Sydney, Australia. 28 January 2009.

Sponsorship and Exhibition packages are now available to be purchased for the international FOSS4G conference, to be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from 20-23 October 2009.

FOSS4G is the international "gathering of tribes" for open source geospatial communities, where developers and users show off their latest software and projects. The theme for 2009 is "User Driven", highlighting the power of Open Source to integrate with existing systems. The OGC's Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP) to be launched will demonstrate standards based interoperability between Open Source and Proprietary geospatial applications. The CCIP will be a major draw-card for Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) sponsors looking for standards based spatial solutions.

BOOK NOW to take advantage of extensive direct marketing campaigns that will extend your exposure well before and beyond the Conference itself. For further details, contact Kirsty O’Brien, Sponsorship and Exhibition Executive, or Tel: +61 2 9265 0776
