At 440,000 total square feet, the GIS Solutions EXPO is truly a sight to behold. Almost all of us can vividly recall our first encounter with the sprawling showcase that features more than 300 geospatial exhibitors interspersed with technical islands and demo theaters staffed by Esri’s experts.
As impressive as it is visually, our attendees also consistently rate the EXPO as one of the most useful components of the conference. It’s one of the reasons we created the EXPO Only registration. It’s that popular.
But enough from us. Here’s a sample of your comments about the GIS Solutions EXPO.
“In the Exhibit Hall, I was able to sit down with an Esri ArcGIS Online expert and with my Esri account representative for two hours to go over all the features of ArcGIS Online and have my detailed questions answered. It was such valuable information to bring back to my manager and the director of the Information Services Department.”
– Colleen Swain, Information Services Supervisor at Easy Bay Municipal District
“This conference provides a wealth of information that helps significantly when it comes to leveraging our geospatial investments by allowing me to meet directly with the product managers to discuss the roadmap ahead or address issues we may be experiencing with a particular product. The technical knowledge islands in the exhibit area are very insightful.”
– Scott Burton, GIS Manager at the Broward Sheriff’s Office
“The vendor EXPO and industry solution islands were awesome. They were helpful for newcomers and those looking for solutions for their agency.”
– Denise Jens, IT Analyst for the City of Santa Clarita
“As a first-time attendee (I was an EXPO Only attendee and I did not attend any of the sessions), I was impressed with the overall organization of the EXPO room, the quality of the displays, and the demo theaters. I was able to learn quite a bit from the speakers at the demo theaters, and the range of topics should have given most attendees something they would have found of value in watching or listening to. I really enjoyed the opportunity to network with the vendors and Esri partners and I’m already looking forward to next year’s conference.”
