Official GEOINT 2013* Hotels and Rates

The GEOINT Symposium room block is SOLD OUT.

J. Spargo & Associates, the official hotel and registration company of the GEOINT Symposium, is managing a wait list for rooms within the official hotel block. Please call 866-849-9827 or email to be added to the wait list.

If you have not yet made hotel arrangements, USGIF encourages you to use your preferred Internet or hotel search engine to secure a hotel room. There are currently at least five hotels with availability within 3 miles of the convention center.

Hotel Booking Process for GEOINT 2013*

Hotel reservations from the October dates were not transferred and will have to be rebooked.

Hotels for the GEOINT 2013* Symposium, which takes place 14-17 April 2014, are now taking reservations for those who held reservations within the official room block for October. Instructions were sent from J. Spargo & Associates on the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Those who held reservations for the October event will have an opportunity to rebook rooms before reservations are opened to the general public. This is a limited-time opportunity and is dependent on hotel inventory.

Due to the unforeseen and unavoidable postponement of the GEOINT Symposium and rescheduled dates, not all hotels will be able to accommodate the same number of guests. However, the ability for those who held October reservations to rebook first should help mitigate most issues.

On January 20, any remaining hotel rooms within the official symposium hotel block will be made available for new hotel guest reservations, should rooms still be available.

Please note, hotel reservations were not automatically carried over from October to the new April dates. Everyone who was in one of the official Symposium hotels will have to rebook their reservation.
