While topics related to GPR are frequently addressed at industry specific events, there has never been a place where all GPR users can go to learn from each other. Bringing users together from a variety of industries and applications gives participants a pathway for accelerated learning opportunities and provide a forum for discussion on user-critical topics.

This global GPR event is focused on bringing together new and experienced users from both the academic and private sector to benefit the industry by providing a forum for open discussion and continuous learning through shared ideas and experience.

We invite subject matter experts on any of these applications or issues to submit an abstract for consideration for the Global GPR Congress or Global Excavation Safety Conference.

Engineering CEUs available.

Difficulties that occurred and have been overcome in one industry can be shared and applied with technicians and professionals working in other industries. There is much crossover in reasons for failure and success across disciplines, but too often professionals working in different spaces do not have meaningful conversations with each other - or even know that each other exist.

For years, the Global Excavation Safety Conference has been the trusted source for damage prevention and public awareness education and networking as well as access to an array of industry resources for the entire community. With the implementation of Damage Prevention Week, we are offering a forum for those industry groups desiring in-depth training specific to their field of expertise. The GGPRC is a unique opportunity for GPR users worldwide.
