There is no shame in acknowledging that some of the best ideas are “inspired” by what others have done.  That’s why we’ve been invited to peek backstage at the annual Esri Users Conference. Widely known and respected for innovative and high-impact events, Esri will give us behind the curtain access to how they approach some of the common challenges in organizing and putting on a large conference and highlight some of the unique and innovative aspects of their event.

What is Esri? Esri provides mapping and GIS software for…well just about everybody.  If you have used GPS on your phone or in your car or even searched for a map and directions on the Internet you have used technology powered by Esri. At this event Esri users from around the globe will come together to discuss best practices, view demos, get hands-on learning and more.

The program will include a “behind the scenes” tour of the ESRI tradeshow. Please note that the tour is limited to 25 participants and planner members will be given priority in filling these spots.
