    The Midwest UC is the FIRST Esri Regional Conference to be scheduled in the Midwest. It has been a long time since the broader midwestern Esri user community met at the last Midwest ArcInfo User Group and we’ve been talking for years about bringing something similar back, and that time is here. For two full days this conference will provide a unique opportunity to network with about 300 attendees from across industries who are using GIS technology to create location strategies in their organizations.

    Visit https://www.esri.com/en-us/about/events/esri-midwest-uc for details and registration info.
