Speakers from Mapbox, Garmin, and SAM Inc. to provide keynotes at the annual NORTH51 Conference
CALGARY, AB (January 10, 2019) – Over 75 of the most innovative minds in the geospatial industry will convene at the Banff Centre in the heart of the Rock Mountains on February 6-8, 2019.

NORTH51 will feature speakers from global tech heavy hitters such as Mapbox, Garmin Canada, and SAM Inc., to provide insights into how the evolution of location-based technologies has disrupted consumer behaviors. “Mapping used to be something we did on our laptop, now it’s something we do on our phone”, said Marc Prioleau, VP of Business and Corporate development for Mapbox, in a pre-event podcast.
“I think that's really what's driven technology forward, is that push to mobility”, Prioleau explains. New applications of location information is transforming industries, and not just those related to the geomatics sector.
