The Geodesign Summit is an annual gathering of professionals interested in using geospatial technologies to arrive at the best and most sustainable design solutions. The two-day summit focuses on Geodesign frameworks and concepts, geospatial technologies that support Geodesign, and sharing real-world examples of Geodesign in practice. The overall goal of the Geodesign Summit is to help people find innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges by fusing design processes with geospatial technologies. It is becoming increasingly clear that the world is changing faster than our institutions are able to respond. More broadly, this implies that planning practices rooted in the twentieth century may no longer be adequate to address twenty-first-century problems. If we are to build smart, livable, and resilient communities, we need to reexamine our assumptions and reboot our thinking about what it means to plan for a rapidly evolving world.

Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
