Dynamic conference programme receives CPD accreditation

The SA GeoTech 2019 conference programme has received continuous professional development (CPD) accreditation from the geospatial industry’s governing body, the South African Geomatics Council (SAGC).

The two day geospatial conference programme (which is worth 2 CPD points – one for each day) has been carefully designed to promote knowledge sharing and advance the profession. Themed “Geo-tech to drive new business opportunities and economic growth,” it will bring together geospatial professionals from various domains.

Besides interesting, insightful and compelling presentations, delegates can also look forward to a BIM workshop. The BIM for Leaders Master Class Workshop will be presented by The BIM Academy Africa. The intensive workshop will give managers and other interested persons a complete lowdown of building information modelling (BIM) with geographic information systems (GIS). It is a software agnostic workshop, accredited by CanBIM (Canada BIM Council) and White Frog, and is endorsed by the Northumbria University Newcastle.

The workshop will help participants get to grips with the information models, processes and delivery methods required to make an impact in their BIM careers. BIM must speak to everyone’s needs, and requires an approach that facilitates learning with a bigger picture of collaborative information models in mind.

The conference’s accompanying exhibition, which features leading companies, is just as important, as it exposes attendees to the latest technologies and in some cases even offers hands-on demonstrations of these technologies, along with the opportunity to ask further questions and discuss specific applications and use cases.

The event will also feature a cocktail networking session to offer delegates a chance to socialise with their peers, create new relationships and establish grounds for potential partnerships and more.
