Registrations have officially opened for the Geospatial Council of Australia’s (GCA) Locate24 Conference, to be held in Sydney from 7 to 9 May, 2024.
In addition to standard registration, there are several special registration categories:
- Members: For those who are currently a financial member of GCA.
- Young & Emerging Professionals (YEP): For YEPs employed in the surveying or spatial sectors, including government, aged 36 or under on 1 June 2024; and for Early Career Researcher, being academics within five years of the award of their PhD, and as accepted by the Australian Research Council.
- Student Registration: For those who are current full-time university or TAFE students.
- Group Registrations: Discounted for companies sending more than five employees.
Following feedback received from past delegates, the organisers have significantly decreased the registration fees, making the event even more accessible. In addition, those who register before 5:00pm AEDT on 4 March will be able to take advantage of an early-bird discount.
Each year, the Locate conference attracts hundreds of national and international delegates from within and outside the spatial, space and surveying sectors.
As Australia’s premier spatial and surveying conference, Locate provides guests with a unique opportunity to learn about the latest trends and applications in geospatial technologies.
The 2024 event will be held at Sydney’s International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour and will include a gala evening dinner and presentation of the Geospatial Excellence Awards (formerly the Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards).
The convenor for Locate24 is Narelle Underwood, Surveyor-General of NSW.
