Aurora, Colo. - The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is pleased to announce that attendance for its 2009 GIS for Oil & Gas Calgary Conference saw a slight increase in registration, going from 109 attendees in 2008 to 110 in 2009. The event was held at the Calgary Marriott Hotel in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Nov. 3-4, and will move to September in 2010.

The event included 16 technical sessions, two keynote sessions, and a closing panel focused on Canada’s oil sands.

“By working with the great talent on the 2009 GIS for Oil & Gas Calgary Conference Advisory Group, we were able to create an extremely impressive program this year,” said Robert M. Samborski, GITA’s executive director. “It also says a lot that we didn’t see a drop in attendance during this economy. That is great sign for this event, GITA, and the Canadian energy economy.”

GITA extends its thanks to the 2009 event sponsors: M.J. Harden; Blue Marble Geographics; CartoPac Field Solutions; ITT Corporation; and Oil Sands Review. Attendees also enjoyed visiting with six table top exhibitors: AltaLIS Ltd.; Cansel Survey Equipment; Global Information Systems; ITT Corporation; Korem; and Safe Software.

The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is the professional association and leading advocate for anyone using geospatial technology to help operate, maintain, and protect the infrastructure, which includes organizations such as utilities, telecommunication companies, and the public sector. Through industry leading conferences-along with research initiatives, chapters, membership, and other programs-GITA provides education and professional best practices. Visit GITA on the Web at
