This year will be the 20th anniversary of the Intergeo. Intergeo is the biggest conference and trade fair for geodesy, cartography and geoinformatics. It will start on the 7th of October in my lovely hometown Berlin. During three days approx. 15000 visitors and exhibitors from more than 90 countries will attend this conference. We will visit as well.

Intergeo: Where

The venue will take place at the Messe / trade fair of Berlin. It is located in the western part of the city:

When you would like to visit, it will be best to take the Berlin S-Bahn. The station Messe-Nord/ ICC is directly located at the S-Bahn ring of the city so you are good to sleep in Wedding or Tempelhof (which are not that asked by tourists and so far a bit cheaper)as you will reach the station in 15-20min by train. The preferred entrance is located at the station Messe-Süd which is reached by trains of the lines S75 and S5 using the East-West main axis. A 2hr. ticket for the train is 2.60€.

Intergeo: Prices

Unfortunately the times of early bird tickets is gone. A day pass starts at 10€ for individuals and goes up till 60€ for a “week pass” which is three days. You can purchase your tickets ahead using this link. I think the prices are quite fair and it’s a good investment also for Geo-students as they can meet the players of the game and make some first contacts. There will be an extra event for job seekers called jobSHAKER.

Update (by Simon): If you like to get a free day pass you can register in a timeslot to participate in the Jobshaker-Event and you’ll get a free voucher.

Intergeo: Let’s Meet

We will come to Intergeo to get to know our (potential) audience. So if you see us, let’s talk about your experiences and opinions. We would like to get an insight in your motivation to visit the Intergeo. You will notice us by our famous digital-geography.com T-Shirts. Furthermore we plan to organize a sit-together with students and companies/representatives who are interested in GIS@Web. No, I personally don’t have a schedule neither a plan. I just have the idea of getting to know different and interesting people.
