If you had five minutes in front of an audience of your peers and leaders in the geospatial industry, what would you say? How would you blow their minds? Well now is your chance!! Ignite Spatial NoCo is a night of enlightening presentations with a geo-spatial twist. Each presentation has 20 slides that automatically advance after 15 seconds which gives you 5 minutes to be a hero. Ignite is about ideas. Ideas can change the world. Take 5 minutes to add to the ‘Geo Spatial Global Consciousness’. If you have a passion about the geoglobal community bring it to share.
Again please get your submission in early as we only have 14 slots. They will go fast! Make sure you review some examples from other Ignite events to get a good idea on how it works and what makes the most successful Ignite presentation.
