Geo Slam: Geomarketing, Practical Knowledge & Trends in a Nutshell
In the Geo Slam, experts give insights into their work and share their vision for geomarketing. The Geo Slam format is based on the Science Slam format, which aims to explain complex content in an understandable manner and to get to the point in a short amount of time. The Geo Slam takes place in the morning.
The Knowledge Café: Interactive Workshops
The Knowledge Café is an opportunity for an intensive exchange of knowledge and an ideal opportunity to network. The interactive format in small groups offers 8 workshops that are dedicated to different topics. A keynote speech is the starting point for a lively and intensive discussion that is certain to provide new insights and eye-openers for your everyday practice. During the registration, you can select 2 Knowledge Cafés that you would like to attend.
Networking Par Excellence
The geomarketing event offers you plenty of opportunities for networking. The day before Knowledge Day, you can take part in an interesting evening event in which you not only get to know Munich or Vienna better, but also the other participants. On the day of the geomarketing event itself, the shared buffet and lunch break are the ideal opportunity to continue your networking.
Decision-Makers and Users from the Geomarketing and GIS Industries Have Already Been Guests
Data knows no boundaries, and neither does our Knowledge Day! Our renowned geomarketing event regularly brings the German-speaking geomarketing community together in one place. This promotes international contacts and encourages people to broaden their horizons.
This is What Our Visitors Had to Say
“I think it’s important to talk to users from other industries and then think about how to adapt their ideas for my own needs. There was even more of that in 2019 thanks to the talks with the Austrians, so the concept has flourished. I missed the city tour the evening before, but I was able to join everyone at the wine tavern. It served as a kind of ice breaker where you could make initial contact, making networking even easier.” René Abicht, Sommer & Goßmann Media-Management GmbH (Aschaffenburg)
“For me it was a very good mix of lectures and exchange in small groups. The Café tables were varied and exciting, because you could talk to other companies and get to know the participants better. I am taking home several business cards as well as specific tips for QGIS applications.” Kerstin Adensamer, Vienna Chamber of Commerce
“Knowledge Day always provides an exciting exchange on actual topics in the geo field. Again today, we have already had a couple of eye-openers. You can also see from other WIGeoGIS customers that you can use WebGIS in a variety of ways for both location planning and area planning. So you really can get some new inspiration here.” Nato Clems, CLAAS KGaA mbH (Harsewinkel)
“I was in Munich last year and will definitely come back again. You get ideas and inputs for your own projects and how to use the GIS system, as well as gaining completely new perspectives. I would have liked more time at the Café tables.” Patrick Gondek, Lensing-Wolff Pressevertriebsgesellschaft mbH (Dortmund)
