GBS were again proud to have been the platinum sponsor for this year’s Conference held in Auckland during August 2016. We worked closely with Eagle to ensure that the Conference was a success for us, and of course for the users generally. So we thank Eagle and their staff for their efforts in making this a very good Conference. This event cracked the 500 mark in attendees which truly makes it the largest gathering of geospatial professionals, accompanied by IT and key organisational people. For us, it was a success because of the amount and quality of conversations we got to have across a diverse group. Notwithstanding that we managed to get front and centre via Tony’s (slightly left field) opening presentation about who GBS are on the Monday, Lisa’s compelling address on busting the myth that projects don’t come in on time and on budget, and Harley’s key note presentation on the Wednesday about exponential technology change and what that means for you. It was a great event and we largely managed to behave ourselves!
