26 – 28 September 2017, Berlin
Smart geoinformation and services are key engines for economic and management innovation, and are essential for smart cities and their stakeholders. The implementation of geodata permeates the entire economy: from the energy industry and the traffic/transport/logistics sector to the construction and real estate industries, geo-referenced data is created and utilized.
INTERGEO has served as a meet-up for the geo-IT industry for many years, and has become the leading international trade show for geodesy, geoinformation, and land management. In 2016, the trade show attracted 531 exhibitors from 33 countries, 17,037 industry visitors from over 100 countries, and 1,389 convention participants (data as of 2016). The community continues to grow and is becoming more international from year to year.
Geo-expertise from the capital region
The German capital region is traditionally represented at INTERGEO by a joint company stand. Last year saw participation by 8 regional companies as well as cooperative networks of companies and institutions of higher education for collaborative research and testing of new technologies (3D-Punktwolke, SiBeL, ProWear).
Smart City Solutions
Last year for the first time, INTERGEO offered the Smart City Solutions (SCS) topic platform, with an exhibitors' area and specialist forum, at which the Smart City Berlin was represented as an Early Mover. Innovative start-ups from the German capital had the opportunity to present their solutions for smart cities in front of a very interested specialist public. We will be onsite with exciting projects again in 2017.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) – inconceivable without geodata
In BIM, the processes of planning, construction, operation, rebuilding and demolition are transferred into the digital world. Digital, three-dimensional building models form a synchronized integration platform for the consistent creation, management, networking and transparent transfer of relevant information across the entire lifecycle of a construction project. The close integration of BIM and GIS technology will be an ever more important topic in the industry in the future: keyword "GEOBIM". Here, 3D models of the BIM world are put into geographical context – this step opens up a variety of new possibilities with regard to the planning, viewing and evaluation of planning projects in the geographical context. The INTERGEO convention will give more air to this topic again in 2017. Side events highlight the current situation and perspectives of digitization in the construction industry.
Interaerial Solutions: The most important forum on the topic of drones
As the largest industry platform worldwide, INTERGEO is already the leading trade show in Europe for manufacturers and service providers in the area of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). With its integrated INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS topic platform, INTERGEO is staying abreast of the rapid development in the utilization of UAS. At the same time, the industry is becoming more international, since the application possibilities of UAS and RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) are creating increasing demand worldwide. In 2017, there will once again be exhibition areas and a specialist forum, as well as a flight zone outside.
For the first time, the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) Berlin-Brandenburg is offering an international collaboration exchange for all exhibitors, industry visitors, and convention participants.
With the VIP and delegation service by Berlin Partner, international INTERGEO visitors can also experience all the action live in Berlin and Potsdam after their visit to the trade show. Trade visits to relevant geo-protagonists in the capital region are planned.
