We are very excited to announce the ASCE Florida Section 2023 Annual Conference, taking place on July 13 and 14 at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando. The event will begin Wednesday evening at the welcome reception, and resume on Thursday with exhibits, a technical tour (TBA), technical sessions and a scholarship presentation reception. Friday will be a full day of technical sessions, exhibitor hall access, networking opportunities, and will feature the Annual Award and Officer Installation Luncheon.
We hope you plan to join us, and we look forward to welcoming you to Orlando.
The Florida Section Annual Conference brings 80+ technical and professional development sessions in 7 tracks of engineering: structural, geotechnical, environmental & water resources, transportation, utilities, sustainability and professional development. The conference offers something for everyone, including our growing number of student members. We offer ½ day geared towards them, including a thinking outside the box leadership seminar geared towards our millennial members. The technical sessions will be in 25-minute and 50-minute blocks. In addition, the state required two-hour Laws/Rules & Ethics course will be offered.
Networking is the key to professional development and career opportunities. The Annual Conference is the perfect opportunity to meet with members you haven’t seen in a while, in addition to meeting potential clients or employers. Conference networking takes place during the morning and afternoon refreshment breaks located in the exhibitor area and at the cocktail parties.
Many products and services needed for your next solution can be found in the exhibitor area of the annual conference. Exhibitors are open on Thursday from 10am to 5:00pm and Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. They make themselves available to share with you their newest product to help your engineering needs.
The 2023 Annual Conference will take place at the beautiful JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando. The hotel has the many luxuries you’ve come to expect at a Florida Section conference – pool, spa, excellent dining and easy access to the Orlando theme parks.
