The Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) celebrate the achievements of top spatial information enterprises and individuals, and showcase the finest projects and most significant performance of professionals that the surveying and spatial industry has to offer. Projects and individuals attaining recognition at this premier series of events are deemed to be truly outstanding achievers in their field.
The regional APSEAs provide a stepping stone for organisations and individuals to be nominated in the Oceanic Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards – the only awards for the Asia Pacific region that recognise the excellent achievements of both individuals and organisations engaged in the surveying and spatial information industry in this region at a single event.
The awards are a long-standing premier event in our calendar and previous years have seen an excellent standard of competition, with a diverse range of individuals and small, medium and large private, public and academic sector organisations vying for these prestigious awards. Supported by the four pillars of our industry – academia, government, research, and the private sector, our awards are an opportunity to celebrate our rising stars.
