The IMIA Adelaide Meetup was held on the 6th July, 2016 at the Department of Environment, Water & Natural Resources offices in Waymouth Street, Adelaide. The Meetup was attended by approximately 15 people from government and private industry and provided a good opportunity for local networking in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The lightening talk format kept people engaged throughout five interesting and informative presentations with all presenters being asked many questions. The Adelaide Meetup was sponsored by Hema Maps along with the Department of Environment, Water & Natural Resources who provided the venue.
