Geotechnica 2016 Review

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 Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

This year’s Geotechnica took on a different format to previous year’s, as its main focus was the conference element and it was hosted at Brunel University on their 50th Birthday.

The event was a great success and we found it very useful, talking to so many key people.  We particularly enjoyed the after dinner and Keynote speaker, Professor Iain Stewart, who talked so passionately about geology and what people perceive it to be about that he had the entire audience captivated.

We were also very impressed with some of the models made from our wonderful bouncing putty, keep up the good work and don’t forget to tweet us an image @keynetix.

We are now busily working on getting in contact with those people we saw at the show and we look forward to Geotechnica 2017, which will be back at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre next July.
