The GEOINT Symposium is the Preeminent Event of the Year

GEOINT 2016 takes place May 15-18 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Hosted and produced by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), a non-profit, non-lobbying educational organization, the annual GEOINT Symposium is the nation’s largest gathering of industry, academia, and government to include Defense, Intelligence and Homeland Security Communities as well as commercial, Fed/Civil, State and Local geospatial intelligence stakeholders.

The event annually attracts more than 4,000 attendees from all over the world, features more than 260 exhibiting organizations, and offers 60 hours of training sessions with accredited CEUs.

The theme for GEOINT 2016 is The GEOINT Revolution, and you can read all about this idea in USGIF’s magazine, trajectory

Who is USGIF?

The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is the only professional organization dedicated to promoting the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and building a stronger GEOINT Community across industry, academia, government, professional organizations and individual stakeholders.



With more than 250 Organizational Members and almost 1,000 Individual Members since the program’s launch in June 2015, USGIF continues to build the community, advance the tradecraft, and accelerate innovation for the global GEOINT Community – commercial and government alike.

As a not-for-profit educational foundation, USGIF takes a broad view of GEOINT and build programs, activities, training, education, and credentialing to be of value to anyone using remote sensing, geospatial information, and data information and intelligence.

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 the largest intelligence-focused 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.
