The goal of the summit is to expand and foster the use of business-focused geographic information system (GIS) solutions to help businesses be more competitive, drive business innovation, and increase their return on investment.

"Geography should be at the heart of any business, no matter the size," says Simon Thompson, commercial business industry solutions manager, ESRI. "Location plays a vital role when analyzing customers, market potential, competition, risk, and other areas that are key to the success of any organization. The needs of the industry are constantly evolving, and ESRI is dedicated to developing business-focused GIS solutions that not only meet these needs but also bring innovation and efficiency to the way businesses operate today and in the future."

From customer analytics and site selection to logistics and business continuity planning, attendees will discover how GIS offers enhanced understanding of the marketplace; collaboration throughout the organization; improved workflows; and new ways to visualize, analyze, and incorporate vital information into decision-making processes.
