The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) will be hosting a new, integrated annual conference and exhibition: IMAGE—The International Meeting for Applied Geoscience and Energy. The two societies agreed earlier this year to hold joint annual meetings for the next five years, the first of which will be a hybrid event held from Sept. 26 to Oct. 1, 2021, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colo., and online.
IMAGE ’21 will welcome speakers, exhibitors and attendees to participate in-person at the Colorado Convention Center or online, or both. The comprehensive technical program will feature more than 20 concurrent technical sessions, and a joint exhibition will showcase the latest geoscience products and technologies. One registration will give delegates access to the core technical sessions, the exhibition, and several other events.
“Geologists and geophysicists often work together in teams, learning from one another and sharing methods and observations to deliver solutions more valuable and durable than what they can achieve without multidisciplinary collaboration,” says SEG President Maurice Nessim. “Our organizations complement each other’s strengths. Through our new collaboration on IMAGE, we can better serve the needs of geoscientists.”
SEG and AAPG are global leaders in disseminating high-quality applied-geoscience knowledge and data, and together they have created one powerhouse meeting. IMAGE will be the go-to event for gaining the latest technical insights while bringing together multiple disciplines of the geosciences sector. Registration for the event is now open.
“Our members, exhibitors, and sponsors are excited about this collaboration and are looking forward to coming together for IMAGE,” said AAPG President Rick Fritz. “Our organizations have joined forces on this meeting to allow us to better serve the needs of geoscientists in a rapidly changing energy landscape.”
SEG and AAPG are currently booking exhibit space and sponsorships for IMAGE. The exhibition will include traditional elements of both organization’s events, such as AAPG’s International Pavilion and SEG’s Consortium Showcase. The show will also provide access to nearly 600 poster presentations and other activities to ensure a valuable experience for attendees. For more information about IMAGE, visit www.imageevent.org.
