The Geospatial and Engineering International Conference will provide attendees a chance to network and learn more about expanding global business opportunities.

Terri Morrison, the author of “Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands: The Best Selling Guide to Doing Business in More Than Sixth Countries,” will provide luncheon keynote address at GEIC.

In addition, attendees will gain real-world knowledge, according to conference program chair Brian Raber.

“Another main feature will be they will gain access to firms to talk to them best practices and lessons learned because they’ve been there,” Raber said. “They are experienced firms and they know how to do work abroad. I think whether you’re a seasoned veteran at this or new to exporting, the conference really has a lot of opportunity.”

GEIC will take place Nov. 13-14 in Alexandria, Va.

Members of partner associations—MAPPS,  Association of American Geographers (AAG), American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), Construction Industry Round Table (CIRT), Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association (GSDI), National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS), and the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA)—can receive registration discounts to the GEIC.
