Why Come to the Summit?

The Summit is a unique opportunity to learn about the direction that the geospatial industry is going as well as how it is helping to shape the world.

This event provides attendees with a unique forum intended to bring together the best in the geospatial industry, to discuss the latest events shaping the industry and engage geospatial professionals in New York in frank and open dialogs on a wide range of topics.

Select individuals from around the country are invited to speak in the morning and afternoon on cutting edge topics.  At the end of each ½ day session a panel discussion allows attendees to engage each of the speakers to answer questions they may have or open discussions on new areas of interest.

The discussion is, indeed, stimulating and attendees always leave the Summit rich in the knowledge they have gained as well as the thoughts that have been provoked!

This year's Summit is in a spectacular setting on the shores of Otsego Lake and a short drive from Albany.
