The panel also will include representatives from the U.S. Commerce Department, U.S. Trade and Development Agency, Export Import Bank of the United States (EX-IM Bank), and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). 

Attendees of the GEIC will learn about U.S. government agencies that have business assistance programs and services directly related to the exporting of professional engineering and geospatial services, products, technology, and data. The session will also provide firms a road map to expanding into the international marketplace and the officials in U.S. agencies providing support for private sector businesses.

In addition to federal agency assistance organizations, attendees will hear from companies that support exporting through ITAR and exporting control, legal, tax, human resources and accounting topics. 

"We've assembled a program of speakers and presentations that has never before been organized in one place at one time in the geospatial and engineering market," said John Palatiello, MAPPS Executive Director.  "This is a very cost-effective and efficient way for members of our community to learn about exporting geospatial services, data, products and technology. The conference is focused on where the work is, how to compete for it, what's available to help U.S. firms, and what is needed to go or grow globally". 

The hotel reservation deadline has been extended to Oct. 29. Early registration for the conference is available.
