GeoAmericas 2016 Attendee Event Signups are Available!

We look forward to welcoming you to Miami soon. We have a few things to mention as you prepare for your trip. The weather in Miami next week looks like it will range from a low of 63°F to a high of 82° (17–28°C) with about 50% humidity. Please take the time to review the list of conference activities and opportunities. Some items require advance sign up, such as the Beach Volleyball Social, IAGI Proctor Training, Short Courses, and the Sales Workshop. This will help us offer you the best possible experience. All official conference activities will take place at the Loews Hotel. Transportation and other helpful information can be found on our FAQ page on the website. We look forward to welcoming you to Miami!

Sunday afternoon IAGI will offer a Proctor Training Course. Attendees to this class will learn how to administer the IAGI CWT Welding Exams. There is no fee for this program; however in order to help IAGI prepare, please take the time to let them know you are coming by registering.

There are some really exceptional Short Courses at GeoAmericas and there are still some seats left in these courses. Discounts may be available for the few remaining seats, please contact Elizabeth Peggs directly if you are interested.
