Information for sponsors

What is GISRUK?

The GISRUK conference series is the largest UK GIS conference, established in 1993. GISRUK welcomes delegates from academia, government, commercial and other sectors. The conferences attract those interested in GIS and its applications from all parts of the UK, the EU and beyond. The disciplinary range is broad including, but not limited to, Geography, Geospatial Data Science, Smart Cities, Environmental Science, Ecology, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and Engineering.

GISRUK is run by a committee of volunteers, and receives no funding. As such, we rely upon the kind support of our sponsors to be able to deliver the high-quality conference expected by GISRUK delegates.

Why sponsor GISRUK?

GISRUK has a focus on attracting early career researchers as well as experienced academics and professionals in the geospatial field.
