MAPPS Summer Conference Program Announced

MAPPS, the association for private sector geospatial firms, announced its program for the 2013 Summer Conference to be held July 22-26 at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine.

The conference will focus on business, management, marketing, technical, policy and workforce issues relevant to the geospatial market. The agenda is designed by and for private geospatial firm principals, owners, partners and senior professionals.

Topics include a status update on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) regulations and sensors, marketing and reputation management in social media, privacy regulations, coastal modeling and programs and the status of implementation of the highway bill (MAP-21), among other relevant presentations.

"The program touches on all aspects of the geospatial market including new technologies, workforce development, marketing and business opportunities, that impact our businesses on a daily basis," said Mike Tully of Aerial Services in Cedar Falls, Iowa, the program committee chairman.

The conference will begin with a keynote address from Paul LePage, governor of Maine. The conference will conclude with a presentation by Boston Consulting Group on a report the firm conducted highlighting the annual revenue generated by the geospatial market, which reaches nearly $75 billion and drives more than $1.6 trillion in economic activity in the United States.

Intermixed with the educational sessions, the program includes networking events to build teaming relationships and partnerships, a cornerstone of MAPPS conferences.

"MAPPS meetings allow information to be shared about markets, technologies, and business practices among the professionals that make up the leading firms in the geospatial profession," said John Palatiello, executive director. "Our conferences have become a venue for senior officials to collaborate and exchange ideas on best practices, improve their knowledge base on topics that impact their business on a daily basis while also expanding business partnerships."
