The target audience

The Everything Happens Somewhere" conference is free to attend for its core target audience of address, street and geographic information experts in the UK.

It is this type of geographic information that is increasingly being used by councils to facilitate data analytics and generate strategic insights with the view to targeting resources more efficiently and affecting service transformation. The conference programme will feature examples of this, so we also expect to attract Business Intelligence and Analytics Officers, Policy and Research Officers and Chief Information Officers

The 2017 event, which took place in Leeds, attracted 312 attendees and speakers from the following unique organisations (and scroll down to see job titles):
