  • 2. Dear GIS Professional, Ensure effective integration of GIS with your asset management system to improve operational efficiency and secure data integrity GIS, due to its accuracy and reliability has become a core element for the efficient execution of many Utility projects. Currently, Governments and Utilities around the world are incorporating GIS into different phases of their infrastructure life-cycle. Further, instead of using GIS as a stand-alone system, Utilities are integrating it into their existing IT infrastructure. However, certain factors like database integration are inhibiting the growth of GIS in Utilities. These issues need to be addressed to keep this industry growing. It is my pleasure to announce the first European Utilities Uncovered Europe Summit, which will uncover the most advanced strategies and technologies for an effective Geographical Information System in the Utilities and Government sectors, and help you achieve operational efficiency and secure data integrity. Hearing experts from across the sector will allow for an interactive improvement opportunity, where you can hear from the best in the business on how they integrate GIS in an innovative and cost-effective way. The agenda will focus on the key questions you need addressing: Do you know how to accurately and efficiently integrate GIS with your asset management system? Are you on track with the most innovative strategies that can secure your data integrity? Do you know how to streamline dataflow and enable effective interoperability? The conference agenda was developed using research directly from GIS and Operational Managers as well as Information Technology Managers from Utility companies and Local Government Authorities. Case studies from utilities companies and local councils from across Europe combined with expert research presentations will demonstrate not only what is being done now, but also where GIS is heading – Mark the date in your diary now: 8th - 9th March 2011. Quite simply this is the must attend GIS event of the year. Avoid the wait list: places are limited and early registration is highly recommended. Sign up before 26th November 2010 to save up to £350! www.utilitiesuncovered.com I look forward to meeting you in London, Best regards, Sladjana Franovic Conference Director IQPC International For your booking enquiries you can email us now: enquire@iqpc.co.uk Top 5 reasons to attend Utilities Uncovered Europe 2011 Complete exposure to decision- makers from utility companies and local councils from across Europe Unrivalled networking opportunities that allow you vital face-to-face interaction with your industry peers Get hands-on-insight through interactive workshops with key opinion leaders in the utilities and local government sector Receive the very best business intelligence – we have carefully selected each member of our speaker faculty to ensure that you hear from only the thought- leaders and pioneers in Utilities We actively maintain a reduced vendor ratio, which creates a more intimate environment for networking and knowledge sharing P.S.
