Mala Geoscience Mount Sopris Instrument Co.Conference Evening Robertson Geologging LtdThis year’s conference evening will be held at Athena, originally Seistronixdesigned in 1936 as an Odeon Cinema. These days the Athena W&R Instrumentsrepresents one of the largest, most extravagant buildings in Zonge International Inc.the region, right in the centre of Leicester. Different localand exotic dishes will be on offer to reflect the multiculturalsociety Leicester is today. It is easy to access and at a 20-minute Exhibition and sponsor programmewalk from the venue. All full delegates are invited. Near Surface 2011 includes an exhibition and sponsor programme. The exhibition will be held on the lower ground floor and ground floor of the venue. Already 25 companies have signed up as exhibitor and occupy about 200 square meter of exhibit space. On Monday 6 September field demonstrations are scheduled for live and interactive product demonstrations. Participating in the exhibition and/or sponsor programme will give you high visibility in a high quality and uncluttered environment that makes your message stand out. It is still possible to participate in both programmes!
