MapInfo Forum 2013

By on 10 September, 2013


The time has arrived for the MapInfo Community to come together at the MapInfo Forum 2013. Pitney Bowes’ MapInfo Forum roadshow is designed to bring MapInfo community members together, and will visit eight locations across Australia.

This forum, unlike previous MapInfo forums, is structured around direct feedback from the MapInfo community. There are more cities being visited, a much greater emphasis is being placed on user presentations, and an opportunity for everyone to network with peers. The forum is designed to bring together professionals from diverse realms that share something in common – MapInfo Location Intelligence.

Included in the forums will be presentations from Pitney Bowes on the vision and strategy of the Location Intelligence portfolio, including products like MapInfo Professional and Spectrum Spatial. There will also be technical sessions to help guide the effective use of the technology and access to expert staff to discuss specific topics on the day.

“We want to do everything we can to support the vibrant MapInfo community in Australia and New Zealand”, says Simon Bird, General Manager of Pitney Bowes Software AU/NZ. “I am looking forward to seeing more of our customers sharing their experiences and success stories directly with their peers.”

MapInfo Forum 2013 will cover:

  • What’s new and coming in the MapInfo suite
  • Customer case study presentations
  • Tips n’ tricks to get more from the technology
  • Interactive technology focused breakout streams

The 8 Australian locations being visited include:

  • Brisbane, 15th October 2013
  • Sydney, 16th October 2013
  • Melbourne, 17th October 2013
