BGA Annual Conference 2019: Celebrating 70 years of the BGA, London

About this event

Each year the BGA holds its Annual Conference at the Institution of Civil Engineers and this year we will:

  • Celebrate the past 70 years of the BGA, including a brief history of the formation of the BGA
  • Showcase previous geotechnical developments and achievements
  • Understand lessons learnt that can be used today
  • Provide an insight into potential future developments, innovations and challenges, and how the geotechnical community will seek to achieve the UK Government’s aim of Construction 2025.

It is a popular, full-day event open to all which embraces a wide range of geotechnical challenges.  With the theme of innovation, and the increasing use of digital technology in geotechnical engineering, exhibitors are encouraged to provide interactive displays to enable attendees to use new software tools, use virtual reality and augmented reality tools, inspect ground models, GIS systems, digital surveys (drone/LiDAR) etc.

Following lunch, the BGA’s AGM will take place at which prizes will be presented to the recipients of various BGA prizes and awards.  The day will conclude with a drinks reception in the Exhibition Area of the Great Hall offering networking opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere.

The programme can be downloaded here.
