APUC Set for January 2015 in Hong Kong

Esri GIS users from across the Asia-Pacific region will converge on the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for the 10th Esri Asia Pacific User Conference (APUC) January 27–28, 2015.

The hundreds of attendees expected for the conference will learn how the latest developments in GIS technology are being applied in their region and learn new techniques and best practices. Hosted by Esri China (Hong Kong) Limited, Esri’s official distributor in Hong Kong, the Esri APUC will bring the best of the Esri User Conference in San Diego to the Asia-Pacific region. Attendees can learn about Esri’s vision for the future at the Plenary Session and explore state-of-the-art technology at the GIS Solutions EXPO.

For two days, GIS users of all experience levels and interests can participate in workshops and seminars and listen to presentations by Esri staff and GIS professionals. Key industry tracks include utilities, AEC, and urban design; transportation; public security and safety; defense and intelligence; maritime and port security; mapping and charting; and emergency response.

Attendees can discover how to best leverage current GIS investments and resources, showcase their work in user presentations, network with peers, and stay current on crucial industry issues. Preconference workshops and a senior executive track, showcasing some of the regional lighthouse projects and best practices, will also be offered.

“Hong Kong is a very special place—an international business, trade and financial hub,” said Zoe Zhang, business development manager for the Greater China Region at Esri. “Hong Kong is the gateway to China, the world’s second largest economy. Surrounded by GIS-advanced countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and Singapore, Hong Kong is the perfect location to get firsthand GIS knowledge with an Asian twist.”
