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


The AWS Public Sector team conducts two workshops on the second Wednesday of each month. The "Introductory Cloud Workshop" is a two hour course involving both one hour of presentations and one hour of demonstrations and tutorials using the AWS platform. The "Technical Cloud Workshop" takes a day and begins with in-depth briefings on AWS services, security in the cloud, migrating applications, and governance and oversight in the AWS environment. It then continues with a three hour hands-on tutorial in which participants use their own AWS accounts to design and deploy a highly-available web application. Both sessions end at the same time, and are followed by a joint reception where AWS Public Sector team members, customers, and partners can network and discuss ways to help each other benefit from the new opportunities created by cloud computing.
