REDLANDS, California — April 10th, 2019 — Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the conclusion of its participation in the Future Cities Show (FCS) 2019, held in Dubai’s World Trade Center between the 8th and the 10th of April.

With the theme of “Propelling Globalization through Digital Transformation, FCS supports the growth of smart city solutions such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, smart mobility, smart infrastructure, and sustainability as catalysts in achieving a healthy global digital economy. FCS provides the platform for carefully selected homegrown and international technological innovation under one roof, to attract scalable investments.

As the Geopsatial partner of FCS, Esri demonstrated GIS Applications for Safe Cities, Smart Cities, Land Administration, and Government Solutions among others.

In FCS 2019, we highlighted our success story with the government of Abu-Dhabi, where 27 government entities and companies adopted Esri technology, managed by the Abu Dhabi Smart Systems and Services Authority (ADSSSA). The later allowed these entities to use GIS to develop businesses, services and the decision-making process in various sectors, which helped in offering services and projects with high standards of quality and accuracy of geospatial data. The end result is integrated and comprehensive services, as well as enhanced business environment and increased customer satisfaction and happiness” declared Dr. Nadine Sherif – Esri’s Regional Marketing Manager for MEA - in media interviews with ITP Media Group and Dubai TV Channel.
