We would like to thank all the exhibitors and delegates for making the LMF’s first Mapping Showcase event such a great success. See some of the photos taken throughout the day.
We had some fantastic feedback including “Many thanks to all who helped make this invaluable event happen – I found it a very insightful overview”, “Had an amazing time” and “Very good information on mapping with new technologies”.
Missed out this time? We’re looking to make the event even bigger and better next year. We’ll keep you posted with our plans nearer the time.
In the meantime, the LMF team would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Mappy New Year!
