Held on August 26, the Symposium is an “all-inclusive” Saturday event with a full day of lectures with good ole’ Texas barbecue for lunch (a repeat from last year since we had so many happy eaters!).

After the lectures, enjoy a relaxing social cocktail hour, dinner banquet, and benefit auction, which provides plenty of time to ask speakers follow-up questions, meet new friends, and catch up with old.

Tickets are available for $200. If you have a +1 who would like to attend the Saturday evening event, social guest tickets are available for $50.

The lectures and lunch will be at the Eisemann Center, right across from the Renaissance Hotel.  Speakers featured are:

John Cornish
Federico Barlocher
Christophe Keilmann
Bruce Bridges
Dr. Peter Lyckberg
Dr. Emanuele Marini
Richard Hughes
Dr. Robert Hazen
George Rossman

They offer special tickets for students and educators to attend the lectures and lunch. Discounted tickets are available for $55, and they'll continue to offer this special student/educator ticket to encourage passion for learning about fine minerals and geology. Please note this does not include gift bags or evening events, but you’re welcome to visit The Arkenstone Gallery for the Sunday morning open house.
