2016 was the first year Merkator exhibited on the renewed “Trefdag Informatie Vlaanderen” in Ghent, Belgium. This event, attended by almost 2000 people, focuses on all digital workflows within the Flemish Government and has it roots within the different Geo processes & workflows of the Government (prior AGIV). Being a young Geo-ICT Company, and thus relatively new to the local GIS market, we didn’t want to be there with a typical booth, in contrary. Merkator converted a Californian surf shop into a warm place where people have fun, realize great things, listen to the visitors, exchange ideas with customers, share experiences, were introduced to many potential customers and talked to many students looking for their first challenging job. Surfing the Merkator wave, fresh and with an open mind !
See you next year for another exciting and inspiring theme !
