Thank You for a Successful GEOINT 2017

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. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, was the 13th annual Symposium and this year’s theme was “Advancing Capabilities to Meet Emerging Threats.” The Symposium focused on how next generation capabilities and processes such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, cloud computing, agile and enterprise acquisition efforts, object-based production, and change detection—to name a few—are shaping the face of intelligence analysis.

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.
