GeoAmericas 2020 - 4th Pan-American Conference On Geosynthetics

After been held in Mexico in 2008, Peru in 2012 and the USA in 2016, GeoAmericas comes to Brazil in its 4th edition, which will be held in April 2020 in Rio de Janeiro.  In addition to a rich technical program focused on the most relevant topics for the technical community of geosynthetics today, several social events and a wide area available for technical exhibits for the geosynthetic industry will be offered. English is the official language, but activities in Spanish and Portuguese will also compose the event’s program. We anticipate over 1,000 participants from more than 30 countries, which ensures both broad representativeness and a plurality of cultures and markets.

EuroGeo 7 - 7th European Geosynthetics Congress

We are pleased to invite you to the 7th EuroGeo conference, to be held in Warsaw, Poland in 2020. Poland is a country with more than a thousand years of recorded history and has a strong European identity. The country was first to free itself from communist domination in 1989 and is now fully democratic and a member of the European Union. Poland is a leader in infrastructure development in the region, which has resulted in many extraordinary projects. Warsaw, with its central location, is an ideal base for exploring the country. Today, the city is a dynamic cultural and business centre, with strong links not only to Western Europe but also to the East. PSG-IGS, a Polish Chapter of IGS is young but thriving organization successfully cooperating with several chapters within Central Europe. It is an honour to host such a prestigious conference in Warsaw and We sincerely believe that the sessions will prove to be a success. Come to Warsaw, bring your family and enjoy your stay in our capital and help us to make this Conference not only scientifically profitable but also an unforgettable event.

We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw!
