This article has been UPDATED (12 March 2020) to reflect the event’s new dates. Read more about the COVID-19 announcement.

GeoU 2020 will be held 16 – 19 November 2020 in Austin, Texas during what is annually the fall CQA Week events: dirty boots and high-level professional development that can propel your work in the next busy season and beyond. Tomorrow’s success requires a strong knowledge of geosynthetics.

Geosynthetics are often a small part of any project’s overall geotechnical works—maybe only a single layer in a large, engineered system—but their beneficial impact on infrastructure service lives and cost is tremendous. They transform what is possible in infrastructure, enhance how we define project success, and give engineering firms tools to build new revenue streams.

Make sure your team has the right skills to respond to today’s opportunities and changing regulations. Attend GeoU 2020 in Austin, Texas, November 16 – 19.
