We very much look forward to working with the AGI and welcoming them to the Committee.’
Anne Kemp, Council Chair of the AGI comments,’ We whole heartedly support the GEO Business event and feel that our involvement will not only help to enhance the programme but it will also offer our members a platform from which to do business with the whole community . I am looking forward to this event that will bring together the entire geospatial industry and by collaborating with other leading organisations like the TSA, RICS and ICES there will be a real sense of unity.’
