Esri User Conference

June 27 – July 1, 2016 | San Diego Convention Center

User Software Applications Fair

If you've developed an application using Esri technology, or customized an Esri software product to meet specific business requirements, you can share your work at the User Software Applications Fair. Integration with non-GIS applications is encouraged.

Space is limited and entries are considered on a first come, first served basis. Participants are encouraged to spend time at the fair to speak with their peers about their entry.

Please keep in mind, the deadline to submit is Wednesday, July 15, 2015.

Submit Your App


The types of applications that are encouraged are focused on the scope, creativity, effectiveness, and delivery of an application to meet the stated requirements, independent of the software used to create it. The winning applications will make the best use of Esri software (alone or in combination).

Examples of application types:

  • Web-Based Applications—GIS applications delivered via web browser
  • Mobile GIS Applications—GIS applications developed for mobile platforms such as Windows Phone, Android, iOS (iPad or iPhone), ArcGIS Mobile or ArcPad
  • Desktop GIS Applications—ArcGIS Desktop or ArcEngine applications, including entries that are developed using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), ArcObjects SDK (Java, C++, .NET), or Python
  • Multimedia Maps (Former Virtual Map Gallery)—Animations, CD/DVD ROM, or other multimedia presentations displaying the results of GIS analysis

Note: Commercially available (third-party) GIS applications are not permitted. If you have an application that is marketed as a commercial product, you are invited to participate in the GIS Solutions EXPO.

For more detailed information, please review the Welcome Letter and Guidelines.
