2013 User Group Meeting – The Geotechnical Data Journey – Transformed

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Keynetix are delighted to announce that this year’s User Group Meeting and Conference will take place on Tuesday 26th November at the Crowne Plaza on the NEC site.  The hotel has been chosen as it is close to rail and road links as well as right next to Birmingham International Airport.

UGMExhibitorArea In 1999 Roger Chandler and Rodney Hutchinson wrote a paper detailing the concept of “The Geotechnical Data Journey” – At this year’s UGM we will be revisiting this work and looking at how the data journey has started to transform over the last few years and how it will continue to change in the next couple of years.

The morning session will take a high level look at key areas of change and examine how your software will help you maximise the benefit of these changes.   There will also be case studies from users who have already started to transform the way they work.

After lunch we will be holding “round-the-table” discussions and presentations on a whole range of topics from lab testing to BIM.  You can also use this time to catch up with some companies who will be exhibiting at the event.

The session will close with the most important part – your chance to vote on where the products will go in the future.


On the following two days, we will be holding additional training sessions at our offices in nearby Redditch, priority will be given to our overseas/traveling clients who will be able to book these training days as soon as we open the UGM registration.  We hope that with the easy access via Birmingham International Airport and two full days of training that some of our international users will be able to join us this year.

Registration will open for this event (and training) in September so keep a watch on our twitter news feed for more information. If you don’t tweet just keep an eye out for the User Group article in next month’s news review or check the front page of our website for the announcement.

If you have any questions about the UGM or would like to present a case study or exhibit at the event please use the form below to let us know.
