The Geospatial Information and Technology Association of Australia and New Zealand (GITA) has endorsed Utility magazine as an official media partner of the association.
Published by Monkey Media, Utility is both a print and online magazine and web portal covering the water, sewer, gas, electricity and telecommunications industries.
Geographical Information Systems are playing an increasing role in utility asset management and is a technology that has received regular coverage in the magazine. GITA recognised the role that Utility has played in communicating with and engaging the decision-makers and leaders in the utility industry and see the partnership as an opportunity to create better communication between GITA members and the end-users in utilities.
Utility has already been endorsed as the official media partner of the Water Industry Operators Association (WIOA) for both 2015 and 2016, and has a close working relationship with many other key industry bodies.
Commenting on the new partnership, Utility publisher Chris Bland said, “Since its launch, Utility has grown quickly while many other magazines are in decline. This new partnership is further vindication of our strategy of focussing on quality content and reaching the right people. There are some exciting things happening in the GIS space and we look forward to working with GITA to ensure these reach a wider audience.”
GITA’s President, Wanda Skerrett added, “We are very pleased to have formally engaged with Utility and are confident that the close alignment of our respective focus in the “utility sector” will be invaluable to ensuring GITA delivers targeted information in accordance with its aims. Considering the substance of, and growth in, Utility, our decision to Partner was an easy one.”
