In light of the developing coronavirus outbreak and directive from the Government of Alberta Chief Medical Officer, the GeoConvention Board, our partner societies along with GAC, MAC and IAH-CNC have made the difficult decision to postpone GeoConvention 2020 to ensure we are past the significant challenges associated with the COVID-19. In working with the Convention Center, we have confirmed new dates, August 31 – September 2, 2020. GeoConvention is advising that participants postpone booking travel and accommodation until appropriate government authorities have indicated it is safe to do so. We feel that by taking a proactive approach to postpone the program now, we can maintain the high level of technical programming our attendees expect and a highly engaged, diverse audience that our supporters look for when partnering with GeoConvention.
Once in a decade, the CSPG, CSEG and CWLS partner with GAC, MAC and IAH to bring together a fully integrated geoscience program. GeoConvention 2020 is your once-in-a-decade opportunity to learn and knowledge share with a wide variety of earth science professionals.
