Nuremberg, September 27-29: Intergeo, a trade fair for geo-information

Intergeo is a leading event in the world-market for geo-information and land management issues that now permeates many areas of industry, business and society itself. Intergeo, which takes place in late September in Nuremberg and has came to its 17th edition, this year will focus on information and data processing for integrated applications, GIS and remote sensing technology based on complementary solutions. In 2010, 17,000 people have visited Intergeo, 25% of which came from abroad.


Intergeo changes its location every year. In 2010 it took place in Cologne, this year, from September 27 to 29, it will be in Nuremberg, at the Nürnberg Messe. In 2010, attendance had increased by 20% since 2009 and there have been more than 1,500 participants in the congresses and conferences. Intergeo is in fact one of the most important technical and commercial appointments in the field of geo-information, with shares of 90% with regards to the achievement of objectives by the 500 exhibitors from 32 countries.

The scientific nature of the event is guaranteed by the presence of the leading European research institutions among the exhibitors as well as during the conferences: economic growth in this sector is likely to increase, so companies take the opportunity to contact centers and young researchers.

Nuremberg’s edition will continue the path started in Cologne, with initiatives such as the so-called Daily Keynote Speeches (held by authoritative figures. In 2009, these were the judge of the Constitutional Court Ugo Di Fabio, the President of ESRI Jack Dangermond, the President of Fig Stig Enemark) and Intergeo Academy – which will take place during the three days of the event.

With regards to the after-show, before enjoying one of the hotels in Nuremberg, you can visit the old town and dine at one of the high quality restaurants of the city. Among these, to taste the classic, rustic Franconian cuisine, we suggest the Bratwurst Röslein, in the heart of Old Town since 1431, rather than Bratwursthäusle, near the church of Sebaldus (which holds a butcher’s to guarantee the quality of the meat,) since 1313. Both are in the Rathausplatz area. A unique restaurant is Zum Spiessgesellen – housed in the cellars of the Town Hall, with typical regional cuisine, while the restaurant Essigbrätle in Weinmarkt, is mentioned in the Michelin Guide with a star and is considered one of the top 30 restaurants in the country.
