We often talk about how quickly things change with lidar, remote sensing solutions and 3D technologies, but over the past two years, it seems the entire world has begun to move at this rapid pace. Or faster.
Entire industries have made shifts or taken steps in months that would have taken years or even decades in “normal” times. That very concept is indicative of how much has changed though, as it wasn’t too long ago that you heard people talk about everything “getting back to normal.” The thing is, “normal” has changed, so it’s not really about looking backward to recreate anything we had been doing, but moving forward to define something new.
That perspective is ultimately the reason why Geo Week is set to remain an in-person event, taking place February 6-8 in Denver, Colorado. Our team has been carefully following news around the Omicron variant and while it has caused us to update our onsite health and safety measures, it hasn’t changed our commitment to bringing the industry together to connect in person.
That coming together is especially critical this year, as the Geo Week Conference umbrella pulls together the people, innovations and communities that previously comprised the International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF), SPAR 3D Expo & Conference and AEC Next. Not too long ago, I was at a live event and used the opportunity to look back on these events and forward to Geo Week. You can check it out below but that look back is just a hint of what’s store for the event and all of these communities as we move forward.
Looking forward to seeing you in Denver, so please be sure to connect with any member of our team in the meantime and especially at Geo Week!
