Looking for something to do during lunch?

Why not join us for a lunchtime Black@EsriUC meetup at the Esri User Conference? You can chat with fellow GIS professionals, geek out over some of the latest announcements from the plenary, or take a break from work and focus on fun and food.

There is a great lineup of restaurants in the Gaslamp Quarter, so you can choose whatever cuisine you’re in the mood for. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to connect with peers and colleagues from across the globe.

RSVP on Facebook, and we’ll see you soon!
