The Sharp Reflections GATHERing is our premier annual event for clients and partners. This year’s symposium will be held in Bad Dürkheim. As usual, we’re planning an exciting two days to help you learn best practices, build software skills, and share case studies that show how pre-stack seismic workflows add business value.

The GATHERing is a great place to exchange ideas and insights with industry peers
