The GeoMEast 2018 International Congress and Exhibition will be held in Cairo, Egypt, from 24 to 28 November under the patronage of Egyptian Prime Minister and Minister of Housing, Mostafa Madbouly, with the support of many local and international institutions and engineering associations.
The GeoMEast series is managed by the Soil-Structure Interaction Group in Egypt (SSIGE) and the Housing and Building National Research Centre (HBRC) and is supported by a number of leading international professional organisations.
The first edition of the GeoMEast2017 was inaugurated in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, with the attendance of more than 400 local and international experts from 70 countries around the world, specialised in construction and infrastructure, as well as representatives of the companies and industry-specific bodies operating in Egypt. The conference aims to spread knowledge and work on the transfer of modern technology which can be implemented in national projects carried out by the Egyptian state.
About 30 international companies specialised in geosynthetics engineering and sustainable infrastructure will participate in the conference.
The CEO of SSIGE and secretary general of the conference, Hany Farouk Shehata, said, “GeoMEast 2018 is the first international forum to be held in Egypt and the Arab world to bring together Arab and foreign specialists from many countries in order to contribute to the development of Arab countries’ strategies in achieving sustainable development. In addition, this will maximise the output of national projects implemented by Arab countries, especially the Egyptian state, including the Suez Canal axis area, the New Administrative Capital, New El Alamein, national roads, and many other national projects.”
