We are continuing to plan the organisation of INTERGEO 2020 in Berlin for you.
The German federal states have agreed on 17th June 2020 that mass events generally will stay prohibited until 31st October 2020. This concerns for example folk- and street-festivals and other public events of such kind. This directive does not apply to trade fairs as like INTERGEO. This was determined by the agreement of the federal states 6th May 2020. Additionally this agreement specified that with immediate effect the states may decide on their own authority about the permission of trade fairs, and about regulations concerning distancing and hygiene. This has already happened to INTERGEO. On 17 June 2020, the Federal Government decided that major events such as public festivals or events are prohibited until 31 October 2020.
With a comprehensive safety and hygiene concept, which was drawn up together with Messe Berlin and now only requires approval from the Local Authority, we are creating the conditions on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds to ensure that you can visit INTERGEO corona-safe. This means that INTERGEO will take place in a slightly different setting, but at last personal talks and discussions will once again be possible. Your contributions are important for the appropriate further development of our specialist area.
In addition to the live event, INTERGEO will also provide a virtual twin in real-time transmission for the first time this year. As well as live on site, you will be able to reach every exhibitor of the EXPO, the speakers and the CONFERENCE, in case you might not be able to travel to Berlin personally. As usual, the geospatial community will meet in October at INTERGEO 2020 to exchange ideas. We are pleased that, thanks to the simultaneous live imaging in the digital world, everyone can join the event in October and be part of it. You decide whether you participate virtually or live. You can therefore already secure your ticket and confirm your participation.

Berlin / Karlsruhe, Germany, 3 June 2020. The INTERGEO Round Table is the annual mid-year event for experts to discuss the latest industry trends. The participants of this get-together, which was hosted virtually for the first time, are convinced that our world needs intensified digitalisation and networking to enable us to better overcome challenges. But things don’t end with the Round Table. “We want to showcase our topics live, too, and highlight their critical importance – at INTERGEO 2020 in Berlin!”
In the interview: Dr. Markus Ziegeler on sustainable forestry and the use of the bark beetle app. He describes the climatic changes and the resulting increased spread of the bark beetle in native forests. The detection and monitoring of infested trees and the resulting follow-up work is mapped by means of a continuous digital workflow.
