the phenomenal success of the first event last year and the market is supporting us all the way.
Recent additions to the impressive exhibitor list include Bentley, Blom, and Iqsoft. To view the complete exhibitor list, please go to http://www.lidarmap.org/ELMF/exhibition/exhibitor_list.aspx
The ELMF team have also witnessed a fantastic response to the call for papers with over 80 abstracts submitted for consideration. The Conference Committee under the guidance of Conference Chairman Alastair MacDonald are currently reviewing all the abstracts and the programme will be launched at the beginning of September.
Last years inaugural event attracted 613 professionals from the mapping, surveying and GIS industries representing 46 countries. The conference programme heard 46 technical papers presented by leading authorities in their field, supported by a sold-out exhibition with 51 of the top international organisations in attendance.
The organizers, Intelligent Exhibitions, have a successful record of 10 years of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum [ILMF] the premier international conference for LIDAR and Mobile Mapping which is held annually in the USA. With growing acceptance in Europe of the benefits of LIDAR in low cost mapping, the European LIDAR community wanted a showcase for their fast growing number of applications, and so the ELMF was born. The next ILMF is taking place in Denver, CO, USA from January 23 25, 2012. There is a Call for Papers for this event, with a closing deadline of September 7th, 2011.
