 "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. 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.
