Halls of the Esri UC
Where there’s always a map for that: the halls were decorated with inspirational GIS phrases.
Wall decorations told the stories of the many industries that utilize geography.
Sun and maps inspired conference attendees.
The Geolounge (not to be confused with Geo Lounge) provided attendees with a location to relax, socialize and charge electronics.

The Map Gallery features maps by users around the world. Esri showcased a large printout of a Dymaxion map projection hanging in the Sails pavillion this year.
