Geo Connect Asia (GCA) 2021, South-east Asiaâ€™s inaugural geospatial and location intelligence technology conference and Singaporeâ€™s first large-scale hybrid event of the year, kicked off today at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre.
There were nearly 1,000 professional visitors on-site and a virtual audience of up to 1,200 international and local attendees.
On-site visitors at GCA 2021 were greeted by a range of innovative features designed to maximise visitor safety while providing an authentic, interactive tradeshow experience.
These include the conversion of ballrooms into exhibition booths to create two Geo Suites, where each Geo Suite featured 16 meeting pods, allowing visitors to conduct private business meetings safely, and minimise intermingling between different cohorts. Meeting pods are fitted with plexiglass to separate the exhibitor and buyer, with microphones on both sides for a better auditory experience.
A host of safety management measures were also in place including automated check-in through facial recognition and temperature-sensing wristbands.
