Three Geospatial Events Combine to Form Geo Week - 19/09/2018

The International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF), ASPRS Annual Conference, and MAPPS Winter Conference have come together to form ‘Geo Week’ taking place 25-31 January 2019 in Denver, USA. Previously, these three events took place separately throughout the year. By uniting the events, geospatial professionals will be able to attend all three in the space of a week.

Lisa Murray, Group Director for Diversified Communications, said “For years the geospatial community has asked us to collaborate with other events to bring industry members together for a powerful combination of education, technology innovation, and commercial exchange. In 2018, we took a giant step forward with the successful co-location between ILMF and the ASPRS Annual Conference. With the addition of MAPPS in 2019, Geo Week is the next step in the evolution toward a cohesive, vendor-neutral event for the entire geospatial community.”

Karen Schuckman, Program Manager for ASPRS, said “The opportunity to come together in one place over one week restores the power of networking between newcomers and seasoned experts and between practitioners in many related disciplines. Geo Week promises to become the geospatial event of the year for those who are most passionate about mapping and remote sensing in all forms.”

Brian Raber, President of MAPPS, added “The value proposition for attending Geo Week to the private, government and academic sectors is overwhelming by offering complimentary programs benefiting everyone.”

Each of the three events will retain the distinct educational programs their respective attendees have come to rely upon for industry news and information as well as career developments. Various conference pass options will be available to allow attendees to take part in any or all programming and activities. For more information, visit
