Esri User Conference 2023: GIS—

Creating the World You Want to See


The Esri User Conference is the largest GIS conference in the world, bringing together GIS professionals from around the world to learn about the latest in ArcGIS technology. The five-day conference will kick off with a plenary session on Monday, July 10 at San Diego, USA, where the GIS community will experience inspirational stories from Esri founder and president Jack Dangermond, Esri staff, users, and special guest keynotes.

After two years of virtually attending the Esri UC in Hong Kong, our company will resume physical attendance at the Esri User Conference in San Diego. This is a great opportunity to share the latest developments in geospatial innovation and good stories about Hong Kong with our foreign friends.

The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn and collaborate with fellow GIS professionals. Registration for digital access to the conference is complimentary for users who are currently on maintenance plans or subscriptions—including ArcGIS for Personal Use subscriptions—as well as distributors and partners.

Jack Dangermond, founder and president of Esri said it is expected to have nearly twenty thousand people attending the User Conference this year.


This year's conference theme is "GIS – Creating the World You Want to See." It emphasizes using geography and maps as a powerful common language to safeguard nature and all living things, treating people and the planet as a deeply interconnected system. The vision is to create a sustainable, prosperous, and equitable world for ourselves, our children, and our planet.

After a pandemic-induced hiatus, the Esri UC returned as an in-person event last year, with nearly 15,000 attendees in San Diego, as well as approximately 16,600 virtual participants. It provides a unique opportunity to learn about the latest geospatial technology and share experiences with GIS professionals and users from around the world.
