Connect & Engage at the Nexus Conference- copy

June 9 & 10, 2021

Use your time outside your sessions to make connections! Meet with industry leaders at the trade show, learn about innovative research and projects at the poster showcase, and join other professionals in our themed networking rooms.

Join a themed networking room

One of the strengths of APEGA’s professional development conference has always been the opportunity for members to network with fellow professionals and make new connections.

With virtual networking eliminating the limitations of location, professionals from across the province can participate in this conference—meaning you’ll be able to connect with a broader roster of new and seasoned professional engineers and geoscientists.

During lunch and at the end of each day, you will be able to join others in a variety of themed networking rooms to discuss specific topics, industries, or disciplines.
