All registered GEOINT Symposium attendees are welcome!

Immediately following the events of the Symposium on Thursday, registered attendees are invited to walk next door to T-REX at 911 Washington Ave where you will begin your trek. You will get the opportunity to tour our historic building, including the nation’s first Geospatial Innovation Center, and see the exciting geospatial spaces, tools, and toys we offer our partners and entrepreneurs. NGA will also be hosting tours of its new Moonshot Labs Innovation facility in T-REX. T-REX is also where your augmented reality (AR) experience will begin.

After your T-REX tours, grab a drink or snack at our tent in Trailhead tent in the T-REX parking lot and set off on a journey of (geo) discovery. Your path will include entertaining AR features and experiences and fascinating information about the history of St. Louis and the Downtown North district. Historically, this area was once the site of cutting edge geospatial efforts that shaped the allied strategy in WWII and now has become a gateway to geospatial advancement. Your trek will take you to the historic Globe building where the experience will continue with food, drinks, networking, and a fascinating display of our technological history and future made possible by our signature sponsors, AWS and Esri.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about this region’s past and see where we are headed. Let us give you a glimpse of the future of geospatial—a future that starts in the Downtown North Insight district in the heart of Downtown St. Louis. Learn more.
