Australia’s premier spatial conference, Locate, has announced the speaker line up for its national conference this year called Locate20, to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, 28 to 30 April 2020.
Organisers say this year’s conference will see a particular emphasis on how geospatial technology and practices are equipping us to meet the immediate and serious challenges our planet is currently faced with such as drought, bushfires, water scarcity and health outbreaks.
The line up includes over 50 inspiring speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries including Government, academics, defence force, surveying, technology, mining, natural resources, energy, transport, agriculture, utilities and more who will speak to national
and international delegates from within and outside the spatial industry on a range of important topics.
The action-packed three-day program will feature keynote and breakout sessions, workshops, panel discussions, the Asia Pacific Excellence Awards (APSEA’s), a Young Professional Symposium, and a Market Day - an exhibition open to the public to attend and interact with
geospatial technologies providing them with an opportunity to learn how we can harness the power of location.
