The events and activities enabled participating organizations to promote their capabilities, forge partnerships, conclude deals and announce new initiatives.

Speakers at this year’s event are carefully chosen specialists in the topics of Earth observation and its various intersections. The line-up includes world-class leaders Rebecca Moore, Director at Google Earth; Prof. Gilberto Camara, Secretariat Director at GEO; and Mmboneni Muofhe, Deputy Director-General: Technology Innovation @ Department of Science and Technology and GEO Co-Chair; Andiswa Mlisa, Managing Director of Earth Observation Directorate at the South African National Space Agency (SANSA).
