The 2018 International Geographical Union (IGU) Regional Conference - Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) Annual Meeting - National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) Annual Conference* was an opportunity for all participants to appreciate the difference of various exhibitors, speakers, activities, etc. K2 Geospatial took part in this exciting event as a BRONZE partner. It is through 5 days that the K2 Geospatial team was able to meet dynamic participants, discover inspiring innovations and projects, as well as discuss with real geography enthusiasts.
* The International Geographical Union (IGU) held its regional conference in Quebec City from August 6th to 10th 2018. The selection of Quebec City was made last August 17th in Krakow, Poland, during a recent reunion of the executive committee of the IGU, an organisation that dates back to 1871. The IGUs forty different commissions united around the theme of “Accounting for Difference”. Joining the meeting was the Canadian Association of Geographers and the newly created Regroupement des géographes du Québec, who played host to the event. The local organising committee, based in the Department of Geography at the Université Laval, was chaired by Dr. Matthew Hatvany and assisted by Dr. Laurent Bourdeau who together piloted the bid leading to the IGU announcement to geographers worldwide to meet in Quebec City in four years. The goal was, firstly, to offer the international community of geographers the best possible conditions to share and disseminate their knowledge and, secondly, to stimulate, while at the same time making the geography of Quebec and Canada better known.
