2022 Conference Review

AIMS 2022 Shane WatsonWhat a great conference we had at the Royal Pines on the Gold Coast. It was wonderful to see so many attendees and sponsors attend the event.  If was very clear that everyone was excited to reconnect after our pause during the pandemic.

With over 150 conference registrations, 30 sponsorship registrations and 208 in attendance at our conference dinner it was one of our best events.

I must thank Duncan, Peter for convening the conference and Hazel and Dean from Conference Images for the excellent work they did to pull it all together. Also, I must thank all the people that presented papers during the conference.

As previously mentioned, this conference was also one of our best with the most sponsorship support, we have ever had. I would like to thank all the following sponsors for their continued support and welcome the new sponsors to our organisation:

  • CR Kennedy
  • AAM
  • Deswik
  • Hexagon Geosystems
  • Maptek
  • Position Partners
  • UPG
  • Carlson Software Australia Pty Ltd
  • Geosight
  • Aerometrex

  • GeoCue Australia
  • GeoMotion
  • Outline Imagery

This year we decided to engage a professional photographer for the event and the photo’s and video content is available on our website and they look great.

Finally thank you to everyone that attended the conference and all our supporters. For myself it was great to finally be able to travel across and catchup with everyone on the East Coast. I look forward to catching up with everyone again in the future.
