Geospatial plays a pivotal role in providing the fundamental framework for governance, services, infrastructure and asset management and, most importantly today, disaster and recovery management. There is immense potential to leverage communication and other technology platforms for business growth.
The BeSpatial virtual conference provides an opportunity for geospatial professionals to showcase their achievements, best practices and challenges preparing for and adapting to the predicted and unpredicted changes in future.
Your participation as a speaker is meaningful because it will help identify the current state of adoption and integration of data and technology in geospatial implementations, specifically, the transformational power of connecting data repositories in the collaborative and interorganizational work environment.
BeSpatial 2024 is a fully virtual event being offered May 1 & 2 over two 8 hour days. One event registration includes full access to each day's program streams focused on technical, business, management/executive presentations. Plus, there's our popular Industry partners EXPO and IP sessions with industry partner presentations.
There will also be an option to attend single topic sessions that may be in the format of a workshop, townhall, panel and/or seminar.
Our 2-days program event with its BePrepared theme is designed to help geospatial and information professionals to connect to, learn from and share with your colleagues on various topics and experiences: showcase your creative ways to connect data to data, information to information, people to people and so on...
• develop geospatial data and technology mindset
