GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference

Annual Conference for Professionals in Property Assessment, Tax Administration, Mapping and Information Technology

Next Stop: Louisville - March 23-26, 2020

24th Annual GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference

Formerly known as the GIS/CAMA Conference, we've re-branded to take into account the abundance of technologies that, when integrated with GIS, make valuation and assessment more accurate, efficient and applicable for jurisdictions of all sizes. The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) and the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) partner each year to discuss the importance of data and the analysis of location information for better decision-making within a jurisdiction.

Venue: Omni Louisville

Events will take place at the Omni Louisville (400 S 2nd St, Louisville, KY 40202 USA).

Reflecting the past, present and future of this vibrant Kentucky town, Omni Louisville Hotel is the new cornerstone of downtown. From the moment you arrive, you will truly feel like a part of the community as our Falls City Market invites in the neighborhood with aromas of freshly brewed Heine Bros. coffee, baking bread and fragrant fresh flowers. Our location allows you to easily make your way to Main Street and indulge in Louisville's bourbon culture at many popular distilleries. The Omni is also near the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and Churchill Downs horse racing track. The Louisville International Airport is about 7 miles away.

Whether a sports fan, history buff or shopaholic, there are plenty of things to see and do throughout town.

The conference negotiated an amazingly affordable $199 single/double hotel room rate at the Omni including wifi access. The group rate will be available until February 28, 2020 or until the room block is depleted.
