Novara GeoSolutions 2017 User Conference

June 6-8th, 2017


Shaping Informed Decisions

Join us in San Antonio, TX on June 6-8th as we present case studies, peer to peer sessions and product visions on how your Novara technology helps you shape informed decisions.

Whether in the boardroom or in the field you need reliable, accessible information about your assets to effectively operate your company. The content you create, the data you maintain, and how accessible it is determines how you make decisions. This year Novara's User Conference theme focuses on how our everyday work shapes how decisions are made across the organization. Everyone plays a significant role in making sure content exists, if it is current and if it's in the right place at the right time.

Date: June 6-8th, 2017

Location: Hyatt Regency Hill Country, 9800 Hyatt Resort Drive, San Antonio, Texas 78251
