2020 Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium

It has been decided that the 2020 Movable Bridge Symposium scheduled for October 12 – 15 will be cancelled. We are yet exploring options of having a Virtual Symposium. Continue to check this website for details of what this will entail.

Our current plan is to resume with an in-person Symposium in 2022 in Orlando, FL.
