2014 PACKAGES


Why travel to ach individual state when you can meet with the key state decision-makers at the Annual and Midyear Conferences? State members know their government organizations and are also networked with the geospatial community in their states. They can point you to the right contacts for your business and help explain state procurement procedures. We even commit a portion of all Sponsorship funds to support travel for member states that could otherwise not attend NSGIC conferences. Thanks to our Sponsors, representatives from at least 75% of the States/Territories regularly attend each NSGIC conference.

NEW THIS YEAR! Purchase a sponsor package after March 2014 and receive benefit through the 2015 Midyear Conference! Contact NSGIC Headquarters for details!
