|Hello WEDA colleagues,
I hope this email finds you, your family, and your colleagues safe and healthy as our association continues to navigate and evolve during this ongoing pandemic. Last week, the WEDA Board met and unanimously voted to go virtual with the 2021 Dredging Summit & Expo and postpone the in-person Tampa conference. This decision was based upon several factors of which safety was paramount. 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.
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. Registration information will be distributed out later this month.
You can add Virtual Dredging Summit to your calendar using one of the links below:
We rescheduled the Tampa in-person Expo for June 2024 due to the already rescheduled Houston Expo for 2022, and the JW Marriott’s unavailability to host the expo in 2023. Here are the upcoming Dredging Summit & Expos:

ABSTRACTS & PAPERS
Throughout this pandemic, the dredging industry has remained resilient and has adapted to achieve continued success. We are confident that our association will endure this pandemic and with our member firms’ collaborative efforts emerge even stronger in its wake. We give special thanks to our sustaining member firms for their continued support during these most challenging times and ask other firms to join us in strengthening WEDA. We wish you all the best of health, and we look forward to providing you a highly beneficial virtual meeting in June and webinars throughout the year.
