Get ready for the WEDA Eastern Chapter

Next week, Western Dredging Association (WEDA) will host their annual Eastern Chapter Meeting in Charleston, SC.

The conference is taking place at the Historic Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston, from Wednesday, October 13, 2021, through Friday, October 15, 2021.

“For the 2021 WEDA Eastern Chapter meeting, we wanted to have a topic-specific event. With this in mind, we felt a relevant topic for this year’s event is Evolution and Future of Deepening Projects,” the Board announced.

They also added that the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston is sold out the week of the 2021 Eastern Chapter Meeting and no additional rooms can be added to the WEDA room block. WEDA has contracted a courtesy room block at the nearby Hampton Inn Historic District.
