Geothermal Event App

Last year the GRC debuted a mobile app for the GRC Annual Meeting & GEA GeoExpo+. 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.

This year all the abstracts for the technical session and a list of attendees will only be available on the app at the meeting. NO PAPER COPIES WILL BE AVAILABLE! Next year the GRC is planning on not printing the Final Program and instead using the app to present all information. Help us transition to a paperless meeting - download the app!

Sign-in to the app to enjoy the full features such as networking.

Download the app directly by searching for "GRC Annual Meeting" in the Google Play store for android or in the Apple App store.
