2020 Users' Conference
This year’s Users' Conference and lodging will be held at the beautiful Andaz Hotel in the historic City Market area, a few blocks from River Street in Savannah. This location gives you the opportunity to explore more of Savannah and its hidden gems. 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 Savannah, 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 interactive 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.
