NENA and URISA are pleased to announce the newly re-engineered Locating the Future Conference (formerly known as the URISA/NENA Addressing Conference). The conference will take place at the historic Union Station in St. Louis, Missouri from November 3-6, 2013.

With the new theme, comes an invigorated slate of topics relating to location, addressing, public safety, emergency management and 911. The world is changing at a rapid pace and technologies related to location are more and more common. How do location and addressing adapt?
