NYGeoCon 2017: Oct 17-19, Lake Placid, NY

Welcome to the NYS GIS Association’s NYGeoCon!

For over 30 years Geospatial Professionals from throughout New York State and surrounding regions have been gathering to network, share and discover the latest in GIS and related technology. NYGeoCon is the premier NYS GIS conference. It occurs only once every two years and provides an opportunity for you to obtain training, see timely presentations, attend workshops and find out what your peers are doing. The last NYGeoCon held in 2015 was a huge success, providing attendees with a new awareness of the latest in GIS. Please join us as we continue our success at NYGeoCon 2017 at the Lake Placid Convention Center October 17-19!

A fabulous setting: Lake Placid Conference Center. An amazing line up of speakers. And most importantly: you.
