"App Garden" for NYS GIS Conference Sponsors & Exhibitors

As the geospatial industry continues to evolve with location-enabled and place-based information streams, the NYS GIS Conference advisory council is providing sponsors and exhibitors with more opportunities to highlight their geospatial products and services. New for this year are the "App Garden," a designated space on the exhibitor floor to showcase mobile, web-based, and/or desktop applications; the "Technology Petting Zoo," a place where attendees can spend quality time with the latest and greatest hardware, gadgets, and technology; and a "Demo Theater," a time where platinum, gold, and silver sponsors can engage attendees by introducing their products and services to participants. The NYS GIS is May 15-16, 2012 at the Oncenter Complex in Syracuse, NY. DETAILS
