Among the federal agencies making conference presentations are the White House, Office of Management and Budget and Office of Science and Technology Policy, Small Business Administration, Federal Highway Administration, NOAA Office of Coast Survey and Office of Space Commercialization, Department of Defense, and Federal Aviation Administration.

"MAPPS is the only geospatial association that hosts a forum with this format and content. This conference will provide our members an opportunity to learn about legislation, policies, programs, budgets and other important information affecting their firms and the geospatial market. Of course, it is also another excellent networking opportunity with other MAPPS members."
