2019 Users' Conference

Early-Bird Registration Ends August 9th!

This year’s Users Conference will be held at the beautiful Andaz Hotel which in the historic City Market area, a few blocks from the River Street in Savannah. This location has given us the opportunity to explore more of Savannah and to share some hidden gems with you. Everyone knows one of the best parts of a conference is the ability to interact with other organizations that share the same experiences and needs. To help facilitate interaction we have several fun breaks and social events prepared using the beautiful City of Savanah, Georgia as our guide. These events are designed with the diversity of our users in mind and to give Schneider Geospatial and our Business Partners an opportunity to host some exciting interaction social events to fit many different styles.  

This event attracts many GIS and local government professionals from multiple states. Attendees continually come to this conference to learn about new methods and technologies they can apply within their organization. Our Users' Conference also serves as a great environment to network with professionals in similar roles.

Are you interested in attending the Users' Conference, but need a little help communicating the value of your attendance to your organization? We can help, just personalize this justification letter for your manager to understand the return they will see on this important investment.
