The 2022 edition welcomed an impressive increase in visitors, confirming the upward trajectory of the sector and the vital role of trade events in facilitating business and sharing ideas.

GEO Business Event Director, Ollie Hughes, says, “With such a high rate of visitors, it’s hard to believe that GEO Business 2021 was just six months ago! It was so rewarding to see geospatial professionals come together in such a friendly and energised way.

“GEO Business 2022 was a hub of activity for the two whole days. Whether you were checking out new tech, learning from thought-leaders, or making new connections, I sincerely hope this year’s event helps to strengthen your career and business.”

A must-attend event for exhibitors

Federico Uccelli, CEO of Omniasphere, says, “GEO Business has established itself as the defacto GIS/GEO tech conference and exhibition for the UK, attracting quality visitors both locally and International. If you are in the GIS vertical then this is a must-attend event.”

Simon Lloyd, Business Development Manager for Site Vision Surveys Ltd, says, “GEO Business 2022 was a great event. We were able to share our brand with many customers and industry peers. We also enjoyed hearing about the latest innovations and talking to potential clients about our services. We look forward to coming back next year!”

Matt Azzopardi, UK Sales Manager for Worldsensing, adds, “There was definitely an increase in footfall, no question about that at all. And the calibre of the people we talked to was significantly better. It’s been a fantastic show. I’m very impressed and we’ll be back again next year.”

Eye-catching new technology

The show floor was a feast for the eyes, with new products along every aisle. On the Trimble and KOREC stand, visitors got up close to the Trimble X7 3D Laser Scanner, R12i GNSS and S-Series Robotic Total Stations, loggers and software.

Stuart Guthrie-Cadge, Marketing & Engagement Manager for KOREC Group, says, “This year’s GEO Business delivered an impressive number of visitors who were noteworthy in both quality and quantity. The show provided a much-needed opportunity to reconnect with customers in a lively environment, and it was encouraging to see such a diverse programme – great work!”

At the Hexagon Village, visitors got the first look at the new Leica AP20 Autopole, alongside the recently launched Pegasus TRK reality capture mobile mapping system. Not only that, visitors flocked to captivating live demonstrations of the Leica BLK ARC autonomous with the iconic SPOT from Boston Dynamics.

Plus, Topcon Positioning showcased their latest machine control solutions, including the Topcon GT series and Clear Edge software. And visitors got the chance to try on the showstopping NavVis VLX laser scanner with the accompanying IVION software.

Siobhan Reisinger, Marketing Program Manager for NavVis, says, “NavVis was delighted to return as an exhibitor at GEO Business 2022! Visitors were keen to learn more about mobile mapping and experience NavVis VLX in person. Shows like GEO Business are vital to our success as a B2B software company in the geospatial industry. Thank you for another superb show and to everyone who visited us at our booth.”

Several UAV products were on show, courtesy of RIEGL, Aetha, AlphaGeo UK, Lidaretto, Orthodrone, and Teledyne Geospatial who also displayed the new Optech Galaxy airborne lidar.
