The Rocky Mountain Geo-Conference is postponed until the spring due to the deteriorating COVID situation and the increased public health restrictions announced this week.
The conference is now planned for April 16th.
Dear Rocky Mountain Geo-Conference Authors, Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Attendees
One thing that makes the Rocky Mountain Geo-Conference special is that it allows local geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, geophysicists, drillers, lab techs, students, and vendors of all backgrounds to come together, learn, laugh, and catch up with each other while listening to a variety of speakers. This local focus and interaction are why we prepared a hybrid conference instead of a full virtual one. The idea was to have 75 people on site while others joined in remotely to the live sessions. This appeared feasible until Adams County announced on October 24th that due to the deteriorating Covid-19 situation, they would move to Safer At Home Level 3 starting October 28th. This would limit indoor events to a maximum of 25 people.
After discussing the options with the speakers and exhibitors, the RMGC Steering Committee decided to delay the conference to April 16, 2021 at the same hotel. The intent is still for the conference to be a hybrid. We will also be developing a virtual tradeshow to promote our sponsors and exhibitors within the next few weeks, as well. We will keep you up-to-date on this and the conference.
Anyone who has registered will keep the registration. All sponsorships and exhibitor spaces will remain in place.
Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you in April.
