“Celebrating 20 Spatial Years”

Denver, Colorado – June 4, 2007 – The program committee for the 2007 GIS in the Rockies Conference announces that ESRI will serve as the platinum sponsor of the 2007 conference.

“The GIS in the Rockies conference board is very pleased to have the continuing financial and technological support of ESRI,” said Deborah Wilson, member of the GIS in the Rockies Board of Directors. “Since this is our 20th anniversary year, we believe it is especially fitting to have ESRI as the event’s platinum sponsor. As a major player in the industry for the last 20 years, ESRI will provide a unique perspective on the history of GIS and surveying, while also looking to the future of the industry in and around the Rocky Mountain region.” 

The GIS in the Rockies planning committee has recently posted exhibit and sponsorship information on the event website. Interested companies and educational institutions may register for booth space and sponsorships on the event website at

Companies who register for booth space before June 15, 2007 will receive the early registration price of $875 for 8′ x 10′ space, table, electricity, WiFi connection, and two staff badges. The cost after the June 15 deadline is $975. Educational institutions may register for booth space at a cost of $250. Booth space and sponsorship opportunities are limited and will be assigned upon the order that payment is received, so interested companies are urged to return contracts as soon as possible.

The six sponsoring societies have developed a series of program tracks with the theme “Celebrating 20 Spatial Years”. Presentations and workshops are designed to appeal to a broad community of GIS users, surveyors, and other interested technology professionals. The professional societies and organizations share a dedication to promote professional development, education and general community outreach while helping people understand the uses and benefits of the technology.
