Aug. 8, 2013, Las Vegas – Members of the international geothermal community plan to discuss their successes and emerging market opportunities at the Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) Annual Meeting & Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) Geothermal Energy Expo in Las Vegas from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2.

At the show, attendees can learn about the latest developments in geothermal energy, and network with geothermal companies, academics, financiers, policy leaders, students, and other individuals. Last year, the expo and meeting hosted more than 2,300 representatives from more than 39 countries and participants from six continents.

The Annual Meeting & Expo will offer three international market events:
• International Luncheon Sept. 30 (12:00-1:30 pm): A ticketed lunch focusing on geothermal development in Kenya. Tickets may be purchased through GRC at www.geothermal.org. Tickets may also be purchased at registration.

• International Session (Sept. 30, 1:30-4:45 pm): A series of speakers summarizing geothermal developments in international regions. Open to participants in the GEA Expo or GRC Annual Meeting.

• International Visitors Presentations (Oct. 1, first program at 10:00 am; second program at 2:00 pm): Informal presentations by international participants on business developments and opportunities around the world. Open to participants in the GEA Expo or GRC Annual Meeting. To sign up for a speaking slot with GEA, contact Becky Little at becky@geo-energy.org or 202-454-5256.

“We are developing a program that reaches out to meet the needs of the international geothermal community. If you are in the geothermal business in Africa, Europe, the Pacific Region, or elsewhere, this is where you can do business, make connections, and meet companies with the latest technology," said Karl Gawell, the GEA executive director, in a media release. "We expect participants will find the program content rich, timely and appealing.”
