Brazil will have the honor of hosting the IAH and ALHSUD events, which will join ours, of the Brazilian Groundwater Association, in promoting the largest groundwater event that will take place.
Pandemic made it impossible to hold the face-to-face event, originally scheduled to take place from September 20th to 26th, 2020.
Our decision? It was innovating!
- Between the September 21st and 24th, 2020 we realized the first part of our event, ONLINE and FREE! All sessions are available for access through the ABAS YouTube channel. Watch here
- Between September 25th, 2020 and August 20th, 2021, we will have biweekly webinars and lives, among marketing, technical and scientific, inspirational, professional training themes, among others.
- Between 08/22/2021 and 08/26/2021 the events takes place in a 100% online format.
Registration is free, but must be done by clicking here.
The APP is now available, download it searching for IAH 2021 or click here.
We already have more than 900 people within our 10 WhatsApp groups, who discuss the themes defined for this edition of the Congress.
