Dear Friend and Colleague,

After 2 years of not being able to meet in person, this will now hopefully finally change. We have come to terms with our new reality, but our desire to connect face-to-face has never been stronger. The Congress gives passionate professionals the opportunity to learn globally, learn across silos, from other countries, industries and professional roles – with sessions and representation from the broad rage of surveyors and geospatial experts. Meeting in person makes a difference, and has impact on careers, organizations and communities. It is also a unique way to experience Poland and its culture.

The overall theme of the congress is Volunteering for the future – Geospatial excellence for a better living. The congress will be packed with a technical programme, exhibition, pre-seminars, meetings and the FIG General Assembly. Apart from this, the congress also offers a variety of social events, technical tours and social tours.

We cannot wait to meet again in person. Although we have learned that online meetings work well, the face-to-face presence brings an extra layer to a conference experience. Previous surveys have shown that benefits are:

which you will bring home with you in your back-pack of special experiences and adventures mixed with new knowledge, ideas and food-for-thought from the technical programme.

Social events

Included in your registration fee is the welcome reception and cultural evening. Here you get the opportunity to talk to other congress participants who have not met directly for a long time. This will also give a unique insight into Polish culture in company with The Song and Dance Ensemble of Warsaw University of Technology.

The FIG Congress Dinner will take place on Tuesday 13 September. This special event and exclusive dinner of the Congress will take place in a unique place, the main hall of the Warsaw University of Technology, representing the cradle of Polish Surveying. During the FIG Congress dinner, guests will have another opportunity to meet The Song and Dance Ensemble of Warsaw University of Technology and try their own talent in folk dancing. The best entertainment will be guaranteed by the Engineers Band.
