Marking the 25th Anniversary of our Company in Hong Kong, it is our great honor to have the esteemed presence of Dr. Jack Dangermond, the GIS pioneer and Founder of Esri, to join the Conference and deliver the keynote speech. During his visit to Hong Kong, he will receive the degree of Doctor of Science honoris causa from the University of Hong Kong on April 3rd, 2023 (Monday).  


The HKUC is the largest GIS conference in Hong Kong. It will bring together professional users from government and private sectors, such as town planning, environmental, and construction sectors, to provide informative and definitive presentations and technical demonstrations of how state-of-the-art GIS technology and Common Spatial Data Infrastructure are getting ready for the future by using geospatial information as their foundation. The conference will also have dedicated sessions on futuristic technology like GIS-BIM Integration, Artificial Intelligence (AI), reality capture and satellite imagery, which integrated with ArcGIS technology, the world’s leading professional GIS platform, can bring wide-ranging benefits to end users.


The Esri China (Hong Kong) User Conference (UC) will be held on April 4, 2023. 


The booth exhibition provides a great platform for business networking with our partners. An immersive cave powered by the ArcGIS Game Engine API, is one of the booths to be shown at the Conference. By interconnecting with Digital Twin and the Game Engine, the cave gives the users access to real-world maps and 3D content in an interactive way. 


Esri China (Hong Kong) has long been nurturing the young generation with geospatial thinking. To continue to step up our efforts, Dr. Winnie Tang, founder and chairman of Esri China (Hong Kong) will hold an inaugural ceremony to launch the charity organization “GIS Academy” at the User Conference. Please read the headline “GIS Academy to Be Officially Launched at the HKUC” for more details. More than this, our Company would like to extend our gratitude to honor the youth for their achievement in geospatial science and STEAM education. We are going to present awards to the winners of the two competitions - the Esri China (HK) 25th Anniversary STEAM Cup – Multi-Subjects ArcGIS StoryMaps Application Competition and the Esri Young Scholars Award.  


Stay tuned to our academic-fusion-technical User Conference. It will be a meaningful event to drive a comprehensive conversation on geospatial technology and the nurture of  I&T talent.
