John W. Hickenlooper will speak on the role of information technology.

John W. Hickenlooper, mayor of the city and county of Denver, Colorado, will present a keynote address at the 17th Annual GIS in the Rockies Conference. Mayor Hickenlooper will present his vision of the role of information technology in providing services to the citizens of Denver.

The luncheon address is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday October 6th at the Plaza at the Mart.

Before being elected as Denver's 43rd mayor on June 3, 2003, John W. Hickenlooper was a successful entrepreneur who helped revitalize Lower Downtown (LoDo), and also served as a leader on the boards of dozens of local organizations, nonprofit and civic.

Mayor Hickenlooper's passion for Denver began in 1981 when his career as an exploration geologist brought him to Buckhorn Petroleum, where he worked for five years. After a regional collapse of the oil business in the mid-80s, he spent two years developing the Wynkoop Brewing Company, the first brewpub in the state of Colorado.

The conference will be October 6-8, 2004 at the Plaza at the Mart, a facility at the Denver Merchandise Mart. Wednesday and Thursday will include technical sessions, the exhibition, and shorter workshops. Full-day and two-day workshops will be Monday and Tuesday. Friday's program includes technical tours and a golf outing.

The sponsoring societies are the Colorado Section of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), the Rocky Mountain Region of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Geospatial Information Technology Association (GITA), the Professional Land Surveyors of Colorado (PLSC), the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) and GIS Colorado.
