Despite distinctly autumnal weather, the mood was upbeat as INTERGEO welcomed an estimated 17,000 trade visitors and 1,300 congress delegates to Hamburg in mid-October. Staged by Hinte GmbH and hosted by the German Society of Surveyors (DVW), the event had its eye firmly on the future, with Unmanned Aerial Systems, Building Information Modelling and Smart City solutions all having dedicated exhibition zones and forums to give visitors the heads-up on latest developments.
“INTERGEO is where the geo IT sector meets its users. INTERGEO is cross-industry dialogue at its very best. It focuses on the resource of the future – smart geoinformation,” said Prof. Hansjörg Kutterer, DVW’s newly-elected President. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Fröhlich from Zoller+Fröhlich spoke for the majority of exhibitors in giving his verdict: “INTERGEO is the world’s absolute top event for our customers. They fly in from all over the world in order to meet us and check out the latest developments in the sector.”
