What is Planet Explore?

It's okay if you've never heard of it - Explore is Planet's first-ever conference, with the goal of bringing together industry thought leaders, customers, partners, end users and developers for two days of learning and conversation. From thought-provoking keynotes and cutting-edge customer use cases, to market trends and our vision for the future, we're excited to host this dynamic, global community.  


Why would I attend?  

The goal of the conference is for attendees to discover something new - new ways to leverage imagery to solve real challenges, new use cases to bring back to your organization, get familiar with new products and features. 


We’ve designed the two days to have something for everyone. Day 1 is intended for both non-technical and technical audiences. The day kicks off with a keynote guest speaker you won’t want to miss, followed by customer-led breakout sessions, and closes out with an evening of networking. Day 2 will be divided into two tracks - one that focuses on more technical attendees who are looking to get hands on with the Planet platform, as well as a Global Partner Summit. Learn more about the agenda.
