Christchurch Talk Geospatial Event

A mixing of like minds in a different way at the Christchurch Talk Geospatial Event.


SIBA and NZIS recently held a speed networking event in Christchurch. The event brought people from the surveying and spatial industries together in a way they may not have experience before.

The evening started with a presentation by Matti Seikkula, CIO from e-spatial. It was well received and was described by one attendee as "an Interesting forward thinking presentation”. A word from Peter Hicks (SIBA) was followed by a panel discussion with Dr Kat Salm and NZIS CEO Hadyn Smith about the merit of joining the NZIS spatial stream lead by Shane Dixon, NZIS Canterbury branch rep.

Following this, organisers Shelley Sutcliffe (SIBA) and Sharleen Cole-Swami (NZIS) set the speed networking going and watched a fast-paced transfer of ideas, evident by the volume of engaged chatter. Participants reported the time seeming shorter between each switch, though it was always 5 minutes between each seat change.

Plenty of people to the opportunity to continue the networking with more food and drinks and the night was rated a success by those that attended.
