The ability to go to a single event and get exposed to so much relevant technology is difficult to match.
Bringing these three industry-leading events under the Geo Week banner creates a great opportunity to explore the confluence of these technologies and collaborate across industries and markets to discover new business opportunities.
Geo Week provides key A&E practices for shaping and managing the built environment within building and related industries as a means to achieve required stewardship, sustainability, and savings targets significantly enhances the ability for a triple bottom line approach in expanding, operating, and maintaining the planet built environment.
What excites me the most about this iteration is the shift we have seen in technology accessibility – attendees won’t just see R&D, but real-world applications that will have a meaningful impacts on their businesses.
Bringing together the ILMF, AEC Next and SPAR 3D events makes sense. Technologies such as UAVs, autonomous vehicles, automotive-grade lidar sensors and smart cities have increased the overlaps between the subject areas of the three conferences. When other organizations, such as ASPRS and USIBD, agree to co-locate their own events with Geo Week, the concept is further reinforced. Fewer but bigger, more vibrant trade shows and technical sessions make economic sense for everyone. The networking opportunities will be unparalleled. Geo Week will provide a fabulous stage on which to honor the winners of the Lidar Leader Awards, a joint initiative of Diversified Communications and LIDAR Magazine. The geospatial community will converge on Denver in February 2022 in unprecedented numbers. What an opportunity!
While my focus has been in the geospatial and technology solutions arena, Dewberry also provides services for asset management, interior design, risk management, telecommunications, transportation, site and civil engineering, and many other services for various market segments that fall under the Geo Week banner. I am witnessing increasing cooperation and integration across market segments within our own firm, and it make sense that Geo Week both reflects and supports the growing confluence of these industries and technologies.
The convergence of multiple technology suites and industry verticals will allow anyone at Geoweek to not only learn, but network with the strategic players influencing our built world.
The Geo Week conference answers questions regarding the best manner to develop and manage the built environment and provides industry managers and executives with the tools required to be better stewards of the planet-built environment.
Geo Week is the confluence of the many technical advances in how we model, construct, and view our world. It is the one-stop shop for all things geospatial, but as we now see, it is providing a rich and fertile source of new ideas to solve our collective problems in the built world, the natural world above, below, and beyond. We see, we learn, and we use. What better source is there?
AEC Next, ILMF, and SPAR 3D coming together to the Geo Week 2022 event reflects what we see happening in the infrastructure industry. As owner-operators and engineering project delivery firms strive to improve the performance of their assets and projects, they are turning to digital twins, which require, among other things, the convergence of reality modeling, GIS, BIM, and engineering models. Geo Week 2022 is set to provide infrastructure professionals with visibility into the core technologies, best practices, and real-world examples of how digital twins are driving better outcomes.
While I’m looking forward to ANY event I can actually attend in person; I’m particularly excited about the conjunction of SPAR 3D, AEC Next, ILMF into a single event for 2022! Far too often we silo ourselves into an industry, but this is precisely why innovations are slow to migrate from one industry to another. The geospatial industry is responsible for the information the built world is constructed upon; and there is so much overlap in technology, processes, and knowledge. Bringing these three events together is a great opportunity for us all to learn from each other and share the tools and processes each industry is excelling at applying
