The GEO Week consists of side events starting Monday, 23 October, an exhibition opening on Tuesday, 24 October and running through Thursday, 26 October, the ExCom on Friday and the plenary itself from 25 to 26 October 2017 in Washington D.C. EARSC as GEO Participation Organisation has been invited to bring delegates to the Plenary, but will also be present at the Exhibition area and co-organise with NOOA a side event to foster discussion, develop and expose case studies to demonstrate the value to society coming from the use of EO data.

EARSC will bring as part of its delegation some European services providers (Airbus, Consultingwhere, e-geos, GIM, GMV, IABG, Sinergise, Terrasigna and Visioterra).

The Exhibition represents a key component of a successful GEO Week by providing tangible examples of the use of Earth observation to inform decision-making. EARSC promotes its members in the EC booth (#209) Panels 13/14.
