AGI is extremely pleased to be sponsoring this year’s WhereCampEU drinks and social evening.
Being a long-time organiser of geo-gatherings, we know that great socialising, relaxing and networking is a vital part of an event’s proceedings and the delegate’s enjoyment.
AGI is the UK membership body for all with an interest in geographic information and its associated technologies. We’ve been around for 21 years and have interests and members from all over, including public sector, third sector, academia and private industry. Although administered by a professional office, the AGI’s direction and policy is steered by members for the benefit of its members and the wider UK geocommunity.
We’re seeing a lot of great things happening in the world of geo and significant parts of this involve new and innovative individuals and companies entering the market. AGI is keen to help out and be relevant to new entrants and innovators, just as much as it has been to other parts of the UK geocommunity over the last two decades. We all have a lot to gain from each other, often sharing common interests, opportunities and even challenges. Sometimes, particularly when dealing with government, it can be effective to speak as one rather than many.
Most recently AGI ran the free W3G ‘unconference’ event alongside our annual AGI GeoCommunity conference with help from friends that have also played a part in WhereCampEU. It is now very welcome to have this opportunity to support WhereCampEU, to thank you all for booking to attending this “the geo unconference for Europe”, and to say “cheers, have a geo-beer on the AGI!”
