The largest annual geospatial conference each year is the Esri User Conference. Held each year in San Diego during the summer, this annual gathering is host to about 18,000 attendees. The big kickoff to the conference each year is the plenary session with presentations by Jack Dangermond, president of Esri, as well as staff demonstrations and keynote speakers. You can see the complete lineup of speakers by visiting the Plenary agenda page for the 2018 UC.
This year, Esri plans to stream the plenary session live via its Facebook page. The plenary will take place on Monday, July 9th from 8:30am to 3:30pm PDT. So if you can’t make the conference in person down in San Diego but still want to catch the plenary session, this is your opportunity.
