We will attend the 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics, in Seoul, Korea


The conference’s theme is “Geosynthetics: Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Development”. We will be based at booth #63-64  with a wide range of our specialists from all over the world. Come and visit us!

The 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics (11ICG) will take place at the COEX from September 16th-21st, 2018 in Seoul, Korean and it’s organized by the Korean Geosynthetics Society (KGSS) and the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS). This major event, which is due to feature around 1,000 geotechnical engineering experts from over 100 countries, offers exceptional opportunities for engineers and construction professionals from all over the world.

As a player in the geosynthetic market, we will be represented by a wide international delegation. Our specialists will be making a series of presentations on various aspects of this technology (such as its environmental friendliness) and its numerous applications, including retaining walls and soil reinforcement, basal reinforcement, drainage and erosion control. Check below to find a list of our upcoming presentations at the many sessions that will be held at the 11ICG.
