Locate: Our National Conference


Locate is the Geospatial Council of Australia’s national conference. This successful annual event attracts over 700 delegates from across the geospatial industry, from surveying, to GIS, to earth observation, allied industries and more.

As Australia’s premier geospatial event, Locate provides both our members and the broader geospatial community a fantastic opportunity to come together to learn about the latest trends and applications in geospatial science, see the newest technologies in our exhibition and create meaningful connections with like minded professionals.

The conference also provides the opportunity to celebrate the best and brightest in our industry, with the oceanic winners of the Geospatial Excellence Awards announced at the gala dinner each year.

Whether you are an early career professional just starting out in the geospatial industry, a seasoned practitioner or a geospatial business owner/leader, the Locate conference offers something for all and is must on your event calendar for the year.

The event moves around major cities across the country and in 2024, Locate is being held in Sydney from Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 May.
