2022 Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium

As we all experienced unprecedented disruptions during 2020, HMS was forced to cancel the 2020 Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium. While it is certainly not a replacement for our in-person event, we are offering a Virtual Symposium which will allow members to view presentations and receive PDH credits.

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

Biennial Symposium
Over 525 attendees gathered in 2018 for information exchange provided by HMS at the biennial symposium in Orlano, FL.

HMS Technical Paper Presentations cover six disciplines of our industry

  • Electrical/Electronic Systems
  • Ownership/Public Use/Management
  • Performance/Construction/Maintenance
  • Fluid Power Systems
  • Machinery/Mechanisms
  • Structural Elements

50 Vendor display spaces presented the latest technological developments in goods and services in the design, construction and maintenance of Heavy Movable Bridges and Structures. see the list of our Exhibitors under the Sponsors tab.



Symposium Program and Papers will be uploaded to the website for member access.
