Geodrilling 2006 - bigger and better than last year

May 16, 2006

The organisers of GeoDrilling 2006 have only a few exhibition spaces available and are confident that this June's show is going to be bigger and better than last year, with over 1500 visitors expected, in excess of 100 exhibitors and the addition of the underground construction industry which will expand the scope of the show.

The outdoor exhibition area is sold out to companies wishing to take advantage of the excellent live educational / demonstration facilities with Bulroc UK, Dywidag-Systems International and Drilcorp, amongst others, demonstrating their range of products. The indoor space is being snapped up fast with companies eager to be part of the action. Exhibitors include Boart Longyear, Atlas Copco, Sandvik, Dando, Roger Bullivant, Raeburn and many more.

GeoDrilling 2006 will also host a series of 'state-of-the-industry' presentations which will kick off with keynote speaker, Derek Davis, chairman of the Geological Society and will feature key issues facing the industry today. Topics such as geothermal renewable energy, exploration drilling, trenchless construction and ground investigation will draw some of the industry’s key speakers such as Dr. Martin Preene of Golder Associates, Tim Daffern of Wardell Armstrong and Paul Jacobs of Fugro Engineering Services.

Luke Clancy, Editor of GeoDrilling International is confident that "with the talent and expertise among the many speakers scheduled to join the platform at GeoDrilling 2006, the event looks set to provide and essential forum for discussion of all the issues important to drilling today". Attendance at these sessions counts towards Continuing Professional Development for the major professional bodies including ICE, CIOB and RICS.

Taking place on 21 – 22 June, the show is organised by Mining Communications with cooperation from the British Drilling Association (BDA). GeoDrilling 2006 is also endorsed by The Ground Forum, an organisation designed to provide a liaison between the geotechnical learned societies and trade associations in the UK, for the benefit of the ground engineering community.

GeoDrilling 2006 is FREE to all visitors that register in advance. For further information about the event, or to register to attend, visit
