Geosynthetics Middle EastHeld under the patronage of the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City, the 6th Geosynthetics Middle East (GeoME 2013) conference from SKZ will take place 29-30 October 2013 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
With a main focus on Infrastructure, Transportation, Oil & Gas, Water, Waste, and Energy, key industry experts will present their papers on:

  • Railways
  • Roads
  • Airports
  • Seaports
  • Tunneling
  • Brownfield Development
  • Groundwater Protection
  • Water Management
  • Waste Containment
  • Other topics involving geosynthetics

GeoME 2013 Doubles Exhibition Space
Due to the increased attraction from international companies and a sold out technical exhibition in 2012, we have once again doubled our exhibition space.
National and international companies will showcase their services and products in: Geotextiles, Geomembranes, Geosynthetic Clay Liners, Geogrids, Geocomposites, Geocells, Geopipes, Water Management Systems, Leachate Collection Systems, Irrigation Solutions, Erosion Control, and more.
