Join USGIF in Hall C this evening to celebrate the Symposium with a GEOINT 2015 Welcome Celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. Although the Welcome Celebration was originally scheduled to take place at Carnegie Library, it was moved indoors due to safety concerns over extreme heat indexes and severe weather. Regardless of venue, the Welcome Celebration is always a great setting to network with colleagues old and new and celebrate the GEOINT Community. Attendees will enjoy great food and beverages as well as entertainment by Gonzo’s Nose, a local D.C. band covering hits from the ’80s and ’90s.
