Anniversary 100 years IGS

Save the date! 19th -22th April 2017

The Swiss Surveyors Association (IGS) was founded 99 years ago. Together with you, we would like to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of IGS from 19 to 22 April 2017, at the Swiss Tech Convention Center in Lausanne – with a short look back to the past and a courageous and an innovative view into the near future.

Save the date! From the 19th to 22th of April 2017

The conference held on 20th September 2017 will be at the heart of the upcoming IGS jubilee. Under the motto “We shape the living space – break the barriers”, we will face up to the challenges of the future Switzerland, with an estimated population of 10 million people.  At the same time, we will demonstrate how the contribution of the engineering surveyors will help to meet those challenges. The conference will be tackling „hot“ topics, such as digitalization, mobility, land management and formation at the lectures (morning) and workshops (afternoon).  

The IGS celebrations with the members will take place on April 19, 2017, with the General assembly and an IGS banquet.

Numerous associations and partners surrounding IGS support the conference held on April 20, 2017.  Some of them will seize the occasion to hold their General Assembly within the anniversary activities on April 21, 2017.
The Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE) will organize its General Assembly on April 21st and 22nd, 2017 in Lausanne. CLGE will nominate Guillaume-Henri Dufour as „European Surveyor of the year 2017“. Additional information will follow.

With the anniversary activities, IGS intends to target its members, as well as young and adult specialists linked to land management and show how the diverse challenges of the future can be tackled and resolved. The Swiss Tech Convention Center in Lausanne has been chosen as conference site because its spectacular shape symbolizes the “path to the future”.

Save the date from 19 to 22 April 2017 right now.  

See you soon in Lausanne! We look forward to meeting you!
