GIS Events in Salzburg

GI_Salzburg LogoLocation matters! Salzburg is a premium city for conferences and events. Our philosophy is to be ‘green and smart’ about the events that we organise. We focus on the detail to ensure that we deliver events that offer excellent atmosphere, learning and networking opportunities to our communities.

Every year in July, Z_GIS organizes the “GI_Salzburg”. Formerly known as AGIT & GI_Forum, two successful Geoinformatic conferences with a 30+-year history, GI_Salzburg will continue to be known as the meeting place for Geoinformatics communities and thus as a hub for professional exchange, further education, innovation and quite simply, as a creative milieu.
