The South Florida GIS Expo is an annual conference sponsored by the Palm Beach Countywide
GIS Forum. For 2019 our Co-Chairs are Josephine Rudd and Heather Kostura. The South Florida
GIS Expo provides a venue for collaboration, Geographic Information System coordination,
networking, education and training to the rapidly expanding professional GIS Community in the
South Florida Region. The Expo is run completely by volunteers, and proudly continues to be a
FREE event for attendees!
The 2019 Expo will be our 26th year of organizing and facilitating this regional GIS conference. For 2018 we had over six hundred registrations from the public sector, private companies, non-profit organizations and exhibitors. This event is such a success due to the efforts of our dedicated Expo Committee volunteers.
