Geosynthetics Conference 2021

April 1st, 2020 / By: / GeoWatch

Participate in the co-located program

Start making plans now to not only join us in Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 21–24, 2021, but to be a part of the program. Geosynthetics Conference 2021 features the second co-location with the International Erosion Control Association’s Annual Conference. The last time these two shows got together (Portland, Ore., in 2015), it was a smashing success. There were approximately 3,000 registrants between the two shows exploring the exhibit hall and engaging with technical education. 

Both events will honor registrations from either show, which means more educational options and many new faces in the audience.  

The co-location offers some new opportunities, including:

  • Double the education and exhibitor offerings
  • A chance for expanded networking during the combined Keynote Breakfast and Welcome Reception
  • Joint off-site field tours
  • Young Professionals Reception—the location is a secret for now but expect it to be fun and on target
