Connecting People and Places 2024

Tuesday 21 May

Time: 09:00-17:30 | Manchester United Football Club

Registration is now open for this year’s GeoPlace annual conference, which takes place on 21 May at Manchester United Football Club. 

Building useful services around people and communities needs reliable and up-to-date data. Knowing where change is taking place, where houses are being built, where communities are developing and where the infrastructure needs to be built in support needs dependable and accurate geographic data. Location data, and particularly address and street data, with their associated UPRNs and USRNs is the magic ingredients that connect services to people to places.

GeoPlace’s conference will showcase inspirational examples and case studies to show just how address and street data is already helping to address those challenges. Experts will share the evidence that shows how accurate location data delivers life-changing outcomes - see the full agenda and speaker line up here:

  • Health – better-integrated data that's reducing costs to provide 'Healthy Homes'
  • Digitising the home-moving process – more compliance, less stress, less risk, less cost, more surety
  • Household energy – more-accurate analysis that accelerates the green agenda and saves money for residents
  • Housing – new-builds, to nurturing connections throughout the property life-cycle
  • Connectivity – building the resilient and lighting fast full-fibre networks that homes and businesses need
  • Reducing congestion – improving air quality, enhancing the overall reliability and effectiveness of our highways networks, both above and underground.

Be inspired too, by the success of 3D cities - once a dream, but now a reality in the improvements to local authority planning.

Sessions explore some of society’s biggest challenges, and the use of location data that's accelerating positive change. But it will also open up the technical side of managing the UK’s address and street data – the all-important, authoritative information needed to underpin those better decisions, The conference is supported by suppliers and industry bodies ready to show you how to utilise this data. Find out more information about the event
