Intergeo 2024 Press Release

Meeting place for the global geospatial community – Stuttgart is being transformed into a stage for sustainable solutions and international cooperation

From 24 to 26 September 2024, Messe Stuttgart will be the beating heart of the geospatial community. INTERGEO, a world-leading event for geodesy, geo information and land management, gathers together experts and visionary minds from all over the world. With 600 international brands, industry leaders, associations and start- ups, INTERGEO is underlining its position as number one in the geospatial community. The event promotes dialogue between these key stakeholders, encouraging them to network, cooperate and work together to shape the future. As an international platform, INTERGEO offers a global perspective and facilitates cross-border collaboration, with a view to making full use of the potential offered by geo information technologies and coordinating a collective response to global challenges. 


Geo information is the invisible motor that drives today’s society and offers solutions to global challenges. The technologies and applications being showcased at INTERGEO 2024 are diverse. Ranging from the development of smart cities and sustainable agriculture to efficient environmental management, they clearly demonstrate that geo data and its associated applications and tools are of crucial importance – and not just in traditional areas such as navigation and mapping. They are also the key to innovative solutions for managing cross-sector challenges such as climate change, urban expansion and resource management. 

INTERGEO 2024 will showcase how geo information technologies are driving innovations in many different areas. Alongside core topics, the expo and conference will cover a wide range of subjects, including BIM, Earth observation, digital twins, maritime solutions and current developments on the drone market. 


The geospatial sector plays a key role for a whole host of industries – from urban planning and climate research to agriculture. INTERGEO 2024 provides a forum for dialogue and for showcasing innovations that form the basis for future-oriented solutions in public administration, business and science. 

Innovative technologies such as high-precision LiDAR systems for drones and multiband aerial camera systems with thermographic capabilities will push forward developments in the geo information sector. INTERGEO in Stuttgart will also highlight the synergy that exists between geo data and the digital construction industry, 

especially due to the integration of BIM processes. BIM Days Germany will therefore once again be taking place at INTERGEO as an integrated event. Both at the conference and on a dedicated BIM stage at the expo, there will be a key focus – throughout the three days of the event – on the growing synergy between geodesy and the digital building industry, including aspects such as integration in BIM processes and sustainable carbon-neutral construction, renovation and maintenance. 


One of the aims of INTERGEO 2024 is to establish itself as the leading international event relating to Earth observation. Earth observation is hugely important for a whole variety of applications, from climate research and urbanisation processes to agriculture. One key focus is the use of Earth observation data to support sustainable developments and deal with global challenges such as climate change. In view of extreme weather events, loss of biodiversity and pressure to urbanise, Earth observation data provides essential information for efficient adaptation and mitigation strategies. 

The innovative Earth observation technologies being showcased at INTERGEO 2024 are crucial for understanding and monitoring climate-related phenomena. High-resolution satellite images and advanced analytical methods make it possible to precisely document and analyse changes in ecosystems, sea levels and glacial melting. This information is vital for developing climate adaptation strategies and reducing CO2 emissions. The INTERGEO Conference will include sessions on topics such as “Earth Observation for Managing the Green Transition” and “From Climate Change to Climate Adaptation – Consequences and Measures” (“Von Klimawandel zu Klimaanpassung - Konsequenzen und Massnahmen”) that will highlight the essential role played by Earth observation in society today. A keynote speech entitled “Earth Observation for our World in Change” will address the current challenges and solutions in relation to Earth observation. 

As technologies become increasingly advanced and as more and more Earth observation data becomes available, these technologies and data will become even more relevant in the commercial landscape, opening up new business opportunities and helping to solve global challenges. According to recent data from market research company Euroconsult, for example, many new countries are joining the satellite manufacturing industry. Over the next decade, more than 3,500 EO satellites will be launched and close to 98 billion US dollars of revenues will be generated. This is almost triple the number of satellites launched between 2012 and 2021, and a 23 percent growth in market value. (Source: observation-data-and-services-to-reach-7-9-billion-by-2031/). 


In September 2024, the halls of Messe Stuttgart will turn into a living mosaic – the approximately 17,000 participants who are expected to attend the event from all over the world will transform INTERGEO into a global centre for geo innovation, where the international community of geospatial experts will gather together to shape the world of tomorrow. 

Besides bringing the international community together, however, INTERGEO 2024 will also demonstrate how global dialogue can lead to changes at local level. From urban planning that is inspired by international best practices to climate protection projects that are based on worldwide data – the event clearly demonstrates that the answers to local issues are often to be found in global dialogue. 

The event offers a unique opportunity to gain insights into the future of geo information and Earth observation and to set the right course for the years to come. It invites the global community to become part of a movement that is shaping a sustainable future through innovation, technology and the sharing of knowledge.
