Geov8 (geo + innovate) Virtual Expo was created to disrupt, and be an alternative to, on-site expos that are the center of industry and business to consumer (B2C) relationships in the professional marketplace. Colburn Strategic Partners developed this idea to broadly present some of the newest technology and innovators that shape the geospatial industry, using the technology of online video broadcasting and webinar software.

The event is still accepting submissions for the final speaker and sponsorship slots. If you are interested in becoming a speaker, sponsor, or attendee of the Geov8 Virtual Expo, then you can find more information at www.geov8.com.
