April 2018 is going to be an exciting month for all geospatial students, staff and industry professionals as Asia-Pacific’s most premier conferences, GeoSmart Asia and Locate 18, come together in Adelaide from 9-11 April, 2018.
With the theme ‘The Art, Science and Business of Geospatial’, this three day international conference will offer insightful workshops, pitchfests, product demonstrations, international plenary speakers of note, thematic sessions, Q&A discussions, social events (e.g. Penfolds Winery tour), and exhibitions displaying state-of-the-art surveying and spatial technologies.
The conference will also host an ‘Interaction Zone’ that will take place at an interactive media space located inside the conference exhibition, where series of interviews and discussions will explore answers to the following questions:
- What are the big challenges facing the spatial sector?
- What are the challenges facing the world that the spatial sector can help address?
- How do we talk about the real-world application of geospatial research, capabilities and technologies?
The conference is also hosting free events open for anyone to attend.

Everything from the mundane to the glamorous is on the table.
