USGIF CEO Keith J. Masback’s Oct. 8 letter stated, “Given the absence of government speakers from our program and the absence of government customers from our exhibit hall, we have no choice but to postpone the 10th Annual GEOINT Symposium to spring 2014.”

Ongoing dysfunction among political leaders in Washington forced the postponement of this year’s GEOINT event.

In an Oct. 8, 2013, letter to GEOINT 2013 Symposium registrants, exhibitors and U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) members—just five days before the GEOINT 2013 Symposium was scheduled to kick off in Tampa—USGIF CEO Keith J. Masback announced the event would be postponed until spring 2014.

“As you well know, we are operating under the significant constraints of a government shutdown,” wrote Masback. “Recently the U.S. House of Representatives passed the ‘Pay Our Military Act,’ which allowed most Defense Department personnel to return to their jobs alongside the excepted personnel who were still working. However, the act also included language that has made it impossible for personnel to travel (except in direct support of operational forces) or attend events—including the GEOINT 2013 Symposium.”
