PSMA Annual Conference 2017: Focus on the future

The PSMA User Representative Group (PURG) is looking forward to seeing you at this year’s Annual Conference, taking place on Thursday 16 March 2017 at Congress Centre, London.

The conference, free for all members of the public sector, will focus on transformation in the coming years, as we anticipate that people will find new and innovative uses for PSMA data.

We’ll be looking at the geospatial needs of the public sector going forward, and what PURG, Ordnance Survey and Partners can do to meet those needs.

You know better than anyone that close cooperation - both within the public sector and between companies delivering services to the public on your behalf - is essential. Reduced funding, tighter regulation and shifting demand patterns mean it’s even more important to access accurate, consistent and comprehensive information about your customers, your assets, and the surrounding environment.

Location data is the critical component needed to deliver effective new services, capabilities and operations that drive real change for service users.

At the conference, you’ll hear from industry experts and innovators about how the public sector are dealing with these real challenges. You’ll also be involved in thought-provoking interactive streams lead by the OS team, and have access to an exhibition area to hear the latest from other OS partners including Astun Technology Ltd, Geographers’ A-Z Map Company, Basemap, Bluesky International Ltd, Cadcorp, Emapsite, Europa Technologies, GetMapping, Higher Mapping Solutions, Landmark, miso, SCISYS and GeoPlace.
