This fall, the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) conference 
will be presented by OSGeo in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, from 
September 24th to 27th, at the Victoria Conference Centre.


FOSS4G gathers developers and users of open source geo-spatial software from 
around the world to discuss new directions, exciting implementations, and 
growing business opportunities in the field of open source geo-spatial 
software. Focused on the practical "make it work, get it done" world of open 
source application development, this annual conference boasts a very high 
concentration of geo-spatial technical opinion leaders.

Attendance at this event has grown at over 50% a year since its inception in 
2003, paralleling the rapid growth and adoption curve of open source 
geo-spatial tools in the marketplace, and over 500 attendees are expected in 
2007. Sponsorship opportunities at FOSS4G are available, please see the 
prospectus at http://www.foss4g2007.org/sponsorship_exhibition.html
