AEC Next, SPAR 3D Expo and Conference, International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) and Geo Week, scheduled for a July event in Chicago, are pivoting to a series of virtual content for 2020. The change was necessitated by the ongoing health and safety issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
AEC Next, SPAR 3D, ILMF and Geo Week will produce a series of interactive virtual content throughout 2020 including webinars, virtual product showcases, industry reports, weekly news, and a virtual awards ceremony announcing the recipients of the 2020 Lidar Leader Awards.
“While we cannot come together physically this summer in Chicago as we hoped, our staff and advisory board are busy creating virtual opportunities in the coming months to connect with our global community. It’s been made abundantly clear that our customers rely heavily on our events for education and to get quality leads and make business connections, and we will answer that call by continuing to provide opportunities virtually this year,” Event Director Christine Salmon said.
“We are grateful to all of our customers and stakeholders for their patience and support of this move,” imparts Lisa Murray, Group Director, Diversified Communications. “The team is excited to bolster efforts to connect our community virtually until we can be back together physically. The silver lining is, we have unprecedented online engagement which is introducing new audiences to our platform. This will inevitably translate to more new potential customers now and at our next live event in 2021.”
Details about the 2020 virtual content and the next live event in 2021 will be announced soon. In the meantime, free webinars and reports are available online now at aecnext.com, spar3d.com, and geo-week.com.
