For more than 25 years, AAPG’s International Conference and Exhibition has delivered strong technical programs, diverse short courses and field trips, state-of-the-art displays and networking activities designed to facilitate new business development. Geoscientists and petroleum industry professionals from 60+ countries gather annually at ICE to build their skills, network with peers and purchase products and services that will take their E&P programs to the next level.
ICE 2015 in Melbourne broke new ground as the first-ever ICE co-presented by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). Expanding on existing long-term collaboration efforts between the two societies on research projects, publications, distinguished lecturers and topical conferences and workshops, the new joint venture will facilitate a series of international events under AAPG’s proven “ICE” brand. Subsequently, SEG will operate an ICE event in the first half of each year and AAPG in the second half of each year.
The two societies will work closely together to ensure a seamless format and the highest level of quality across the conferences. As a collaborative event ICE will have a collective reach of more than 80,000 society members and an exponential number of customers worldwide – an amazing recipe for what could become the most important, credible geosciences exchange for years to come.
