Social Events

In addition to the comprehensive technical program, GeoManitoba 2012 will provide opportunities for delegates to meet, mingle and get to know their professional colleagues in a relaxed setting, outside of the technical and business streams.

Numerous social events are planned and will be included in the full conference registration packages, or can be ordered "a la carte" by delegates attending part of the conference and for accompanying guests.

The tentative program of Social Events includes the following:

Icebreaker and Exhibitor Reception
Sunday, September 30, 2012, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Come and meet up with old acquaintances, or introduce yourself to new colleagues from across the country and other parts of the world, as we join together for a complimentary "drinks and nibbles" cocktail reception in the Trade Exhibition Hall.

5th Annual CGS Awards Gala
Monday, October 1, 2012, 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

This is our time to celebrate the meritorious and professional service achievements of our CGS colleagues. In keeping with tradition, the Winnipeg LOC is planning an up-scale evening with fine dining and great entertainment!

Winnipeg Local Colour Night – The Manitoba Museum
Tuesday, October 2, 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Join us for an evening of food, drinks and entertainment as we discover Manitoba’s history at The Manitoba Museum. Only here can you travel through time to the roaring 20's, explore a 17th century ship, and view treasures from around the world.

Be sure to bring your partner and include these popular social events in your plans when attending GeoManitoba 2012!

More information on our Social Events will be posted early in the spring of 2012.
