Geothermal Event App

Last year the GRC debuted a mobile app for the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA Geothermal Energy Expo. We again provide an app for this year's geothermal event.

All the essential information is available including a day-to-day schedule, descriptions of individual events, abstracts for technical papers, information on exhibitors at the trade show, and maps of the facilities and of the local area.

After a simple download and installation the app can be personalized with your own schedule and notes on activities. When you sign-in to the app you will be able to interact with other attendees and build an on-site network. Attendees will also be able to post their own photos and comments to the app for all to see on the "activity stream".
