I'll be at Esri's IMGIS conference which runs from October 31st (Happy Halloween!) through November 2nd. The IM in the name stands for infrastructure management. This includes a number of industries, but a very high percentage of attendees come from utilities especially electric, water and gas.
If you're planning to attend, please let me know, and let's connect during the conference or after hours. If you haven't been to this conference, please consider it in the future. There are a number of great breakout sessions focused on how Esri technologies can add more value to your system maps. It's also a great place to connect with other similar utilities and learn more about how they are taking advantage of GIS technologies.
My next Esri conference will be the Esri Partner conference in early March followed by the Esri Developer Summit. Both are in Palm Springs, CA and run back to back. The developer summit is a great way to get more in-depth knowledge of Esri technologies and get a sneak peak at what's coming in the near and long-term future. Let me know if you plan to attend!
