GEOFLUID - October 2018

The British Drilling Association (BDA) is pleased to be supporting The International Exhibition GEOFLUID Drilling & Foundations 2018, the international conference of Technology and Equipment for Prospecting, Extracting and Conveying Underground Fluids.

The event, which is being held at the PIACENZA EXPO - Loc. Le Mose Via Tirotti, 11 - 29122 Piacenza (ITALY), is open FREE to drilling, foundation works and geotechnical industry operators that register before via the website

Geofluid is a highly focused exhibition, aimed at visitors from specialised market sectors. This key feature enables exhibitors to have face-to-face contact with potential customers and strengthens their presence within the industry.

Geofluid benefits from being a self-contained, specialised show. This removes organisational and logistical problems normally experienced by exhibitors and visitors to other, more widely-based exhibitions, creating an ideal environment for developing close customer-client relationships.
