INTERGEO EXPO and CONFERENCE, the top event of the international geocommunity, will take place 18-20 October 2022 at Messe Essen in Germany. The main topics covered at the conference will be the importance of geoinformation for internal security, monitoring for disaster control and prevention, open data, digital twins alongside their use in construction and housing, mobility, sustainability and climate change, BIM and engineering applications with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), laser scanning and monitoring.
300 international companies from 27 nations are already registered at the EXPO, from innovative young start-ups to international key players such as Autodesk, Esri Inc., Hexagon, Trimble, Topcon and many more. The organizers expect around 500 exhibitors by October.
Practical insights into solutions and products will be provided in the live program at the STAGES. The FLIGHT ZONE in the outdoor area of Messe Essen will show live demonstrations of the latest UAV applications in surveying, agriculture, construction, security and many more. The top-class INTERGEO CONFERENCE will be attended by a large number of experts and decision-makers from industry, administration and science. Federal Minister Nancy Faeser has taken on the patronage.
Live meetings, experiencing innovations and networking atmosphere:
In October, INTERGEO will finally welcome back visitors for face-to-face meetings, exchanges with international companies, innovative start-ups and the leading minds in the industry.
300 international companies from the geo industry have confirmed their participation at the EXPO from 18 to 20 of October in the exhibition halls in Essen.
“All the international key players in the industry will be there. There was no doubt about it – they all want to get back to their customers, to visitors, to the live atmosphere and the power of meetings,” said Prof. Dr-Ing. Hansjörg Kutterer, President of the organizer DVW e.V., Association for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management.
For those who cannot make it, there is still the opportunity to participate remotely: “With our concept, we are optimistic that INTERGEO will return to pre-Covid-19 dimensions,” says Daniel Katzer from the EXPO organizer, Hinte Expo and Conference-GmbH. He expects up to 500 exhibiting companies by the start of the EXPO.
The exhibitors will offer drones, robotics, smart city as well as BIM solutions, geodata, ‘classic’ surveying and many other exciting things.
In addition to the ticket sales for visitors that have already started, registration for new exhibitors is still possible: START-UPS AND YOUNG COMPANIES will receive an EXPO stand, a presentation on the stage and integration into the program. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will cover 60 percent of the costs of participation. SMEs will also receive funding of up to €12,500 this year. The funding includes a subsidy for stand rental and construction.
Digital Twins will receive their big break at the CONFERENCE 2022:
Their use in Building Information Modelling, smart planning and construction as well as mobility will be the focus of the event. There is a lot that goes along with this: the further development of urban data platforms in the context of smart cities and their variety of applications, as well as the use of smart city solutions in terms of innovation and sustainability and a basis for predictions and scenarios in the event of disasters. With the INTERGEO CONFERENCE, the DVW e.V. is fully committed to the solutions that society needs.
The main topics in 2022 are:
- Digital Twins and their value creation
- 4D geodata and Geospatial IoT
- Potentials of remote sensing
- BIM 4.0
- Industrial surveying
- Measurement systems and robotics
- Smart cities and mobility in the context of climate change and sustainability
- Mobile mapping
- Web services and GeoIT in disaster relief
- Spatial reference and positioning
- Earth observation and Galileo
Hansjörg Kutterer points out the high innovative power of the industry: “We are experiencing high dynamics in segments such as mobility, environment and sustainability, climate protection and urbanization. Geo-IT has positioned itself as a solution provider for these topics. Problem solving without Geo-IT is unthinkable in these subject areas. Come to Essen on the 18th to 20th of October and visit INTERGEO EXPO and CONFERENCE. It’s worth it.”
Federal Minister Nancy Faeser is patron of INTERGEO
Nancy Faeser, the Federal Minister of the Interior, will be the patron of INTERGEO 2022 in Essen. The Federal Ministry of the Interior has been the permanent patron of INTERGEO since 2010. This was an important and forward-looking signal for the professional community, the economy and for geoinformation as a whole.
