INTERGEO live returns! With a comprehensive security strategy based on 3G rules, INTERGEO will take place in Hannover this year. The event will also be broadcast digitally for those at home. From the 21st – 23rd of September 2021, 250 EXPO companies, plus numerous national and international SPEAKERS at the STAGE and CONFERENCE, are looking forward to your visit!

INTERGEO 2021 will take place live in Hannover, observing the 3G rules (vaccinated, recovered, or tested). Following the motto “inspiration for a smarter world”, the event will address both current and future-orientated topics. An onsite health and hygiene station will be in full function, including a testing portal, guaranteeing the safe implementation of the live event. In addition, INTERGEO will also take place online as a digital event. Daniel Katzer, Head of Expo & Conference at HINTE GmbH, has a clear message after a year of online-only events: “Come to Hannover. Enjoy the intensity of the interaction and the power of face-to-face experiences. Visitors can expect a broad range of products and solutions at the EXPO and a varied international programme at the CONFERENCE and INTERGEO STAGE.”


The conference will approach questions on sustainability and “Green data for all”. Technology trends such as machine learning and virtual reality, a focus on on Galileo and Precise Point Positioning in the field of positioning, but also autonomous driving and visualisation methods will be the main focal points. “It’s about digitalisation in cities, changed mobility and citizen participation. Further development and innovations in Building Information Modelling (BIM) are also topics, as well as the handling of large amounts of data,” says Christiane Salbach, Managing Director of DVW GmbH and member of the Executive Committee of the organiser DVW e.V. (German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management). Furthermore, current trends in the field of robotics and UAVuser-generated geo-information and artificial intelligence geo-applications will be discussed.


At EXPO, international exhibitors show their products and solutions ‘for a smarter world’. “They will exhibit drones and the latest surveying equipment, present geo-information solutions and software for construction and infrastructure. Big players will be onsite alongside start-ups. After a year of virtual INTERGEO, EXPO is once again well on its way to positioning itself internationally,” says Daniel Katzer.


Digitalisation has gained further momentum due to the Corona virus. Simultaneously, climate change and environmental threats are also becoming more apparent. Geospatial data and information are increasingly taking centre stage in solutions as indispensable tools for people and the environment. “Geo-information is increasingly becoming a common language on the basis of which we can better understand the Earth and thus act sustainably,” says Christiane Salbach. Visitors to EXPO and CONFERENCE come from core sectors such as environment, transport or urban planning management, as well as companies and scientists from sectors such as logistics, automotive, construction and housing, media, and health. “Whether in the modelling of flood scenarios, optimised logistics routes or autonomous driving, intelligent urban planning or on construction sites – many industries work with cross- and multi-networked geo-information,” Salbach continues.

INTERGEO is thankfully finally able to offer another live opportunity for this high degree of networking – a lively platform for exchange within the specialist disciplines of geodesy and geo-information – and far beyond.

Christiane Salbach offers you to “Experience the fascination of a live event again. Come to Hannover. After a year’s break, we all need the personal experience again – the sponsors and exhibitors as well as speakers and presenters are looking forward to opening the doors to the exhibition halls in Hannover with great anticipation and expectation. Be there when the first live geo-information event (since Corona-related restrictions) opens its gates!
