Portland, Maine – USA, February 8, 2023 – Organizers of Geo Week, the premier event that champions the coming together of geospatial technologies and the built world, are anticipating that more than 2,500 industry professionals will attend next week’s event. The event features a completely sold-out exhibit hall floor and will take place February 13-15, 2023, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. 

The World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) will actively participate in the Geo Week conference program as a strategic partner. Barbara Ryan, Executive Director of WGIC, served on the Geo Week Advisory Board. WGIC is organizing three events at Geo Week including a session on industry-academia collaboration, a panel in partnership with MAPPS on climate and Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), and an event dedicated to raising awareness about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). WGIC will also participate in the exhibition and organize a meeting of members.   

“Geospatial technology has changed how we interact with both the built and natural world,” said Lee Corkhill, Group Event Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of the event. “The people, technologies and organizations that are defining this digital future that spans coastlines, cities and entire countries have come together at Geo Week to explore how these solutions can be most effectively utilized to tackle complex projects, develop new workflows and solve real-world problems.” 

Geo Week was created in response to the changing needs of geospatial and built world professionals, and to acknowledge the increasing convergence of technology. This single, encompassing event represents the intersection of tools, technologies, and people in collaboration with event partners, ASPRS (American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing), ISPRS (International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing), MAPPS, USIBD (U.S. Institute of Building Documentation), and WGIC (World Geospatial Industry Council).
