GeoU 2021 will be held 20 – 23 April 2021 in Austin, Texas during what is annually the spring CQA Week events: dirty boots and high-level professional development that can propel tomorrow’s success for engineering businesses and agencies through a a strong knowledge of geosynthetics and related regulations.

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 2021 in Austin, Texas, April 20 – 23.
