Welcome to GIS4SmartGrid 2020
The 3rd annual GIS4SmartGrid conference will draw together Heads of GIS from TSOs and DSOs across Europe for 3 intensive days of use-cases to enable your GIS implementation, integration and upgrade.
You will gain insights and successful use-cases from integration and implementation projects, gather new technology innovation ideas and create new connections within the GIS community. With 14+ utility case-studies presented by industry leaders, this event provides the only platform for creating your roadmap to 100% Next-Gen GIS integration throughout your organisation.
Benchmark your GIS practices against Europe’s leading utilities and actionable tools and strategies on innovations within GIS integration, data management, ensuring interoperability, new tools and technologies and much more.
Save €400 on delegate places and €2000 on exhibition spaces.
