MapInfo Forum Australia Tour Starts Next Week

This Forum, unlike previous MapInfo Forums, is structured around direct feedback from our MapInfo community.  There are more cities being visited, a much greater emphasis being placed on user presentations, and an opportunity for everyone to network with peers. We also have an impressive speaker line-up this year. Organisations like Queensland Translink, Pfizer, Coles and Australian Koala Foundation are just some of the MapInfo community sharing their experiences. 

“We are proud of our speaker line-up this year”, says Simon Bird, General Manager of Pitney Bowes Software Australia and New Zealand.  “We want to do everything we can to support our vibrant MapInfo community in Australia”.

Also included in the program are presentations from Pitney Bowes on the vision and strategy of the Location Intelligence portfolio; including products like MapInfo Professional and Spectrum Spatial. 

MapInfo Forum 2013 will cover:

  • What’s new and coming in the MapInfo suite
  • Customer case study presentations
  • Tips n’ tricks to get more from the technology
  • Interactive technology focused breakout streams

The eight Australian locations being visited include:

  • Brisbane, 15th October 2013
  • Sydney, 16th October 2013
  • Melbourne, 17th October 2013
  • Canberra, 18th October 2013
  • Hobart, 12th November 2013
  • Adelaide, 13th November 2013
  • Darwin, 19th November 2013
  • Perth March/April 2014

Those seeking GIS certification will also be pleased to hear that SSSI members can earn 5 CPD points for attending this event.
