Register for Global GPR Congress

March 22-23, 2021

"There is so much crossover in reasons for failure and success across disciplines, but too often professionals working in different spaces do not have meaningful conversations with each other ."

The Global GPR Congress is a unique opportunity for GPR users worldwide

While topics related to GPR are frequently addressed at industry specific events, there has never been a place where all GPR users can go to learn from each other. Bringing users together from a variety of industries and applications gives participants a pathway for accelerated learning opportunities, and provides a forum for discussion on user-critical topics.

This global GPR event is focused on bringing together new and experienced users from both the academic and private sector. This will benefit the industry by providing a forum for open discussion and continuous learning through shared ideas and experience.

We invite subject matter experts on any of these applications or issues to submit an abstract for consideration for the Global GPR Congress or Global Excavation Safety Conference.
