European LiDAR Mapping Forum Expands Floor Plan due to Demand

September 13, 2011

The organisers of the 2nd European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) to be held in Salzburg, Austria from November 29-30, have sold out of exhibit stands just three months after the launch of the event. Due to demand the organisers have negotiated further exhibit space at the venue to house more exhibitors all keen to get a slice of the action.

Event Manager Caroline Hobden reports, ‘It is astounding. This event really has taken the industry by storm and we get enquiries on a daily basis about the exhibition, the newly launched conference programme and all the other opportunities to be had at ELMF.’

The recent launch of the 2011 Conference Programme has sparked increased interest in the event. The stir has been generated by a truly international theme where speakers in the international LIDAR community represent nearly 20 countries from all over the world. And with papers entitled ‘Terrestrial Laserscanning & 3D visualisation of the largest ice cave on Earth’, ‘LIDAR Scanning the Equatorial jungle of Central Africa’, ‘Monitoring the outmost islands of Indonesia using Airborne LIDAR Bathymetry’ and ‘Mobile Laser Scanning – railway data collection and automated feature extraction’ you can see why registrations to attend the event are flooding in.

The conference is supported by a Showcase of more than 50 of the world’s leading companies in the LIDAR industry market. Exhibitors include the LIDAR and complimentary sensor manufacturers, survey and mapping companies, data processing, GIS and management specialists and the latest mobile mapping vehicles.

Uniquely, this event is not all about the LIDAR experts, it also for novice operators, their managers and potential purchasers of equipment. There is a full series of learning workshops and demonstrations aimed at providing an understanding of the basic principles and fundamental benefits of LIDAR.

For as little as EUR 1,895 you could snap up one of the newly created stands at ELMF and reap the benefits from the extensive marketing the organisers do in the lead up to the event. And for just EUR 65, you can visit, making it worthwhile to take time out of the office, even for just a day. For further information please contact info@lidarmap.net or go to www.lidarmap.org.
