Brisbane to Host Global Surveying Conference

7th October 2021

The International Federation of Surveyors’ (FIG) prestigious Working Week, to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in 2025, is expected to attract 1,700 of the world’s leading surveyors and spatial experts.

Paul Digney, President of Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), the conference host association, led the successful bid with the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre team, supported by industry partners, Tourism & Events Queensland, Tourism Australia and Brisbane Economic Development Agency.

Digney said Brisbane was viewed very positively by the FIG selection committee and that as the future Olympic 2032 city, there was an opportunity to raise the bar even higher for the major event of the world’s surveying industry.

One of the key goals of the conference, he said, was enhancing the capacity of the profession to develop the knowledge and innovative thinking to help deliver more sustainable and resilient communities, aligning with the theme of the conference, ‘Surveying and geospatial: Creating resilient solutions for sustainable communities.’
