Event Overview:

The 2014 IBC was the biggest IBC presented by ESWP to date, with more than 90 technical papers, 8 workshops, 2 continuing education seminars and an exhibit hall with more than 130 displays and a 2,500 square foot AASHTO display which anchored the exhibit hall. In addition to these formal learning opportunities, the IBC held a mobile workshop with visits to local area bridge projects.

The International Bridge Conference® (IBC) is the pre-eminent arena for the bridge industry in North America, Europe and Asia. Presented by the Engineers’ Society of Western Pennsylvania, the IBC annually attracts over 1,500 bridge owners and engineers, senior policy makers, government officials, bridge designers, construction executives, and suppliers from throughout the United States and abroad. Now in it’s 32nd year as an annual conference, the 2014 participants came from 48 states and 17 countries. The IBC is planned by an all-volunteer group and provides continuing education and networking opportunities to members of all facets of the bridge industry.

Events include:

Exhibit Hall - the IBC exhibit hall which is open throughout the Conference. Over 125 exhibitors representing consulting firms, software, design & construction and featuring interactive, heavy equipment displays and demonstrations.

Technical Sessions have always been the heart of the IBC, where attendees can watch, listen and learn about the various topics scheduled for presentation. Conference attendees may choose from presentations in four concurrent technical sessions, as new presentations are scheduled every 30 minutes. Pre-selection of presentations is not required.

Workshops, or Special Interest Sessions are focused sessions on specific topics and are presented by co-sponsors, partners and other leading industry groups. Pre-selection of presentations is not required.

Seminars - 4, 8 or 16 hour intensive courses scheduled during the Conference provide registrants with in-depth focused continuing education on a variety of topics. Separate registration is required, and a certificate of completion is awarded to each registrant.

Many Committee Meetings of industry groups are planned during the dates of the IBC to allow industry professionals to efficiently combine important committee functions with their trip to the IBC.

The Bridge Awards Dinner recognizes the recipients of all IBC Awards and Medals. A full list of past winners, as well as the current recipients can be found here.
