What is the GEOINT Symposium

USGIF’s GEOINT Symposium is the preeminent event of the year for the defense, intelligence and homeland security communities.

Each year since 2004, GEOINT Symposia have brought together an exciting agenda of keynote speakers, panel discussions, breakout sessions and provided attendees a unique opportunity to learn from leading experts, share best practices, and uncover the latest developments from government, military and private-sector leaders.

This mix of community leaders with a ever-growing exhibit hall featuring the industry’s top solutions and capabilities brings attendees and exhibitors back year after year.

Of course, the GEOINT Symposium wouldn’t be the GEOINT Symposium without the rich networking opportunities. An opening welcome reception, charity golf tournament, exhibit hall receptions, and a closing celebration—as well as some impromptu events—provide tremendous networking opportunities with immeasurable returns on investment.
