Where 2.0 2008 Conference – Register Early for Discounts

Where 2.0 is a conference all about the geospatial web (or GeoWeb) and the technologies we all are becoming to know an love (like Google Maps and, of course, Google Earth). This year’s event will be on May 12-14, and will be held at the San Francisco Airport Marriott for the first time (it had been in San Jose in previous years). This is a great opportunity to meet important players in the development of Where 2.0 technologies. I’ve attended the previous two years (read some of my summaries here, here, and here) and was able to meet all kinds of interesting people both big industry players, and negeographers and technology innovators galore. I highly recommend this event if you are interested in geospatial technologies.
Check out all the details on the program and sessions at the Where 2.0 web site. And make sure you register before March 23, 2008. There is a substantial discount for registering early. Also, watch for discounts from sponsors.
This year I’m not only attending the event, but I’m also on the Program Committee. I’m looking forward to meeting many of you who read this blog. If you attend, make sure to look me up! Also, make sure you plan on spending a few extra days surrounding this event. Usually there are related events adjacent to Where 2.0. For example, on the weekend after Where 2.0 there is already a Where Camp being planned which will be hosted by Google.

  1. Hi Frank:
    I am an avid reader of your blog and I try out most of your techniques and suggesstions. They are a great help to me in trying to learn Google Earth. So BIG Thank You for that.
    The conference sounded great, so I went to the conference’s webpage and read more about it. Well, it sure does sound like a good deal to attend. But considering all the high profiler visiting the conference I was wondering about it’s usability to someone like me, who is an active GIS user for past five years. I am just begining to learn the Web GIS concept such as ArcIMS (implemented ArcIMS recently), ArcGIS Server and OpenLayers along with GE, VE and World Wind. How much useful this conference would be for such person as the registration cost is considerably high enough to think about it?
    Thank you very much.
