Hi Carrin,


Daina is now in charge of marketing - if people can help her I am sure it
will be appreciated.

Thanks Inge, not a problem.

Gavin, can we pull in other people to assist with marketing?  At least
drawing up some material or providing us with places to advertise.  I'm
concerned that we are not getting out there enough and need to make an
effort to contact all relevant options.

Hi Carrin,


You need to be a bit more specific as to what you want sent to various


For example are they going to give us advertising space (eg A6 picture
space)  or are they going to run a short story on the conference, date time
location topic (300 words) or are they wanting a full description with
opportunities, sponsor exhibition, authors etc.


Please note that I can not run with the marketing and the technical program
for this conference - I am struggling as it is to get the technical program
stuff out - Unfortunately I am under a lot of pressure at work (I know we
all are), I don't have the luxury of using work time (like I could for some
of AfricaGIS) and currently work time is almost all the time (including
evenings and some weekends).

Hi Inge


Please can you prepare some short marketing notices about the conference to
distribute to EIS Africa and other online distribution lists.  I'm sure that
Sives will give us good coverage and I'll see if we can get a front page
slot from him.  For those of you not familiar with EIS Africa see


The African Geo-Information have also said that the will market the
conference and we need to provide them with material


Also have a look at Geology of North Africa and Arabia Information, Exchange
and Research http://www.northafrica.de/gis.htm 




http://www.gisdevelopment.net/news/viewn.asp?id=GIS:N_ncwmpjaltd may be a
bit optimistic with Map Africa, given that they are holding their annual,
non GISSA supported November conference now in August! 


Please would you also contact Antony and see if there are any other
international forums that he sits on that we could use to market the


I suggest that Inge keeps track of where we advertise, so if you do send out
a notice, please let her know.  Could be a useful resource to pass on to the
next organising committee instead of reinventing the wheel.
