GEOINT 2019 Symposium Golden Ticket

Each year, USGIF’s YPG Golden Ticket Program offers young professionals the chance to win an exclusive opportunity to the GEOINT Symposium to meet and hear from seniors and innovators in the GEOINT world in a personal setting.

This year USGIF is selecting 30 young professionals for the YPG Golden Ticket Program to attend the GEOINT 2019 Symposium, June 2-5, in San Antonio, Texas. The program includes private networking events, luncheons with government and industry seniors, and admission to the chairman’s reception among other opportunities.

Winning the Golden Ticket includes complimentary registration to GEOINT 2019, however, winners are responsible for their own housing and travel. If selected, winners agree to attend the full Symposium and all activities and discussions that accompany the Golden Ticket agenda.

The Golden Ticket Program is now closed. Winners will be announced in April.

Who is the YPG?

Developed in 2009 by young professionals, the USGIF Young Professionals Group (YPG) serves to unite junior GEOINT professionals within the Defense, Intelligence, and Homeland Security Communities or those with less than five years experience within the community. This group offers events and programs that parallel the Foundation’s mission of advancing the geospatial intelligence tradecraft by utilizing the unique dynamics of our young professional membership and their needs.
