The Locate Conference (Locate16) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) and will be held 12-14 April 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Locate16 is open to all industries and welcomes the ongoing discussion of how technology developed within the spatial and surveying communities can be used to improve the way we work, live and play in smarter societies.
The Conference program will focus on how the spatial and surveying industries are essential to our prosperity, protection, sustainability and ability to grow (build).
The Exhibition (Market Day) is designed to introduce the latest technology and services of the spatial and surveying industries to end-users; encourage networking for greater collaboration amongst organisations; and provide an opportunity for educators, students and the public to meet professionals working in the industry.
The Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) will be held during Locate16 and celebrates the achievements of our industries over the past year with awards delivered by the host organisations: SIBA, SSSI, and GITA.
