“Our Geospatial industries have many threats and opportunities before them and one of the best ways to help develop our future profession is through collaboration and knowledge transfer. There are numerous geo specific conferences and events around the world but we believe by reaching out to kindred sectors such as housing, planning, technologists and future trendsetters the forthcoming GIM Summit is taking a tentative but brave step in this direction. It’s time to start a serious conversation with our client base and we believe the GIM Summit can help to provide this platform. RICS has no hesitation in supporting and taking part in this ground breaking event. Fortune always favours the brave.”
