With Ozri 2013 fast approaching we are all geared up and ready for what is going to be a supercharged GIS event.
We have extended the Early Bird Special, so if you haven’t yet snapped up a ticket you have until the end of this week (Friday 12 July) to take advantage of this offer.
Last year’s Ozri event included everything from international Esri specialists and crowd favourites like Mike King to some of Australia’s most progressive geo-enabled organisations, our own local home grown GIS superstars, and even amazing laser shows and aerial performers.
Here are some highlights from Ozri 2012:

Well it’s December again – and what a busy year it’s been in Training at Esri Australia! There’s been a change at the helm, with Laura Berman moving to the role of Partner Manager, and my transition from Senior Trainer to Training Manager. Millie Chen - our Training Coordinator - has returned from maternity leave, and we have a number of new trainers who’ve started this year. Exciting times!
One of our major achievements this year has been the certification of our trainers. We now have 26 trainers certified in Esri software (Desktop, Developer, Database and Server) and CompTIA accredited (CTT+ – Computer based education certification). We also have two accredited Telvent trainers who can teach ArcFM courses. The level of experience required to gain this accreditation is critical for delivering the highest quality GIS training for you, our clients.
Well this round of Tech Directions has been and gone.
3 weeks, 8 cities and over 1,100 attendees turned out to see what is happening in our industry, the latest trends which are influencing how we as a GIS community work and what our clients and consumers expect… and to see ArcGIS 10 in action.
So after speaking with our presenters, looking at ALL the evaluation forms (a big thank you, we have made some changes already based on your suggestions; i.e. an agenda handout will be provided at the start of the event as well as on the blog) and attending an event myself, here are the top 5 take aways from Tech Directions.
