Cutting Edge Conference

Geospatial: Powering the 4th Industrial Revolution

We are in the middle of a technological revolution that is altering the way we live, move, work, and communicate with one another. Due to its velocity, scope and systems impact the transformation is unlike anything we have experienced before. This is rapidly becoming known as the fourth industrial revolution.

The GEO Business 2018 Conference will celebrate, challenge and develop the role that geospatial has to play in maximising the digital economy as part of this revolution. Some key areas of discussion will be:

  • How is geospatial enabling the growth of existing and emerging industries?
  • In response to the 2017 Autumn Statement, how can the UK maximise value from data linked to location?
  • What is the future of the “traditional” geospatial industry as this revolution continues?

The conference will also demonstrate how geospatial technology and solutions are enabling change in society through community based projects, delivering insight and information for the public good and how geospatial is helping to grow digital businesses on a global scale with real life success stories.


The 2018 conference programme will be available to view soon.
