Furthermore, the Contamination Expo Series is co-located with the Flood Expo and the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo. This gives attendees extraordinary opportunities to network with professionals from these critical engineering sectors, view the latest materials for advancing infrastructure, and discover new services.

Companies participating across these events include Cofra, Concrete Canvas, Gripple, Huesker, Propex, TenCate, Terram, Thrace Group, and many others with geosynthetics expertise.

Each Expo also offer high-level seminars and other educational opportunities. For example, on September 27, Lee Church of Concrete Canvas will speak on composite mats in civil engineering; Stephen Hancock of Terram will speak on flood control; and John Wortelboer of TenCate Geosynthetics BV will speak on how sediments can help prevent flooding.
