Esri is preparing for our annual Esri Partner Conference (EPC) and Developer Summit (DevSummit) in Palm Springs, California. These are two events held at the same location, March 2-4 and 5-8, 2019.

The Esri Partner Conference is an exclusive yearly meeting of Esri's global partners and distributors who are reshaping the world through the application of geospatial technology. EPC provides the environment to develop the strategies and skills to extend the value of your business, expand the power of geographic information, and deliver success.

Esri Developer Summit is available for anyone to attend and is designed to show you how to build cutting-edge apps using advanced mapping technology from Esri. At DevSummit you will be able to test-drive no tech, gain training and learn, attend hundreds of user presentations and technical sessions sharing best practices, as well as take advantage of opportunities to get our technical questions answered by Esri staff.

Both event's agendas are full of opportunities to network, collaborate, and get inspired.

If you’re attending EPC, don’t miss the GIS Solutions Expo and Social, 2-7pm, on Monday, March 4, featuring Esri’s global partners who are solving some of the world's toughest geospatial problems by developing high-caliber solutions, services, content and hardware with the ArcGIS platform.

Within the expo is the Emerging Business Zone hosted by the Esri Startup Program. This area features 6 emerging businesses who will be showcasing their innovative technology solutions across an array of industries from public safety, commercial, government, transportation, and more.
