The target audience

The GeoPlace conference is free to attend for its core target audience of address, street and geographic information experts from across the public sector in the UK.

The work of the Geospatial Commission puts the spotlight on the use and value of geographic information, raising interest in its potential to senior decision makers in the public sector.

Capitalising on this, the GeoPlace conference is expanding its usual target audience from local government to the whole of the public sector as we see that address and street data is increasingly being used to generate strategic insights with the view to targeting resources more efficiently and affecting service transformation.
