Generous sponsors have once again shown their support for a major IGS conference: GeoAmericas 2020.
The 4th Pan American Conference on Geosynthetics was due to take place in Rio de Janeiro in April, this year, but will now run entirely online from October 26-31. Keynote speakers, technical sessions, young member events, short courses, and networking will be accessed through the conference’s dedicated virtual platform.
None of this would be possible without gold sponsors CTG ABINT, Strata, Maccaferri and TDM Brasil, and silver sponsors Axter Coletanche, Concrete Canvas, Lianyi, Hyma Plastic, Huesker, Tech Ground, Nortène, Thrace Group and Tri Ambiental, as well as more than 40 additional sponsors from a range of geosynthetics industries.
Together with Brazil Chapter of the IGS, they have created a not-to-be-missed opportunity. Delegates will be able to interact with many of the sponsors on Thursday, October 29, during the conference’s ‘Industry Day’ between 1pm and 5pm (UTC time). All gold and silver sponsors will deliver a technical presentation – so set a reminder for this unique showcase.
IGS Brazil Chapter President Victor Pimentel said: “We greatly appreciate the support of our sponsors, who have remained loyal during the challenges of transforming a live conference in Rio de Janeiro into a virtual one. We’re pleased we can offer delegates exclusive access to these amazing businesses and give our sponsors a worldwide platform to connect and network.”
Participants can access the full conference programme through a virtual platform specially designed for GeoAmericas 2020. All participants and sponsors will also be able to download an app to facilitate networking before and during the event.
