Geo Connect Asia 2021 to utilise new hybrid event format

South-east Asia’s flagship geospatial and location intelligence event, Geo Connect Asia, will be a hybrid event held in Singapore, on March 24 and 25, 2021.

Organised by Montgomery Asia, the event is expected to welcome some 1,000 in-person delegates to Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, as well as 1,200 virtual attendees. The virtual event showfloor will feature up to 50 companies, more than half of which are international firms.

Marina Bay Sands will again be the host location for the hybrid event

For delegates attending in-person, GCA 2021 will feature Geo Suites, which are ballrooms converted into exhibition booths. Each Geo Suite will cater to a single exhibitor who can display their products and provide demonstrations on a stage and hold business meetings in pods located within the Suite. Geo Suites will replace a typical tradeshow floor as the main mode of interaction and minimise intermingling between cohorts of attendees.

Besides meeting pods to enable one-to-one meetings between exhibitors and attendees, larger meeting pods that are double in size will also be piloted at GCA to cater to two-to-two meetings. Business meetings can also be scheduled prior to the event, and continue their engagements after the show.

The GCA 2021 Conference is themed Mapping the data-driven future economy, and will be led by high-level speakers and thought leaders from across the global geospatial industry.

The first plenary session, entitled Geospatial Planning & Solutions; the Key to a Robust & Sustainable Recovery, will examine how geospatial solutions can support ASEAN economies in staging a sustainable recovery from the pandemic.

Other key topics the 40 speakers and panellists will be covering at the GCA 2021 Conference include On the Move: Smart Transportation for Asia’s Dynamic Urban Landscapes; Harnessing the Power of Satellite Imagery for a Sustainable Future; and Smarter Infrastructure for Sustainable Cities.
