Business Partnership

National Connections in One Location

The NSGIC Annual Conferences and Midyear Meetings draw key decision-makers from US states and territories, eliminating the need for cross-country travel to educate customers and prospects about your offerings. Having access to many state members in one location is not only efficient; it enables business partners to gain critical insight into multiple government organizations, including how to navigate through state-specific procurement procedures. Networking with executives in the national geospatial community can translate into making the best connections to impact government policies, build partnerships and expand your business.
