USGIF Hosts a Successful GEOINT 2018

Bringing together 4,199 attendees and 251 exhibiting organizations, USGIF’s GEOINT 2018 Symposium gathered the global GEOINT Community to discuss opportunities and solve challenges.

GEOINT 2018, held April 22-25 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla., was the 14th annual Symposium and this year’s theme was “Driving Data to Decisions and Action.” With exponentially increasing data being collected and stored, and subsequent intelligence to be gained, it is imperative to use the information effectively and efficiently to a purposeful end. GEOINT 2018 explored the major drivers, themes, and innovations helping decision-makers and warfighters at the tip of the spear gain actionable intelligence from disparate data.

Among the attendees were 847 government and military personnel, including 264 employees of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), 58 representatives from U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and 53 members of the U.S. Air Force. There were 314 international attendees representing 36 countries. Among this year’s attendees were 206 young professionals and 113 participants from academia.
