GeoAmericas 2020 was due to welcome visitors to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in April but health and safety concerns over the global Covid-19 pandemic prompted organizers to move the entire event online. This virtual conference promises to be a unique and rewarding event easily accessible for all, wherever delegates work or live.
