"We are happy to once again be catching up with Alumni and colleagues in the Geospatial industry at GEOBusiness. This exhibition is an opportunity to find out about trends in the sector, make new connections and to raise awareness of our research and degree programmes. So far today we have re-connected with graduates old and new who are operating in a range of sectors within the industry.
