GeoBuzz 2021

 GeoBuzz 2021

GeoBuzz is where geospecialists, users and management/administration meet for a two-day inspiring event. Exhibitors will showcase their products, innovations and services, while an inspiring conference program will introduce you to new topics and invite you to participate in the discussion. It is an all-encompassing event about the use of location data in climate adaptation, mobility, the design of the living environment and the energy transition.

Join these great networking days in Den Bosch, Netherlands. Entrance is free. Mark your calendar for 22 and 23 November 2021!


After being cancelled in 2020, GeoBuzz is back with an even better programme in 2021. There will be less static plenary presentations, with the event now distributed over four themes and more parallel talks and networking opportunities, spread over two days.

Four themes

Each conference day will cover two key themes:

Climate adaptation and energy transition (22 November)

In the year of the new IPCC report, climate adaptation and energy transition are THE themes of 2021, especially since the COP26 summit will provide a lot of new inputs. Of course the geo-information plays a critical role in this. One of the biggest challenges is the transition to make the Netherlands, and the world, climate neutral. Within the Netherlands 30 regional energy strategies are in the making, together representing a national ambition.

Smart Mobility (22 November)

Smart mobility is an important element of the energy transition, with lots of (space) technologies driving new innovation in all aspects of transport. GeoBuzz aims to be a showcase of this new innovation.

Environment and Planning Act (23 November)

Through the Environment and Planning Act (Omgevingswet) the Dutch government wants to combine and simplify the regulations for spatial projects. The aim is to make it easier to start up projects. For example, the construction of housing on former business parks, or the building of wind farms. Geo-information plays a critical role in the implementation of this new act.

Digital Twins (23 November)

Another topic that was barely mentioned at GeoBuzz 2019 is the digital twin. Driven by EU projects this has now become one of the leading topics in geo-information. The event will look at how digital twins are being defined and what the added value is for societal projects.


The GeoBuzz Exhibition is a central place for networking between commercial, governmental institutions and education to meet and share ideas. With a mix of large companies, SMEs and startups the GeoBuzz Exhibition will be a prime showcase for the Dutch (and EU) geo-information sector!


This event will be an in-person event at the 1931 Conference Centre at the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch, Netherlands.
