We have established protocols that we ask all event attendees to follow.  Esri will continue to assess the evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and will adapt our protocols accordingly. Please check this page periodically for updates about health and safety requirements for attendees and exhibitors. 

 

We encourage every individual to make informed decisions about attending this event in the best interest of their own health as well as the health of others. If you cannot or choose not to comply with the 2021 Esri Imagery Summit (Imagery Summit) onsite health and safety requirements, or if you simply cannot attend the event for other reasons, much of the conference digital content will be available after the event.
