News | October 1, 2023 | By: Barbara J. Connett


What is Geotechnical Frontiers? Geotechnical Frontiers is a specialty conference event combining the biennial Geosynthetics Conference and the Geo-Institute’s annual Geo-Congress. Generally held every six years (the pandemic pushed this one to eight years), this event is where the industry unites to share developments in geotechnical engineering and technologies.

Attendees can look forward to plenary lectures from some of the brightest stars in the industry, short courses, technical sessions, panel discussions, student competitions, a vast array of suppliers in the exhibit hall and networking opportunities galore, including the popular welcome reception. 


Who should attend? You and a couple thousand other attendees, exhibitors, speakers, instructors, organizers, presenters and sponsors.
