International Natural Resources User Group Meeting in Beijing
The User Group Meeting is a live two-day meeting with a full program of technical presentations, social events, and networking. A varied program of informative and practical presentations from our global users and technical experts from industry and research awaits you on-site in a beautiful setting.
Attendees will have the opportunity to share with other users during a series of interactive sessions, and will also get a preview of technological advances. One of our goals is the exchange of ideas and experiences with the community, so there will be time for Q&A as well as panel discussions, and opportunities for networking over dinner.
The 2nd International Natural Resources User Group Meeting took place in April 2023 in Granada, Spain. In April 2024, the next User Group Meeting will be held in Beijing, China.
