Registration is open for DFI’s 46th Annual Conference on Deep Foundations taking place October 12-15 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas and online — making DFI46 accessible to a worldwide audience.
The theme is Winning Practices and Ace Technology, with a focus on how to “improve the odds” of generating high-value foundation solutions when “the house” is the ever-changing challenges of variable ground conditions, extreme events and demanding project constraints.
Papers and panel discussions will explore and debate demanding geotechnical and foundation variables, including difficult and unanticipated soil conditions, natural hazards and resiliency, seismic design and construction techniques, risk mitigation and sustainability practices, innovative case histories and new methods and equipment. The conference will highlight how the geotechnical and foundation industry “increases the odds” of high-value, high-quality projects using innovations, advancements, expertise and experience.
In addition to the technical program, the conference includes technical committee meetings; keynote lectures; the Hal Hunt Lecture on Communications; Expo Sessions presented by DFI’s Manufacturers, Suppliers and Service Providers Committee; a Student Activities Program; a New Faces Program; the Awards Banquet including the presentation of the Distinguished Service Award and Outstanding Project Award; networking opportunities; a 5K Fun Run/Walk; and 140+ exhibits featuring innovative products and services.
