This year, we, the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (, are celebrating our 20th anniversary. We
were established in 1999 to promote and advance the science of geology and its professional application in
all disciplines. We provide professional accreditation for geoscientists in Ireland and promote the interests
of our members at home and internationally. Membership is open to all practising geoscientists who meet
the required standards of qualification and experience (

The IGI has, over the last twenty years gone from strength to strength, thanks to our members who voluntarily represent the IGI not only at board level but through representation on various working groups, conferences and committees both nationally and internationally. This membership-led ethos of the IGI has created a close-knit community.

To mark the occasion of our 20th anniversary we are hosting a one day conference / networking event on
Friday 11th October 2019. The event will be held at the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, and will be a mix of  lectures, discussion panels and networking events, followed by a Gala Dinner.

Why be a sponsor?

The IGI’s 20th anniversary event will be a valuable opportunity to reach our membership of over 250 geoscientists based in Ireland and globally. Delegates will span the entire range of geoscience disciplines including the minerals and exploration, environment, contaminated land, hydrogeology, petroleum industries as well as academic and government practitioners. These geoscientists will provide the raw materials for the low carbon future, map the consequences of climate change and design our defences.

This will be a unique opportunity to promote your business and services to the professional geoscience community. The conference will host both national and international speakers in the field of the climate emergency and community engagement.

We are offering multiple opportunities for commercial sponsorship throughout this networking-focussed event. These range from Event Sponsorship packages to small scale packages. So please review the various packages below and we would be happy to discuss any of them with you to see which package best suits
