Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, the 2012 show places a greater emphasis on the needs of the end user, will feature over 25 top speakers and attract over 150 attendees.

The key theme of this year’s conference is centred on the most efficient way to create the best possible product for the B2B industry space. “We are seeing location intelligence being used in just about every sector of society, whether it’s in business or social networking, in government, education, gaming, sports, tourism etc. If you can imagine something where location or maps could be used, it’s going to be out there” said SJ Camarata, Director, ESRI, who spoke at last year’s event.

By bringing together experts from map and data providers and solution providers and combining these with exclusive end user case-studies, Location Intelligence for enterprise provides a specialist forum for all parts of the ecosystem to discuss how to overcome major challenges and profit from Location Intelligence.

Although what really sets this conference apart is the quality of the speakers from some of the US’s top brands. There is a plethora of discussions and debates taking place with some of the biggest thinkers in the industry.

On the first day, the “End-User Super Panel” brings together GIS experts from Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Fedex, Thomson Reuters, and Jones Lang LaSalle.
