Andrea 300x300
Andrea Bollella, Priority Third Party Data Manager and quiz host!

We are super excited and thrilled to see you all this year at our in-person conference. The fun will be starting from the night before where we will be hosting an interactive quiz to break the ice and keep you entertained. If you enjoy getting your general knowledge and trivia skills put to the test, then you should definitely come along and have a blast.

Our host for the evening will be our own Priority Third Party Data Manager, Andrea Bollella, who will be dividing you into groups to make sure you are having a great time, and you get to know other delegates attending the conference.

Aside from being a very extrovert personality, Andrea looks after our third party data division where establishments that are considered a priority for inclusion (i.e. Hospitals, GPs, Pharmacies, etc) in the National Address & Street Gazetteer are validated against additional sources and classified correctly. The knowledge of the type of building that Emergency Services are soon approaching may assist in vital procedures to get the best outcome.

Andrea was an Authority Address Custodian for 2 years before joining GeoPlace in 2020 and he has extensive knowledge in addressing and street naming and numbering. Additionally, in his spare time, he is also a licensed Zumba instructor and fun entertainer. He loves helping people in their fitness journey but also building a positive community.

We want you to have a lovely time from the start, so no worries if you do not know all the answers to the quiz, some of your team members might. At the same time this is a great opportunity for you to build new connections and share your work amongst some of the fantastic innovators within the field of addressing, power of location and so much more.
