GEOVET 2019 will be held on the University of California, Davis campus, at the Conference Center.

UC Davis is the home of the Aggies — go-getters, change makers and problem solvers who make their mark at one of the top public universities in the United States. Since we first opened in 1908, we’ve been known for standout academics, sustainability and Aggie Pride as well as valuing the Northern California lifestyle. These themes are woven into our 100-plus-year history and our reputation for solving problems related to food, health, the environment and society. Our 5,300-acre campus is in the city of Davis, a vibrant college town of about 68,000 located in Yolo County. The state capital is 20 minutes away, and world-class destinations such as the San Francisco Bay Area, Lake Tahoe and the Napa Valley are within a two-hour drive.

UC Davis Conference Center

The UC Davis Conference Center is located on the South East UC Davis campus (550 Alumni Lane, Davis, CA, 95616), 3 minute walking distance of Hyatt hotel (which has space for up to 100 guests) and 10 minutes walking distance to Downtown Davis where there are many other hotels and lots of restaurants and stores. All these hotels have agreements with UC Davis to offer special (cheaper) room rates for delegates attending UC Davis events. From the nearby hotels, walking and biking will be the best way to get to the venue as UC Davis. There is a parking lot also next to the Conference Center for those arriving by car (visitor parking is $9 per day), although we will encourage participants to walk and bike given the short distances and the enjoyable path to the conference venue through the arboretum. We will arrange guides to pick up participants and walk them to the venue. Some of the hotels in Davis offer the possibility to rent for free a bike to get to central campus. Mobility electric cars will be arranged and made also available for those with special mobility needs (in this case please contact us at
