Indoor GIS at the 2024 Esri Partner Conference and Developer Summit

The Indoor GIS team is excited to see new and familiar faces at the 2024 Esri Partner Conference and Developer Summit in Palm Springs, California. Join us to learn about advancements in our core indoor GIS products, ArcGIS Indoors and ArcGIS IPS, that bring the power of GIS to indoor spaces, improving indoor asset and space management, safety and security as well as the occupant experience.

Our sessions offer insights into indoor GIS use cases, best practices, and hands-on demonstrations for building immersive indoor mapping and positioning apps.

In addition to the sessions, be sure to stop by the dedicated ArcGIS Indoors and ArcGIS IPS kiosks in the DevSummit showcase area for an opportunity to chat with the team and see live demos.

This year, both conferences will provide an indoor mapping experience powered by ArcGIS Indoors. All attendees can consult a web map or the Esri Events mobile app to immediately understand where everything is located inside the conference center.

You can use the map to locate and navigate to sessions saved to your schedule. Alternatively, you can also directly click on the map to select your routing destination and get turn-by-turn directions. In addition to the web and mobile mapping experience, there will also be interactive touchscreen kiosks on site to help you find your way.
