USGIF Opens State-of-the Art Trajectory Event Center
The foundation’s new Herndon, Va., event space offers affordability and flexible design options
Herndon, Virginia (August 14, 2019)— The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation ( USGIF) recently opened its own state-of-the-art event space, known as the Trajectory Event Center (TEC), in Herndon, Va. The TEC will be a year-round resource for the geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) community and any organization interested in hosting events in the Dulles Technology Corridor.
Featuring flexible meeting spaces for up to 300 people, cutting-edge audio-visual technology, and live streaming capabilities, the TEC is an ideal location to host corporate events, training sessions, sales meetings, product launches, receptions, table-top exhibits, hack-a-thons, and much more.
“Whether it is USGIF’s Young Professionals Group looking to combine networking and professional education, or providing a flexible space to accommodate the cadences of USGIF Working Groups, we recognized the potential for the TEC to help USGIF advance the GEOINT Community,” said The Honorable Jeffrey K. Harris, chairman of USGIF’s Board of Directors.
The TEC is in proximity to Dulles International Airport and a four-minute walk from the planned Innovation Center Metro stop on the silver line. Ample complimentary parking is also available.
“The TEC is unlike anything I’ve seen in the Northern Virginia area,” said USGIF COO Karin Soyster Fitzgerald. “This world-class facility is not only an ideal venue to host future USGIF events, but it is a terrific alternative to the typical hotel ballroom. We look forward to offering this resource for all members of the GEOINT Community and beyond.”
Anyone interested in viewing or potentially hosting an event at the new space is invited to stop by the TEC Open House from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19, at 13665 Dulles Technology Drive, Suite 150, Herndon, VA, 20171.
USGIF is a nonprofit educational foundation dedicated to promoting the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and developing a stronger GEOINT Community among government, industry, academia, professional organizations, and individuals who develop and apply GEOINT to address global security challenges. USGIF achieves its mission via its strategic pillars: Build the Community | Advance the Tradecraft | Accelerate Innovation.
