Asia Pacific User Conference 2012

Every year in November members of Esri's user community in New Zealand gather at New Zealand Esri User Conference. This year is different. This time it is not just a New Zealand conference but the conference for Asia Pacific region. For this conference we are expecting about 500 visitors from whole region and that gives us new networking opportunities. 

The Conference will be held from 5-7 November in Auckland at the Sky City Convention Centre.
Esri's founder Jack Dangermond will be here as well as other speakers from esri.

With increased number of participants there is an increase in the number of paper submissions. There is just under a 100 papers submitted and review and selection process is now under way.

With increased coverage area there are more vendors showcasing their products and solutions. The list includes IBM, Telvent, Schneider Electric, TomTom, Terralink, GBS and others.

Before the Conference there will be a number of workshops (half day and full day) covering topics from LiDAR and 3D to GeoDesign and Project Management.

To find out more about the Conference check the Esri Asia Pacific User Conference page.

NZ User Conference is know for a good atmosphere and most of the conference dinners had a theme. The theme for this conference is "A day at the races" since it will be in the time of Melbourne Cup. Feel free to take your own spin on the subject and get that fancy outfit.

Take a look at some photos from past conference dinners and see you there!
