The 2018 UC is just around the corner and we are excited to welcome many active members of the Esri Mining GIS community. Throughout the UC week, users from different disciplines and all over the world, will come together to discuss What’s Next in GIS, the theme of the conference.

To kick things off, Esri President and Founder, Jack Dangermond, brings inspiration to the stage and takes the audience on a journey through GIS capability and applicability - through demonstrations by Esri staff and featured guest presenters; such as J.D. Irving’s integrated forestry supply chain, the City of Boston’s urban planning, and James & Deborah Fallows 100,000-mile journey into the heart of America. In the afternoon we are honored to host Juan Enriquez, recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on the economic and political impacts of life sciences, as he explores of the intersection of how we design our places and ourselves.

Then, throughout the week, attendees can choose from over 1,000 technical and user presentations, learn and expand their knowledge of ArcGIS capabilities with more than 450 hours of offered training, interact with over 300 exhibitors, and network and share ideas within an integrated GIS community that spans the globe. Whether you are attending this year’s conference for the first time or the 20th, you can find a wealth of knowledge to some on the most challenging GIS questions, direct from Jack and senior Esri leadership, on the User Conference Q&A web page. 

As a member of the Mining GIS Community, we have sessions customized around workflows important to you, a special interest group meeting for you to collaborate with your peers, maps designed to share stories, and an evening social for you to network with your peers.

We look forward to seeing everyone next week.

Safe travels,

Geoff Wade
