Space + spatial time to have your say
You are invited to a SIBA|GITA online event at 4pm on 28 July to hear more about the SPACE+SPATIAL Industry Growth Roadmap 2030. We will be looking at a discussion paper designed to stimulate the conversation with people across our professions to better understand future plans and opportunities. The purpose of consultation is to specifically seek the advice of key stakeholders in the space and spatial ecosystems on actions that can be taken over the coming decade to accelerate the growth of the space and spatial industries working together. This input will then be used to develop the 2030 Space and Spatial Industries Growth RoadMap which will be completed later in 2021.
We look forward to seeing you there!
