Countdown Begins for Esri Australia’s oZri 2013 Conference

Hosted by Esri Australia – the market leader in Australia’s spatial industry – Ozri 2013 is a chance for GIS professionals to gather, collaborate and share their knowledge of intelligent mapping and technological advancements.

The event is expected to attract GIS users from across the Asia Pacific – and features a range of presentations, training courses and workshops that will inspire and inform.

Ozri 2013 Manager Josie Sinni said this year’s conference would include more than 40 presentations from leading government agencies, councils and commercial organisations – focusing on the latest industry developments and some of the most compelling GIS case studies to date.

“This year’s Ozri theme ‘A Spatial Odyssey’, aims to reflect and celebrate the GIS industry’s constant growth – as a sector, it is now worth an estimated $2.1 billion,” Ms Sinni said.

“Yet again, Ozri 2013 will showcase the latest developments across the Esri software suite, highlighting that GIS is more accessible than ever and now applicable to almost all businesses and government agencies.”

A new fun element has also been added to this year’s conference with the introduction of Speed Geeking – a session giving delegates the chance to wow an audience on a range of spatial topics in less than five minutes.  

 “Our Speed Geeks will be asked to give a short, sharp and snappy presentation on anything spatial with the aim being able to beat the bell,” Ms Sinni said.

“It’s an opportunity for anyone – regardless of their presentation experience – to get up on stage and get involved.

“We wanted to bring a fresh element to the conference, and Speed Geeking will give delegates access to more GIS tips and tricks – but in bite size pieces.”

Other highlights of the conference include the GeoLounge hub and the Charge Bar, offering delegates the chance to meet, relax and reflect on new GIS learning.  

The Gala Dinner is another key feature of Ozri – one of the most popular social networking functions of the whole conference.

“Whether it’s at the Gala Dinner or between sessions, Ozri is a chance for companies to build relationships with their peers within the GIS community – sharing their knowledge and learning about new advancements,” Ms Sinni said.

“It’s an opportunity for us all to gather together to reflect on the growth of the industry and discuss how GIS technology will continue to evolve in the future.”
