Western Bridge Engineers 2017
 

We are extending you a special invitation to display your products and services at the 2017 Western Bridge Engineers’ Seminar, September 6-8, 2017 at the Portland Marriott Waterfront in Portland, Oregon.

The Western Bridge Engineers’ Seminar is a biennial cooperative effort by the Federal Highway Administration and the Transportation departments of Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. The purpose is to facilitate the exchange of information between government agencies, consultants, contractors, educators, and suppliers on subjects of current interest to the design, construction, and maintenance of bridges. More than 700 participants from the Western states and other regions of the United States and Canada are expected to attend.

As in the past, the principal source of coffee and refreshments during session breaks and prior to the first meeting will be in the exhibit room. In this way, all seminar participants will be encouraged to spend time in the exhibit area. In addition to exhibiting at the seminar, we also invite you to become a sponsor.
