Everything happens somewhere - Location 2012 conference opens for registrations

11 April 2012

IT and business-people looking to grow their businesses have been challenged to bring their imagination to an event focusing on providing services and making a profit from location data and mapping.

Based on the idea that everything happens somewhere, the conference will look at how business can profit from location information from selling services to customers to making more cost-efficient and effective business decisions.

Co-ordinated by national mapping agency Ordnance Survey, the one-day conference will bring together a wide range of location data service providers and others in the IT and GIS (Geographical Information System) world to show how businesses can make profitable business decisions using geographic information.

The event called ‘Location 2012 – Profit from mapping and location data’ will be held on Tuesday 8 May at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre near Reading. Interested business people can find out more and register for free at www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/location2012

Location 2012 is a unique opportunity for businesses to discover how to take the most detailed, accurate and up-to-date location data available and use it to deliver new services and new value to customers.

Visionary speakers from Microsoft, Experian, Ordnance Survey and others will show how major corporations have already gained significant competitive advantage by using Location Intelligence.

Latest news

Ordnance Survey has begun an exciting new project that sees 15 people take on the challenge of making us a more outdoorsy and adventurous nation.

Outdoors enthusiasts can build impressive collections of Ordnance Survey maps, but it often means they’re not using the most up-to-date maps to get outside and explore Britain. Up until 20 March, OS is offering avid explorers the chance to return their old maps and receive money off new map purchases in return.
