The IRG45 meeting of the International Research Group on Wood Protection will be held on May 11-15, 2014 at the Dixie Convention Center in St. George, Utah in the United States of America.

Previous IRG meetings have been held in the U.S. in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1980, in Orlando, Florida in 1993, in Kona, Hawaii in 2000, and at Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming in 2007. So the upcoming IRG45 meeting is the next in an apparent developed tradition of holding the IRG Annual Meeting in the United States every seven years.

This location was chosen as providing the following advantages: one of the most spectacular scenic vistas in the U.S., proximity to several of the most beautiful and interesting National Parks in the U.S., easy access via Las Vegas International Airport or Salt Lake Airport, as well as directly into St George.

Opportunity for entertainment activities in Las Vegas prior to or after the IRG45 meeting, a very affordable location for attendees, opportunity for many different sports activities, including hiking, sightseeing, mountain biking, horse-riding, golf, climbing, or just gentle walking and soaking in the amazing vistas.
