GeoCom, the Association for Geographic Information’s (AGI) flagship event, returns at the end of November with a focus on geospatial and its role in post-pandemic recovery.
Registration is free for AGI Members. Non-Members can sign up for free Network Membership to join the event.
Over two afternoon sessions, thought-leaders from Government, industry and business will be sharing insights on what Responsible Resilient Recovery means from a global perspective. Presentations, panel discussions and networking will also discuss the environment and sustainability, public health, infrastructure and the economy.
Denise McKenzie, AGI Chair says: “As UK prepares to move forward from this unprecedented moment in history, our flagship event returns online to explore the opportunities for geospatial and the role of our community in setting the direction of the new normal and creating a sustainable future. Geospatial has played a vitally important role in our collective response to Covid and can play an even bigger role in our recovery from it. We will consider how to shape a more resilient world while using making responsible use of geospatial technologies.”
“We’re once again holding GeoCom online to enable as many people as possible to participate. It’s free for all AGI members. If you want to take part and you’ve not yet joined, simply sign up for free Network Membership via our website. This is a great opportunity to join the conversation on Responsible Resilient and discuss how it aligns with creating a sustainable future and I look forward to two afternoons packed with presentations, panel discussions and networking.”
