2022 Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium

2022 HMS Symposium (Oct 17 - 20)








 The 19th Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium will occur in-person, October 17-20, 2022. We will be returning to the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. Please make plans to join us.

Vendor exhibit spaces will present the latest technological developments in goods and services in the design, construction and maintenance of Heavy Movable Bridges and Structures.  Over 40 technical presentations specific to the Heavy Movable Structures industry will also be available to those in attendance.  

Online registration is closed. Walk-up registrations will be available at the hotel.

As we all experienced unprecedented disruptions during 2020, HMS was forced to cancel the 2020 Biennial Movable Bridge Symposium. While it was certainly not a replacement for our in-person event, we did offer a Virtual Symposium which allowed members to view presentations and receive PDH credits. These presentations are still available to HMS Members.
