Registration for LOCATE20 is now live

By on 27 November, 2019

Early birds can now secure the best rates for the Locate20 Conference, set to take place 28-30 April 2020 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Locate20 organisers say next year’s event promises to put attendees and their businesses at the cutting edge of how Geospatial and Location technologies are being used to create tailored, innovative solutions in the building of our digital economy. Locate20 is again being touted as the place to explore how the industry can collaborate and converge to transcend technical and geographic silos and empower our industry to influence Australia’s economy by leveraging new technological developments.

Locate20 will also look at how new technology and practices are equipping the industry to meet the challenges our planet is faced with, how we can learn from our collective experiences and share in new collaborative and profitable partnerships that will enhance the ecosystem of the geospatial community. This year, organisers say Locate20 will provide attendees with an even more valuable experience, as they say they have reflected on the feedback you provided last year and tailored the program and exhibition experience to be more relevant to your needs and interests.

The final cut-off date for submissions for abstracts, workshops & Engagement at the Hub is 5pm AEDT this Friday 29 November 2019.
