USA – The ESRI electric and gas community will come together to discuss the industry’s hottest topics and latest technology at the ESRI Electric and Gas User Group (EGUG) Conference October 19–23, 2008, in Indian Wells, California. This year’s theme, Riding the Winds of Change, embraces the industry’s most current developments and proven best practices in managing assets and data. Attendees will explore how geographic information system (GIS) technology benefits utilities in crucial areas such as spatial data management, server-based GIS, and mobile solutions.
This year’s conference will convene at the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort in Indian Wells, near Palm Springs. GIS users from around the world will gather to share experiences and discuss how they use geographic knowledge to enhance utility operations. Presentations will address the latest technological innovations, mobile solutions, integrated approaches to enterprise asset management, and other electric and gas operations.
“The EGUG conference is an ideal setting for utilities to network to get a feeling of how others are addressing industry-specific issues,” EGUG president Ted Kircher said. “As with most ESRI events, there are many opportunities to network and discuss specific concerns with others including ESRI experts. Attendees have the opportunity to see what is new and improved in the electric and gas industry in a small meeting setting.”
