We encourage you to stay in these “Official GEOINT Hotels.” By reserving these rooms you are immersing yourself right in the center of the GEOINT activities and attendees, but you are also enabling USGIF to negotiate better rates for the future and pass along future savings to exhibitors and attendees.

Attendees may make changes to their room reservations however may not cancel their room completely without forfeiting their deposit.
