GEO Business Virtual Forum is Launching Next Month

The team behind GEO Business have announced the launch of their new virtual forum, which will take place next month on 17-20 May.

The sessions will cover a range of topics, including sustainability, COP26, the drive to net zero, the Locus Charter, data ethics, diversity, the future of the geospatial profession, and much more.

Portfolio director Ollie Hughes says: “As GEO Business has moved to November, we want to keep the community connected and mark the original May dates of the live event. So, we’re working with our committee and partners to bring our audience some great virtual content, running throughout the week in May when the show would have taken place.”

The sessions will be available to watch live through the GEO Business website and on-demand after they’ve occurred. The full programme for the virtual forum will be announced in the coming weeks (it can be found at
