PocketGPSWorld.com Announces its 7th FREE GPS Enthusiast and Industry Event in Edinburgh

Following the huge success of our last event, PocketGPSWorld.com announces our first 'GLOBAL' exhibition. Yes, we know that we have already attracted substantial amounts of overseas visitors to our past events, but this time we plan on spreading the word even further and targeting thousands of GPS/mapping enthusiasts and the industry at large from every corner of the globe... and, thanks to the sponsors that collectively make up the cream of our industry, IT'S FREE!

This will be the biggest ever dedicated GPS event in the World - we are hoping to attract well over 2000 visitors.

We have had many exhibitor confirmations already including TomTom, Garmin, Route 66, CoPilot, TeleAtlas, Memory-Map, Globalsat, Destinator, Navman and Nemesis. Two leading Taiwanese companies are confirmed to fly in so far, plus one more waiting in the wings. It looks as if many other countries will be represented including Finland, Germany, France and Holland and we are awaiting confirmation from two North American companies. Retailers easydevices.co.uk, and widget.co.uk have also confirmed.

The PocketGPSWorld.com Event is a “Face-to-Face” forum allowing you to touch and feel the equipment as well as chatting to industry specialists. People from all the over World will be in attendance so we expect to see ALL you Brits on the day - it's a fantastic excuse for a spring weekend in Scotland! For our last event in there were dozens of you who stayed overnight or for the weekend. This time we are expecting 100s. Should be quite a party in the bar at the hotel afterwards.

We expect to have a large number of national and international manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers exhibiting and, yes, you will be able to buy stuff on the day - often discounted. If you would like to find out how to exhibit, please email [email protected]

Centre stage will be the PocketGPSWorld.com car, and a bike forming our exhibit. This will show how GPS equipment is used in our own vehicles and the lengths we go to in bringing these reviews to our users. We will also be having a workshop area where you can bring your own equipment and we will upload points of interest (POIs) or help with configuration issues. We anticipate having a complete range of knowledge levels from absolute beginners to advanced GPS users.

We received some fantastic feedback from our last event from both our visitors and the GPS companies (ALL of the companies said they would like to sponsor another one). In fact we were victims of our own popularity; the only gripe we heard on the day was that we needed more space. We couldn't agree more! That's why our venue choice is the largest in Edinburgh and can hold up to 3,000 people.
