After the most successful GEO Business show to date, with over 2,200 visitors from a staggering 50 countries, the organisers are delighted to announce that over 70% of the exhibit space for 2017 has already been booked!
Show director, Caroline Hobden, commented on the success of the show: “The overwhelming response to the third GEO Business has been phenomenal, both in feedback from exhibitors and visitors and also in the response to launching stand sales. Past exhibitors were given just two weeks to rebook their stand. The majority confirmed straight away and since then, new requests have been flooding in, leaving no doubt that GEO Business 2017 will sell out well in advance.”
It is not surprising then, that next year’s event is so highly anticipated, as the feedback from GEO Business 2016 was overwhelming. 95% of exhibitors and 99% of visitors surveyed rated the show as excellent or good.
Gavin Malyon, Survey Delivery & Excellence Manager, Atkins, commented: “A growing ‘must attend’ event on the Geospatial map, a great mix of hardware, software and technical papers/information under a single roof. Looking forward to next year already.”
Richard Birch, Design and Project Engineer, C&C Baseline Architectural, concluded: “We left inspired and excited about the potential improvements to our business practices and have since invested in some of the hard and software available at the show” and Jon Bylo, Business Development Manager, Fugro Geoservices, summarised the show as: “The best showcase for geomatics and geospatial business in the UK.”
The 2017 event will be using the same winning formula designed to maximise face-to-face interaction between exhibitors and customers: a two-day international exhibition of the latest technology and services from over 200 companies; a programme of commercial workshop sessions providing visitors with a unique opportunity to see live demonstrations of the latest equipment and software; a cutting edge conference addressing the key technical and business issues in the industry to keep delegates one step ahead in this rapidly growing industry, and finally, visitors can also look forward to a full line-up of enjoyable social events for informal networking.
GEO Business 2017 will return to the Business Design Centre in London, UK from 23-24 May 2017.
