Europe’s largest regional conference on geosynthetics is on target for a successful event next year as organizers prepare for new dates.
EuroGeo7 was due to take place in September this year at the historic Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland. Health and safety concerns over the impact of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic led to organizers moving the event to May next year. It will now take place on May 16-19, 2021.
Hosted by the Polish Chapter of the IGS, next year’s conference is set to contain the same packed programme of seminars, workshops, a stimulating social schedule and lectures from world-renowned keynote speakers. The popular business exhibition will also return, where all exhibitors have been confirmed for the event next year, where delegates can explore all the latest the geosynthetics industry has to offer.
IGS President Chungsik Yoo said: “The global pandemic has had a profound impact on people’s lives and livelihoods. It was absolutely the right decision of the Polish Chapter to postpone the event to next year.
“Delegates can expect the same stimulating programme of activities in one of the flagship events in the IGS calendar. We’re also delighted our keynote speakers have committed to attend next year. We appreciate the patience and understanding of delegates, guests, sponsors and exhibitors, to ensure we can still deliver a thought-provoking conference in a safe global environment.”
Conference chairman Dr Jacek Kawalec said: “We’re very pleased we are still able to still deliver our unique conference next year and look forward to welcoming our visitors and exhibitors to the biggest geosynthetics conference in the region.”
