New York, NY, March 08, 2012 OpenGeo, the open source technology leader behind the OpenGeo Suite, will have a strong showing at the inaugural 2012 FOSS4G North America conference. With Gold Sponsor status, and eleven sessions on the program, OpenGeo is sure to make an impact at the conference. The Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial - North America (FOSS4G-NA) conference will be hosted by OSGeo North America from April 10th to 12th, 2012 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Confirmed keynote speakers include Michael Byrne, CIO of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Keith Barber Director at the NGA, and Josh Berkus, CEO of PostgreSQL Experts Inc.

OpenGeo’s Paul Ramsey has volunteered to serve as conference chair, returning to the position after successfully chairing the FOSS4G 2007 conference in Victoria, Canada. To kick off FOSS4G Ramsey will be delivering a keynote the morning of Tuesday, April 10.

Eddie Pickle, OpenGeo CEO, was pleased with the strong representation from his organization "It’s fulfilling to see the community express interest in hearing from us. I’m proud of our staff's open source credentials and credibility.” He continued "OpenGeo has made supporting FOSS4G and OSGeo a top priority; I can't think of anyone more qualified than Paul Ramsey to serve as conference chair. With Paul at the helm FOSS4G North America is sure to succeed."
