2021 WEDA Dredging Summit & Expo going virtual

Western Dredging Association (WEDA) Board met last week and unanimously voted to go virtual with the 2021 Dredging Summit & Expo and postpone the in-person Tampa conference.

“We are confident that going virtual this June is the only sensible path going forward to ensure the health and safety of all of our members and affiliates,” said WEDA in the release.

The 2021 Virtual Dredging Summit will consist of a series of technical and award presentations on June 15, 16, and 17th from 1 to 5 EST.

One of the primary goals and objectives is to recognize individuals and organizations for outstanding engineering and operational achievements in dredging science and technology.

In 2021 WEDA will be accepting nominations and presenting awards for:

  • Best Paper Awards
  • Environmental Excellence Awards
  • Safety Excellence Awards
  • Young WEDA Award – new in 2021

Additional information about the event will be available soon.
