Technical Sessions

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 any of the concurrent technical sessions, as new presentations are scheduled every 30 minutes.

Virtual Bridge Tours

It’s the next best thing to being there! Since we can’t go to the bridge, we will bring the bridge/s to YOU! This year, we are presenting not one, but four virtual tours of outstanding bridge projects!  Each day during during “Bridge Week” (exc. Friday) we are presenting a virtual tour for you to visit and learn about these projects. Each tour lasts approx. 30 minutes!
