BeSpatial’22 is virtual! (Registration Now Open!)
Be Spatial/ urisa ontario is inviting you to present at its 35th AGM (Annual General Meeting), program event and EXPO. The primary presenters for each session are offered one complimentary registration. There are also opportunities to present a webinar throughout the year!
We are Connected! Geospatial plays a pivotal role in providing the fundamental framework for governance, services, infrastructure management and, most importantly today, disaster and recovery management. We stand at the cusp of the 4th Industrial Revolution, which has immense potential to leverage communication and other technology platforms for business growth
BeConnected on May 3 & 4 will explore how connecting anything becomes everything.
The BeSpatial ’22 virtual conference provides an opportunity for geospatial professionals to showcase their achievements, best practices and challenges preparing for and adapting to the predicted and unpredicted changes in future.
Your participation as a speaker is meaningful because it will help identify the current state of adoption and integration of data and technology in geospatial implementations, specifically, the transformational power of connecting data repositories in the collaborative and interorganizational work environment.
This is a 1 full virtual event being offered May 3 & 4 over two 7 hour days. One event registration will include full access to each day's 4 hour morning program streams that will focus on technical, business, management/executive presentations. Plus, there's our popular Industry partners EXPO with all day vendor presentations.
The two afternoons will each offer a choice to attend a 1-3 hour single topic session, for example, health or NG911. These sessions may be in the format of a workshop, townhall, panel and/or seminar session.
Our 2-days program event with its BeConnected theme is designed to help geospatial and information professionals to connect to, learn from and share with your colleagues on various topics and experiences: connect data to data, information to information, people to people and so on...
• develop geospatial data and technology mindset
