PCC Conference and Plenary Meeting 2017

PCC Conference and Plenary Meeting
13 - 15 November 2017
Nordic Hotel Forum, Tallinn

This year's conference and plenary meeting of the Permanent Committee on Cadastre in the European Union (PCC) "Towards Digital Europe and Spatially Enabled Societies" took place in Tallinn from the 13th to 15th November 2017. It was the first time for the Land Board to host a PCC meeting in Estonia, and it was a great pleasure to share our experience in eGovernment, to introduce our land administration systems and create a platform for discussing the latest knowledge, newest trends and innovation in cadastre. We hope that we could provide also excellent opportunities for networking and everyone enjoyed their stay in Tallinn, which is one of the most enchanting cities in Europe.

The next PCC meeting will take place in March 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria.


The venue of the conference and plenary meeting was Nordic Hotel Forum ( Viru väljak 3), in the Sirius Hall. It is a modern superior four-star business and conference hotel in the city centre, just a couple of hundred meters from the picturesque Old Town. By car, Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport is just 10 minutes away, while the port is only 5 minutes away.
