2023 NSW Geospatial Conference & Awards Reception


NOTE: the Excellence Awards dinner has been replaced by an Awards Reception, included for all conference attendees.

All NSW geospatial professionals are invited to join us for our annual conference, this year taking place at the Parkroyal Parramatta on Thursday 24 August.

The event promises to be a great opportunity for people from all fields of geospatial science to learn, connect and network. The conference sessions will be immediately followed by the NSW Geospatial Excellence Awards Reception.


The program for the conference is now available.  With a diverse range of speakers presenting on topics such as LiDAR, geographic place naming, innovative techniques, skills shortages and more, we hope you will agree it’s an event on the geospatial calendar not to be missed!



The conference has recently been assessed for BOSSI CPD points! See below for details.

  • Cadastral: 0.5 points 
  • Survey Practice: 5.5 points
  •  Code: BOSSI24_E008

For those NSW professionals who hold Geospatial Council ESP-AP or Hydrography certification, this event is allocated six (6) GCA CPD points.


Registration offers great value including all sessions, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, as well as drinks and canapes to follow at the Awards Reception.

Generous discounts are available for GCA members, so register now below.
