Organised by Montgomery Asia, GeoConnect Asia will bring the industry together for two days of focused discussion and networking on 18-19 March 2020 at Suntec Singapore.
Come 2020, the pivotal position of geospatial information in the knowledge focused economy will be harnessed with the launch of GeoConnect Asia, a new trade event.
Focusing on a central theme ‘Global Solutions for Asia’s Geospatial Markets’, the inaugural exhibition will be supported by a series of conferences and seminars across various industry verticals such as asset management, building and construction, logistics, maritime, oil and gas, precision farming, mining, railways, smart cities and utilities. The plenary session will include a leadership panel enabling ministries and government departments from across the ASEAN region to discuss cross border issues and standards for the industry.
GeoConnect Asia 2020 is expected to attract 2,300 visitors from the region and 65 participating companies from sectors such as aerial photography and surveying, building information modelling (BIM), earth observation and satellite, LiDAR, mapping and surveying technologies, remote sensing and UAVs.
GeoConnect Asia 2020 is supported by GeoWorks, an industry centre set up by the Singapore Land Authority, under the Singapore Geospatial Master Plan to bring together geospatial businesses, sectoral users, research institutions and the government to foster a vibrant geospatial ecosystem in Singapore. GeoWorks hosts 29 GeoTech companies, as well as 21 GeoPartners.
Tan Boon Khai, Chief Executive of Singapore Land Authority (SLA) was delighted to support the launch of a new regional event that can drive the adoption of geospatial technology, applications and data in Singapore and the wider ASEAN region.
The event is also endorsed by membership organisations with a strong regional focus on the construction and civil engineering sectors, including Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), as well as SG Tech, Singapore’s premier trade association for the technology industries and the Singapore Tourism Board.
More details will be announced in the coming months leading up to the event in March 2020.
