Mapping the strategic evolution of GIS in the Middle East

The 2nd GIS Forum MENA is just around the corner and we are excited to find ourselves right in the middle of a ‘strategic GIS evolution’ in the Middle East where many entities are looking to leverage the strength of GIS to support strategic decision making.

No more display this evolutionary process than the likes of Abu Dhabi Education Council, Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, Rural Areas Electricity Company of Oman and Kuwait Oil Company. The result is that they have not only procured support from senior management for GIS initiatives but have also managed to secure additional investment for real projects and continued development.

We are excited to have representatives from these entities attend and present at the Forum this year to share there journey with us.

If you want to be part of this strategic evolution, be sure to book your seat today as registrations close soon. Visit the registration page or speak to us at +971 4 364 2975 or via for special rates and group bookings.
