People networking on the terrace at SDSC at The Royal Geographical Society.

Having gathered more than 800 attendees over 3 days at our sold-out event in London last year, we're excited to announce our 2024 edition. We’ll bring together Data Science, Advanced Analytics & Geospatial experts from across the globe to discuss the latest trends and innovative use cases across multiple industries.

We’ll look to answer some of the most pressing location-based questions in both the private & public sectors, bringing together a mixture of business and research.
