CONVERGENCE, COLLABORATION AND COMMUNITY – TOWARDS A STRONGER ECONOMY
Brisbane will host the Locate Conference in 2021 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre between the 30th March and 1st of April. Here we will share from across industry sectors how Geospatial and Location technologies and practices are being used, highlighting the fundamental role they play in the building of our digital economy. We will also explore and facilitate the convergence of the spatial industry and the influence and importance of our industry to broader, non-traditional, industries and the Australian economy. Spatial data and location services now underpin many activities driving us to explore collaborative partnerships with businesses in other sectors, working together to produce a greater whole and to recognize new ways of doing things.
Locate21 will also look at how new technology and practices are equipping us to meet the challenges our planet is faced with, how we can learn from our collective experiences and share in new collaborative partnerships that will enhance the ecosystem of the geospatial community and ensure the value of location data to inform and enable good decision making is recognized by the broader community.
