UPDATE: GEOINT 2020 Symposium & COVID-19
March 10, 2020
The USGIF Board of Directors and Staff share your concerns about COVID-19, and recognize the health and safety of our community as our highest priority. We continue to monitor reports from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the federal government for recommendations and directives.
While a fluid situation, at this time, the GEOINT 2020 Symposium is moving forward as planned. USGIF has implemented all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by WHO, CDC, and state and local health authorities. We continue to work with the Tampa Convention Center, all show partners, and Tampa-area hotels to ensure the safety of all show participants. The Tampa Convention Center and the City of Tampa continue to maintain rigorous cleanliness and safety standards throughout public spaces, resorts, and meeting facilities.
Numbers/changes: To date, we have had two exhibitors cancel due to COVID-19 concerns. In addition, we have had four attendee cancelations to date. For exhibitors, we are delaying the freight acceptance date from March 31 to April 6, which will allow additional time for possible changes to GEOINT 2020.
We are committed to being a trusted resource and maintaining open channels of communication to support your planning for the GEOINT 2020 Symposium, April 26-29, in Tampa, Fla. Please continue to monitor this page and our social media channels for updates.
