The British Cartographic Society’s Annual Symposium, the UK's oldest and only event all about maps.

Make maps, use maps or just love maps?
Learn more in a friendly, sharing environment of like minded professionals and enthusiasts.
Pick up tips on design, technical advice about maps in GIS and on-line solutions, the latest research on the maps of tomorrow and their importance as historical records.
For the first time the BCS Symposium joins with The International Map Industry Association (IMIA), bringing together an even wider audience of producers and users from around the world.

Maps matter!
Learn how to make maps mean so much more, for you and your organisation.

Are maps part of your work?
Do you want to understand maps better?
Are you creating maps, no matter how simple?
Are you using maps in your projects or research?
Are you a map lover?

Then you should attend. The benefits for you and your organisation will be immediate and significant.
