What is DGI?

DGI is the only large-scale annual meeting in Europe of military and civilian geospatial intelligence agency leaders. The conference and exhibition provide a unique platform for 600 international GEOINT experts and attendees to exchange experiences, share plans and national programme updates, showcase the latest technologies and shape the future of the industry together.

DGI combines over 30 hours of interactive learning and 15 hours of intimate networking to enable geospatial intelligence experts from over 40 countries to shape the future of their national GEOINT capability together.

With input from the most senior GEOINT leaders across the world, DGI also provides you with the most up-to-date view of geo-political risks that will impact your organisation in the near term and for which you need to be prepared.
