Bringing together 3,883 attendees and 240 exhibiting organizations, USGIF’s GEOINT 2017 Symposium gathered the global GEOINT Community to discuss opportunities and solve challenges.
GEOINT 2017, held June 4-7 at the Henry B.

Among the attendees were 675 government and military personnel, including more than 200 representatives from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. There was also strong international participation from 34 countries. Among this year’s attendees were 211 young professionals and 104 participants from academia.
