The planning for HUESKER Inc. yearly event GeoForum Charlotte 2018 (formerly GeoPass) is underway.

The format, aiming to provide a networking opportunity for consultants, academia and state agencies, is still the same. We have lined up an experienced group of geosynthetic professionals to talk about applications relating to transportation projects.

In addition to the traditional visit to our state of the art production facility, we have included in the program a small exposition to demonstrate geosynthetic applications and concepts.

We are excited about this invite-only 3rd GeoForum event and you are included in the select list of attendees. Please see below the list of confirmed presenters and click on the registration button to confirm your attendance.

We look forward to talking geosynthetics with you!
