13 - 14 November 2014, Hotel Sheraton Av. Niemeyer, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

During the last two years, Geospatial Media & Communications with the support of Board of Geographic Service(DSG) Brasilian Army(EB), has organised two very successful conferences, Geointelligence Latin America, which have attracted the best experts in the field, creating opportunities for conference attendees to learn about geospatial's most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers. Acknowledging the crucial role of geospatial technology in the field of strategic decisions, GeoIntelligence Brasil 2014, a dedicated two day event is being organised with an exclusive focus on defense, maritime and internal security issues as related to Latin America, with special emphasis on Brasil. Though Brasil is fortunate not to have any serious concerns regarding security threats from countries in its neighbourhood, issues related to security and environment protection of the Amazon region and its maritime assets are of grave importance. There is also the problem of narcotics trade and the looming sceptre of terrorism, particularly with the scheduled mega events in the next few years. This conference and exhibition will be the perfect platform for exchanging knowledge and showcasing the latest geospatial technologies available for intelligent decision making.

19 - 20 November, 2014 , Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Aligning Geospatial and BIM technologies and processes to the business goals improves collaboration, efficiency and performance in planning and design phase, during construction, in post-build savings and for ongoing operational management. But there still needs to be awareness and understanding of the differences between geo-information and building information. Geospatial Media and Communications brings to you a high level discussion forum, GeoBIM Europe 2014 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands that aims to bring together experts from the Geospatial, AEC and Infrastructure industry across the region. It will focus on addressing challenges and opportunities of the Infrastructure sector in Europe. The primary agenda of the forum is to provide a platform to understand/acknowledge the need for leveraging Geospatial+BIM (Building Information Modelling) technologies in plan, design, build and operate. In addition, it will showcase solutions by who's who of the industry that can help you gain more accurate, accessible, and actionable insight, which will help you throughout the execution and lifecycle of infrastructure projects.

22 - 23 April, 2015, New Delhi, India

The rapid growth in economy has spurred the pace of urbanization and modernization in India. With this fast-paced growth the utilities – electricity, water, gas, telecom etc. – are under tremendous pressure to meeting the rising demand, ensuring quality supply and reliability. Given how crucial location-awareness of system components and consumers is for the utilities, the geospatial technology will have to play a big role in their day-to-day operations as well as strategic decision-making process. GeoGrid 2015, a two-day conference in New Delhi, intends to facilitate discussions on exploring the roles that geospatial technology can play in utilities management and spread awareness about its features among the end-users. It would focus on assessing the current state of uptake among utilities and paving the way for a better & truly smarter grid.
