Washington, D.C. - As the domestic economy continues to struggle, firms continue to look for new opportunities to expand. That is why MAPPS announced it will host the "Geospatial & Engineering International Conference - Entering and Expanding Global Business Opportunities," Nov. 13-14 at the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Va.

The conference will provide information and practical knowledge to enable firms to export their services, data and products to overseas clients. It will feature agencies and organizations that finance, procure, coordinate and manage geospatial and engineering projects outside the United States with presentations on their programs, budgets, requirements and procurement procedures. Agencies that assist U.S. companies with exporting will inform firms of services available to assist with expansion into the global market.

Private sector professionals experienced in international business will share best practices and lessons learned. The conference will also include unique teaming, partnering and networking opportunities. Session topics will be geared toward firms that are new to exporting and those who seek to expand their international portfolio.

Supporting organizations include the Association of American Geographers (AAG), American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), Construction Industry Round Table (CIRT), and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA).

Details about the conference are available on the conference website, www.geointernational.org. Participating agencies, speakers and sponsors will be announced at a later date and time. Interested professionals can sign up for email information on the conference on the website.
