GEO Business is Back for 2023

GEO Business has announced that visitor registration is now open. The free-to-attend event, hosted at ExCeL London on 17-18 May 2023, brings the geospatial community together all under one roof.

Each year around 3,000 experts from across the profession attend to share ideas, source new technologies, discover new ways of working and grow their networks.

The highly anticipated 2023 event is set to be the best yet, featuring 120 global brands and cutting-edge start-ups showcasing the newest tech, tools and solutions for geospatial. Plus, a CPD accredited education programme with 200 sessions to choose from will allow visitors to get up to date with the latest developments.

Ollie Hughes, Event Director of GEO Business, says: “We’re excited to be planning a stand-out event for 2023, that offers even more opportunities for the geospatial community to connect, collaborate and innovate. With free registration now open, we can’t wait to welcome our visitors on 17-18 May.”

The whole geospatial ecosystem in one place

The exhibition at GEO Business will be a one-stop-shop for finding the latest solutions for capturing, processing, analysing and presenting geospatial information. The tech on display will include 3D visualisation; aerial mapping; BIM; GIS/GNSS; laser scanning and LiDAR; machine learning and AI; mobile mapping; photogrammetry; point clouds; reality capture; remote sensing; robotics and automation; Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM); UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)/Drones Visualisation; augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR); and more.

Among the leading equipment manufacturers, software companies and service providers that have been confirmed to exhibit are Aetha, Certainty 3D (TopoDOT), Esri UK, Geolantis.360, GeoMax International, Geosense, GeoSLAM, Hexagon, L3Harris Geospatial, Microgeo, NavVis, Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland, Reduct nv, RIEGL, Screening Eagle Technologies (Proceq), Senceive, Spyrosoft, and TopCon Positioning, and UCL. Additional companies are being added to the list each week.

The show is also supported by five leading organisations: the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS); Association for Geographic Information (AGI); The Survey Association (TSA); Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES); and Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).

Learn and get inspired in the education programme

As well as a central exhibition, the event will feature a CPD-accredited programme, offering 200 sessions across six theatres. Attendees can expect to be inspired and informed by a wide range of talks and panels, focusing on the key areas shaping geospatial. Further details will be announced soon.

The programme covers a range of different applications for geospatial, including the built environment, infrastructure, transport, utilities and energy, surveying, mapping, and land and natural resource management.

Last year’s speaker programme featured big names in geospatial, such as: Earth-i CEO Charles Davis; Nick Trigg, Business Innovation Manager for Satellite Applications Catapult; Amy Manefield, Head of Data Operations – NUAR for the Geospatial Commission; Geollect Ltd data scientists Dr Adam Symington and Dr Anna Ledwoch; Noemi Roecklinger, Geospatial Data Analyst for Arup; Newcastle University researcher Mingyu Zhu; Chris Williams, Geospatial Lead for British Geological Survey; Donna Lyndsay (Innovation Lead) and Dan Hirst (Data Scientist) from Ordnance Survey; CICES President, Andrew Evans; Alex McKee, Outreach Officer for Newcastle University; and Get Kids Into Survey’s Elaine Ball.
