AGS not deterred – will bid again to bring the International Conference to Sydney in 2021
The Australian Geomechanics Society will again bid to host the International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. Having narrowly missed out on the 2017 conference to South Korea we are confident that our experience of the bid process will place us in a strong position to bring the quadrennial conference to Sydney in 2021.
The conference brings significant technical and commercial benefits. The 2013 conference in Paris attracted over 1,600 delegates including many of the world’s leading geotechnical practitioners. We would love our members to benefit from this experience in Australia.
Our bid was officially launched at the International Conference on Environmental Geotechnics in Melbourne in November 2014. The host city will be decided at the 2017 conference.
If you would like to help on our bid team please contact Graham Scholey, firstname.lastname@example.org. We need people with lobbying skills, logistics expertise and people who know influential people in the geotechnical world globally!
