Geo Connect Asia, in its third edition in 2023, is set to return to a normal meeting environment in 15-16 March at Singapore's Sands Expo & Convention Centre to combine an exhibition of more than 100 companies and a series of conferences.

The event first debuted in Singapore in 2021 as a hybrid show, followed by a largely in-person format in 2022 enhanced by a virtual component.

Organised by Montgomery Asia, Geo Connect Asia incorporates Digital Construction Asia and is co-located with the inaugural Drones Asia Show. The combined event in 2023 is expected to attract more than 3000 delegates and visitors from Singapore and overseas.

Supported by the Singapore Land Authority, Geo Connect Asia is positioned as a platform for Southeast Asia’s governments, businesses and not-for-profit sectors to bring geospatial, locational intelligence and remote sensing into the mainstream.

The Main Stage Conference theme, 'Advancing sustainable & resilient geospatial solutions for an interconnected world', reflects the need to respond to sustainability goals with the pressing challenges associated with climate change, urban growth and food security.

In addition to the main conference, the Digital Underground Connect Expert Stage returns with the title Advancing Subsurface Utility Mapping for Construction and Asset Management.

A second Expert Stage runs with the theme 'A data driven roadmap for measuring sustainability in the construction world'; a third Expert Stage on road and rail infrastructure is in formation.

The event will be supported with the co-location of the UNGGIM seminar, titled 'Geo-enabled effective land administration', which is co-organised by the United Nations Expert Group on Land Administration and Management (UN-EG-LAM) and the UN-GGIM-AP Working Group 2 on Cadastre and Land Management.

Geo Connect Asia 2023 has received the support of more than 30 industry organisations, and welcomes Trimble as Platinum Sponsor for the third consecutive event and Topcon as a Silver Sponsor for the first time at the event.
