Asia’s leading international geospatial industry event, Geo Connect Asia, will return to Singapore on 15 and 16 March 2023.
The event will bring approximately 2,500 professionals together for two days of face-to-face and online discussions and networking, along with an exhibition featuring more than 100 companies, at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands.
The conference’s main theme, ‘Advancing sustainable & resilient geospatial solutions for an interconnected world,’ reflects the need to respond to sustainability goals to address challenges associated with climate change, urban growth and food security.
Geo Connect Asia will also incorporate the Digital Construction Asia event and will be co-located with the inaugural Drones Asia Show. The combined events are expected to attract more than 3,000 delegates and visitors from Singapore, the Asian region and beyond.
Supported by the Singapore Land Authority, Geo Connect Asia offers a platform for Southeast Asia’s governments, businesses and not-for-profit sectors to bring geospatial, locational intelligence and remote sensing into the mainstream.
As well as the main conference, the Digital Underground Connect Expert Stage returns this year with the theme of ‘Advancing subsurface utility mapping for construction and asset management’.
A second Expert Stage will run with the theme of ‘A data driven roadmap for measuring sustainability in the construction world,’ while a third Expert Stage on road and rail infrastructure is in the final stages of development.
In addition, a co-located UNGGIM seminar titled ‘Geo-enabled effective land administration’ will address the challenges of managing the ASEAN region’s resources. The seminar will be co-organised by the United Nations Expert Group on Land Administration and Management (UN-EG-LAM) and the UN-GGIM-AP Working Group 2 on Cadastre and Land Management.
Geo Connect Asia 2023 has received the support of more than 30 industry organisations, with Trimble being Platinum Sponsor for the third consecutive event and Topcon becoming a Silver Sponsor for the first time.
