 "Attending the URISA Caribbean GIS conference always proves to be a exhilarating, learning experience, well worth the time with great networking opportunities available. I think this geospatial event is a great use of money by any GIS professional seeking to perfect their craft in the Caribbean. This is my fourth conference and it keeps getting better and better every year. There's always a wide spectrum of attendees, presenters, keynote speakers, etc. to interact with, who represent a wide cross-section of public and private industries, agencies and academic institutions not only from the the Caribbean region but as far as North America and Europe. I am always excited about walking away with ideas, insights and information on how to implement world-class GIS business models for my organization better and more efficiently each and every time. DON'T MISS THE CARIBBEAN'S PREMIER GIS CONFERENCE!" - Fidel  Omar-Ali, Telecommunications Services of Trinidad & Tobago Limited (TSTT)
