The GIS Managers' Open Summit is a track designed for GIS managers, business and technology strategists, and other decision makers attending the Esri UC. The summit offers opportunities to engage in conversations with peers on topics that relate to business efficiencies, return on investment (ROI), managing data, and more.

The summit features some scheduled speakers focused on GIS management issues, followed by round table discussions on highlighted topics. The primary focus of the GIS Managers' Open Summit is on participation, networking, and attendee collaboration.

We encourage you to sign up for the summit in advance to inform others that you'll be there and suggest any topics you would like to discuss. We look forward to seeing you!
