2021 Esri Infrastructure Management & GIS Conference

Palm Springs, CA | Oct 25, 2021 — Oct 28, 2021

We’re so excited to be attending Esri’s 2021 IMGIS Conference in person this year! Especially excited as this is the first conference we will attend jointly with 3-GIS.

For the uninitiated, Esri IMGIS is a crossover event that provides learning opportunities to users from infrastructure sectors, creating a richer, more valuable experience for organizations to move their location intelligence and GIS forward. Join professionals specializing in the management of infrastructure from several interconnected industries—water; electric and gas; district heating and cooling; pipeline; telecom; transportation; and architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC).

So please join us and 3-GIS at the Palm Springs Convention Center as we bring a team of experts that you can engage with at our booth and our many presentations. Please reach out to Jessica Hartbauer and schedule a meeting to connect with us. It’s been a while, we’re looking forward to it!

Here’s what we’re working on for the conference. We encourage you to bookmark and check back often for updates!


Visit us in booth #205 for a demonstration, ask questions, or meet with our team. We’re easy to find in the center of the Expo hall next to Esri’s booth. See exhibitor map HERE.

If you would like to set up a one-on-one meeting with one of our representatives, please email Jessica Hartbauer to reserve your spot today.

Applying OCM to Increase Project Success at AES Corporation

Wednesday 10/26 @ 4:00pm – 4:30pm

Organizational Change Management (OCM), when integrated in Graphic Work Design and Utility Network, can significantly improve project acceptance and success. This approach requires rigorous sponsor engagement, active stakeholder expectation management, and provides feedback from stakeholders in addressing the consequences of change inherent with new technology and process adoption. The authors use Prosci’s ADKAR model to illustrate how the integration of OCM is improving results at AES.

Leveraging GIS to Propel Growth in Telecommunications

Thursday 10/28 @ 9:00am – 9:30am

From copper to fiber, the progression of telecommunications technology over the last several decades has boosted bandwidth to fuel our increasingly connected lifestyles. In turn, these networks have become more and more complex to manage. With significant investments being made to deploy fiber faster, geospatial awareness has become vital in ensuring companies are maximizing the utilization of their networks. In this session, learn how GIS is key to propelling network growth.
