Social Events

In addition to the comprehensive technical program, the 2011 Pan-Am CGS Geotechnical Conference will provide opportunities for delegates to meet, mingle and get to know their professional colleagues in a relaxed setting, outside of the technical and business streams.

Numerous social events are planned and will be included in the full conference registration packages, or can be ordered “a la carte” by delegates attending part of the conference and for accompanying guests.

The tentative program of Social Events includes the following:

Icebreaker and Exhibitor Reception
Sunday, October 2, 2011 – 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Come and meet up with old acquaintances, or introduce yourself to new colleagues from across the country and other parts of the world, as we join together for a complimentary “drinks and nibbles” cocktail reception in the Trade Exhibition Hall.

4th Annual CGS Awards Banquet
Monday, October 3, 2011 – 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Help us celebrate the meritorious and professional service achievements of distinguished CGS members over a good meal and a glass of wine – or two!

Toronto Local Colour Night
Tuesday, October 4, 2009 – 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
A CGS tradition is to go off-site for dinner and entertainment on one of the conference evenings to show delegates the “flavour and colour” of the host city at a near-by attraction. While planning is still underway, possible venues include the Royal Ontario Museum, the CN Tower and Ontario Place. We’ll keep you informed as plans progress.

Be sure to bring your partner and include these popular social events in your plans when attending the 2011 Pan-Am CGS Geotechnical Conference! More information on our Social Events will be posted early in 2011.
