The numbers indicate Intergeo 2013 will be a big deal.

Organizers expect 16,000 people from 80 countries to attend the event in Essen, Germany, on Oct. 8-10, with approximately 500 exhibitors displaying 600 products.

Billed as the “world’s leading conference trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management” on its website, the event will focus on the changes in the world’s economic and political structures.

 “The trade fair and conference will be focusing this year very closely on the key socio-political issues,” Karl-Friedrich Thone, the president of the German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management, said in a video posted on the Intergeo website.

Other topics of Intergeo 2013 are urban development, the energy revolution and international networking.

The conference also will focus on recruiting students to the geospatial profession. Jobshaker, designed to boost interest in the profession, will take place over two days of the event at the Trend and Media Forum.
