Columbia, MD – July 16, 2015: Route optimization experts from RouteSmart Technologies will be presenting advanced new route optimization tools, engaging with attendees, sharing best practices, and educating users about requirements for route optimization on the Esri platform at the 2015 Esri User Conference (UC) in San Diego, CA from July 20-24th. This is the 15th year that RouteSmart will be exhibiting at the annual conference, which will be housed at the convention center. With an expected attendance of over 15,000, this conference is the world’s largest GIS event. This year, the UC will feature keynote speaker Martin O’Malley, Governor for the State of Maryland, in addition to other powerful GIS industry thought leaders.

“The annual Esri User Conference is a fantastic event for us each year,” states Chris Walz – Vice President of Sales & Marketing for RouteSmart Technologies. “We interact with hundreds of attendees – current clients as well as those looking for route optimization solutions that leverage the Esri platform. We’ll have our industry experts and our Vice President of R&D, Roy Dahl, at our booth (#1008). We are looking forward to the event because it is always a first-class venue – and organized to perfection for both attendees and business partners by Esri.”

The UC includes preconference seminars, technical workshops, paper sessions, demo theater presentations, a Map Gallery, and the chance to meet thousands of professionals working in GIS that are experiencing similar challenges and victories. “This is your front row seat to learn the next big thing in GIS,” the UC website says. Professionals representing nearly every commercial sector, government organization, and non-profit field will be in attendance. This sheer number of potential user-to-user interactions will help attendees learn from real-life GIS experiences, best practices, and tips. Users can bring their unique GIS challenge to the conference for real answers in real time. They can meet with Esri staff, software users, and partners.
