Sponsor Feedback and GeoCom '14 - David Henderson

David Henderson the AGI Vice Chair has kindly provided me with a brief report of our visit to the fantastic new GeoCom venue last week:

Along with the AGI Team and some fellow Council Members, last Thursday I attended a meeting of AGI Suppliers SIG at the Chesford Grange Hotel near Warwick where we will hold this year’s GeoComm conference on the 11-13 November. 

The meeting allowed some of our corporate members – 1Spatial, Dotted Eyes/MISO, GGP systems, Sterling Geo and Ordnance Survey – to give some further feedback to the AGI events team (this year chaired by Rollo Home) and for us to have a tour of the conference facilities.

Whilst the move away from Nottingham will bring some inevitable changes to the look and feel of our annual conference, I am really excited by the fresh new opportunities that Chesford Grange Hotel will afford to the event – the food was quite tasty too!!

At AGI we’re really excited about how our 2014 events programme has begun. You can read more about the fantastic success of our first event, hosted by AGI Scotland national group, in Glasgow last month. Members travelled from across UK to participate in some very high quality discussion and debate.  Our events programme complete with new branding and sponsorship opportunities can be found here.

We’re delighted that both ESRI(UK) and Ordnance Survey have committed to Diamond Sponsorship for 2014 and equally pleased to have agreed event sponsorship packages with so many of our other corporate members. Our 2014 event programme in particular has been developed in conjunction with our Suppliers SIG and is giving an important platform for the geographic information industry to discuss many of the big issues that are impacting and presenting opportunity for our members. Plans for 2015 have already started. If you’d like to get involved in any of our events or discuss sponsorship then the AGI Team or any member AGI Council would love to hear from you.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing as many of our members as possible at the next Big 5 event in Belfast on 13 May.
