While planning continues and excitement builds for Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s 99th Annual Conference, organizers expect many delegates to benefit from the conference’s flexible options.
This year, the conference’s location in downtown Vancouver will give many delegates the ability to choose whether they want to attend the entire conference, the parts that interest them the most, or a mix of the two.
Ailene Lim, Manager of Member Services and conference organizer, thinks that many delegates will take advantages of the conference’s flexibility. “Delegates that work in downtown Vancouver can slip out of office for a day and come to the conference on a one-day package,” she says. “They could also take in a networking event, like Women in Engineering and Geoscience Division Networking Evening on October 17, or the Pub Night on October 18.
Lim says other delegates might want to attend as much as they can, including the President’s Awards Gala (October 19) and Keynote Breakfasts and Lunches.
Conference options are designed to accommodate both preferences. Delegates can choose from one-, two-, three-day packages, or individual networking or keynote events an à-la-carte basis.
Advanced (online) registration closes on October 15. Limited registration will be accepted on-site, but space will be limited for some events. To learn more, or to register the conference before October 15, visit egbc.ca/ac18.
