Countdown until GeoIgnite 2020: Canada's National Geospatial Event

GeoIgnite 2020 COVID-19 Update

The disruption presented by the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in our lifetimes. GeoIgnite will not take place in June of this year but be postponed.

With news of the pandemic evolving daily, GoGeomatics Canada has made the decision to wait prior to deciding between the following two options.

Option 1: To delay the event to the fall of 2020.

Option 2: Postpone until 2021.

GeoIgnite is an annual event in Ottawa. So we will continue in the future as an important part of the Canadian geospatial ecosystem. On behalf of the GeoIgnite committee, we look forward to moving ahead at a future date. 

We thank our sponsors, attendees, partners, and friends for their understanding and patience during these difficult times.

Stay safe and healthy!


Following the success of our inaugural event, Canada’s National Geospatial conference is back for 2020.  Situated in Ottawa, our nation's capital, the Canadian geomatics sector will gather from Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th June for three days of knowledge, collaboration and sharing.

We hope that you will join us in 2020 as we have expanded every aspect of the conference. This means more opportunities for speakers, workshops, as we have doubled the size and scope of our trade show and exhibition.  We expect to attract 300-400 participants and 35-50 trade show exhibitors for our second year.

Canada’s most exciting location technology event is raising the bar by adding these new features for 2020:

  • GoGeomatics "Networking Social" boat tour on Ottawa River
  • GeoIgnite YouTube Channel for our talks
  • An expanded workshop program 
  • Doubling of the exhibition and trade show 
  • A series of unique summits and forums in addition to our core content
  • An executive dinner
  • Business start-up program and lounge area 
  • Media Wall with prime messaging from our speakers, partners, sponsors and exhibitors



The 2020 conference is in Ottawa and offers opportunities to explore and share topics in the geospatial and location technology across multiple sectors here in Canada and globally. 

The conference is organized by GoGeomatics Canada and an advisory committee made up of key public and private sector organizations. GeoIgnite promises to bring the current digital transformation taking place globally to the community here in Canada. 

For 2020 we are building upon the energy and enthusiasm of the geomatics community by increasing both the scope and scale of the GeoIgnite conference. Our committee’s 5-year goal of the conference is to grow to over 1,000 delegates and 100 exhibitors. We are a vendor neutral event.  

We will be discussing innovative offerings and ideas that may shape the future of Canada, Canadians and impact organizations abroad.
