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.
Susan, Dan, and Neal enjoyed great success in accomplishing their symposium goals of increasing their understanding of the role of data in driving the decisions and actions of our clients, while connecting with both current and future partners. They formed new relationships with several industry-leaders, and solidified existing partnerships. Reports from Tampa indicate that the weather was cooperative to get out and do some walking along the Riverwalk, and the food scene in Tampa has exploded allowing the team to find some great bites at the “Urban Chic” Ulele and the “Industrial” gastropub” Edison: Food + Drink Lab.
Congratulations Coach Barborek!
