About the Expo

The South Florida GIS Expo is an annual conference sponsored by the Palm Beach Countywide GIS Forum. For 2018 our Co-Chairs are Josephine Rudd and Heather Kostura. The South Florida GIS Expo serves as a way to foster collaboration, Geographic Information System coordination, networking, education and training for the rapidly expanding professional GIS Community in the South Florida Region. The Expo is run completely by volunteers, and is proud to continue to be a FREE event for attendees!

The 2018 Expo will be our 25th year of organizing and facilitating this regional GIS conference. For 2017 we had over six hundred registrations from the public sector, private companies, non-profit organizations and exhibitors. This event is a such a success due to the efforts of our dedicated Expo Committee volunteers.
