Conference: MidAmerica GIS Symposium (MAGIC) 2016 Symposium

The 2016 Symposium will be held at the Overland Park, KS Convention Center April 24 - April 28, 2016 in Overland Park, Kansas. The conference hotel, the Overland Park Sheraton is adjacent to the Convention Center.
Why did we chose Overland Park? Overland Park is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. The OP Convention Center is very spacious - offering our Planning Committees ample opportunity to bring you new learning experiences! Additionally, we've listened to your concerns with previous location logistics:
  • Parking: It's free and there is plenty of it!
  • Internet: It's also free EVERYWHERE including the guest rooms, meeting rooms, and Exhibit Hall!
  • The Gym: It's free too!
  • Location: Downtown Kansas City can be intimidating. The Overland Park Convention Center is extremely easy to get to, and is right off a major highway. Additionally, the area is hopping with new entertainment and shopping districts, restaurants and museums!
GIS covers such a broad range of subjects, applications and types of people that use it, that developing a conference program that meets everyone's needs is a challenging task. Even more challenging is an attendee trying to figure out exactly which sessions or topics will be most interesting and helpful. MAGIC 2016 is intended to focus the content of the presentation options into a program specifically geared to each attendee's needs.
Your 2016 Planning Committee is working very hard to bring you the best Symposium yet. If you have ideas or comments, please send them to theSymposium Chair.
