Why Attend?

The GEOINT Symposium is an invaluable event for anyone who relies on the “where” when it comes to national security – industry, government, homeland security, academia, and non-governmental organizations.

The educational content, access to speakers, technology displays, and visibility and networking across the Intelligence Community is unparalleled.

You could attend four different industry events throughout the year, or come to the GEOINT Symposium, where everyone gathers to share ideas and better the greater Community.

Some of the attendees of past GEOINT Symposia include:


As 4,000 professionals congregate, we embrace a deeper sense of community and perish the walls construed from biased, conventional perspectives in the world of government, politics, academia and beyond. The GEOINT Symposium has forever changed my perspective on the industry. It is an invaluable experience every leader should experience."
- Kolemann Lutz, Founder and CEO, Frontier Space

The symposium played a crucial role in setting up the pathway for the GEOINT discipline, and thus GEOINT education. It was also an event leveraging friendly and productive GEOINT discussions among professionals, researchers, professors, and students. It was truly an opportunity to establish and strengthen friendships that will lead to valuable collaborations."
- Trung Tran, Assistant Professor, Fayetteville State University

Most comprehensive event to hear about enterprise strategy from IC leaders, see the latest in geospatial and analytic technologies, and network with key government decision makers and partners in the business arena."
