DGI is the most important and fruitful conference in GEOINT; the latest developments and the conclusions can instantly take effect on the field.
-Lt. Col. Babis Paraschou, Chief Geospatial Officer, European Union Force

I had a great time at the Defense Logistics Conference which I gained valuable insights and knowledge on the current and future trends of both DoD and the Logistics field perspectives by today's subject matter experts and senior leadership from different DoD agencies. I was able to network and find points of contact for work that I am currently doing in my project.
