USA: 2017 International Annual Meeting: “Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future”
Oct 22 – Oct 25 all-day

In the 1960s and 70s, it was recognized that phosphorus runoff was negatively impacting the Everglades Protection Area. By the mid-80s, one solution was use of constructed wetlands, called Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs). STAs biologically filter the water flowing into the protected area, reduce phosphorus, and improve the ecosystem services of the soil and plant life.

The “Soil Processes and Performance in Constructed Wetlands” symposium planned at the Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting in Tampa, FL, will address this important topic. The symposium will be held Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 9:30 AM. The meeting is sponsored by the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and the Soil Science Society of America.

USA: ULI Fall Meeting 2017 @ Los Angeles Convention Center
Oct 23 – Oct 26 all-day

Building resilient communities is high on the agenda at the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) 2017 Fall Meeting, set for October 23-26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles. This topic – a particularly timely one given the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the approach of Hurricane Irma – will be explored within the context of a wide range of urban issues such as housing affordability, gentrification and social equity, technology advancements, and demographic shifts, all with a focus on the short- and long-term implications for real estate. The meeting will also include programming specific to the extraordinary transformation of downtown Los Angeles into a highly sought-after place to live as well as work.

NBA basketball legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the chairman and chief executive officer of Magic Johnson Enterprises, an investment conglomerate valued at an estimated $1 billion dollars; Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan; and globally renowned architect Frank Gehry, who designed the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, will headline an impressive list of keynote speakers as well as thought leaders who are influencing the built environment through their work. In addition, findings from the highly anticipated Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2018 survey will be discussed during a general session that spotlights the most favorable markets for investment and development next year. (Last year, Austin, Texas ranked first; Los Angeles took fifth place.)

USA: Commercial UAV Expo 2017
Oct 24 – Oct 26 all-day

Commercial UAV Expo is for a very specific category of UAS users: those using drones for highly technical work in seven vertical industries.

Every day, I speak to professionals integrating or operating UAS for large industrial assets and this is what I’ve found: For them, it’s all about the data, from precise data acquisition, to processing, to deliverables that inform business decisions.

If this rings true for you, there is only one commercial UAS event that will address your questions at the level you need and that’s Commercial UAV Expo.

USA: High Accuracy Mapping with DJI Phantom & Inspire Drones @ The Westgate Resort
Oct 24 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm

This colloquium will teach participants how to do mapping with DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 drones. The lecture will start with an overview of drone mapping and briefly discuss the sweet spots for drone mapping that considers both FAA restrictions as well as the physical capabilities of the Phantom/Inspire drones.   Camera calibration techniques will be presented along with the contribution that calibration makes to overall project accuracy.  The audience will be introduced to new hardware devices and collection techniques that can be used to achieve the centimeters-level positioning necessary to do topographic mapping and differential volumetrics.  The complete data processing workflow from point cloud generation through product creation using elements of GeoCue’s Bring Your Own Drone (BYOD) Mapping Kit will be presented.

Following this colloquium, participants will have a complete understanding of the capabilities of Phantom/Inspire-class drones and the techniques that can be used with these devices to do serious mapping projects.A registration fee of $125 will be required to attend. Lunch will be provided.

USA: Texas #AE Industry Conference 2017 @ JW Marriott
Oct 25 – Oct 26 all-day
If you’re a Texas AE or environmental consulting firm leader—or if your firm wants to grow in the Texas market— then this event is for you.  

Texas is the hottest state market for Architectural, Engineering, and Environmental consulting firms. The Lone Star state is an economic powerhouse with the most business-friendly regulatory environment in the US. Unparalleled population growth will create even greater demand for design, engineering and environmental services. And with four of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing cities and some of the greatest design and engineering schools it is THE state to hire and retain those elusive millennials.

But changes are afoot. Leadership in many Texas firms is aging and succession planning is a huge challenge. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) and alternative delivery models are transforming how owners are purchasing AE and environmental services. Technology advances are changing how work gets done. The competitive environment is evolving daily. In 2017, Texas will see more mergers of AE and environmental firms than any other state.
