Due to COVID-19 considerations, details related to the 2021 Annual Meeting, as well as the AAPG ACE are pending. Please stay tuned.
On 24 March, 2021 The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) announced an agreement to hold joint annual meetings, the first of which will be held 26 September to 1 October 2021, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. This event will mark the first time the two groups’ annual conventions have been held together since 1955.
Traditionally, SEPM hosted their Annual Meeting in conjunction with AAPG ACE. We are currently working to adjust and finalize details for our SEPM members.
The merger of AAPG’s 2021 Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) and SEG’s 2021 International Exhibition and 91st Annual Meeting (SEG21) will result in one of the largest gatherings of earth scientists and energy professionals in the world. The two events will be fully integrated, online and in-person, with a comprehensive technical program featuring more than 20 concurrent technical sessions and a joint exhibition featuring the latest geoscience products and technologies.
Better serving the needs of geoscientists in a rapidly changing energy landscape and achieving synergies in event operations drove the organizations’ decision to hold integrated annual conventions. The hybrid event format will permit speakers, exhibitors, and attendees to participate at the Colorado Convention Center and online. The combined program will continue to feature many of the elements that attendees of both the AAPG and SEG conventions long have valued. One registration will give delegates access to the core technical sessions and exhibition and access to several ticketed training and social events. Exhibitors and sponsors will benefit from access to two audiences with a single engagement. The agreement is for five years, covering the organizations’ annual meetings through 2025.
