A free-to-attend, half-day online conference, for public sector professionals involved in location based decision-making

26th January 2021 (am)

For 2021, we are taking the Cadcorp Local Government Conference online.

Local authorities are currently facing unprecedented challenges. Against a backdrop of shifting priorities, there is high demand for easily accessible public services and improved community engagement.

This online conference will look at how extracting greater value from data, with a Geographic Information System (GIS), builds capacity to meet future service needs, while helping residents make informed choices.

We will explore a range of practical examples to help delegates maximise the value from their investment in GIS and web mapping, using the latest spatial data.

Who should attend?

This free-to-attend conference is aimed at those who work in central or local government and are involved in location based decision-making. For example, this may include GIS, IT, Planning and Environment teams. This event will be equally relevant to those considering investing in GIS technology for the first time and for those looking to get more from their existing investment.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network in an online breakout session with like-minded professionals.
