Geospatial World Forum is the global flagship event produced and organized by Geospatial Media and Communications. The conference has successfully highlighted the true potential of geospatial technology across multiple sectors and industries for over a decade. It is also known for being one of the most informative and sought-after international forums in the geospatial industry.

Geospatial World Forum 2018 will establish the connection between geospatial technology and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), a technology revolution, which will transform the way the world functions. The event will transport you to the era of 4IR through informative sessions and stimulating discussions. The platform will also host four crucial events – GeoBuiz Summit, Location World , GeoIntelligence and Geo4SDGs.

The event is scheduled to take place from January 16th-19th, 2018, in Hyderabad, India.


Our future is digital! Digitization is helping businesses all around the world to streamline and automate all processes. Digital tools and technologies are profoundly affecting the way business is being conducted today. This also means that citizens will demand for smarter infrastructure, smarter utilities, smarter transportation and ultimately smarter living.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution means more than just technology. It calls for a transformation of our entire ecosystem. Geospatial and location technologies are playing a key role in this. With geospatial sensors being deployed everywhere and spatial data becoming big data through its volume and velocity, Geo4IR will be a wave that the geospatial industry won’t be able to miss out on.

The World Economic Forum helped the world understand the relevance of 4IR, and how it is going to transform the society and the world economy. Geospatial World Forum 2018 is going to highlight how geospatial industry is going to get remodeled.

GeoBuiz Summit 2018

Geospatial Business collaboration and development will be on the agenda again. Picking up from the success of event in 2017, the C-Level Summit will take important business discussions to another level.

Location World 2018

Location is surely on the driver’s seat. Businesses like B2B, B2C, B2G, etc., are riding on it. We witnessed Location World going big during 2017, and we will see it again this year.


Sustainable Development Agenda is on priority at GWF 2018. Geo4SDGs, a two-day event, which is being organized in collaboration with multi-lateral and global developmental agencies, will be talking on how they are taking advantage in areas of governance and sustainable development.


Our flagship event GeoIntelligence, targeted for the defence and security community saw a huge success during 2016 and is making the waves in 2017. We’re bringing it back to you in 2018, so get ready for it.
