How the Symposium Became the Premier Specialized Transport Event of the Year
-SC&RA members are no doubt gearing up for this year’s Specialized Transportation Symposium
, February 28–March 2, Orlando, which will yet again deliver unmatched value to SC&RA members in 2023 by bringing together the industry’s foremost specialized transportation professionals and government permitting officials to discuss permitting harmonization, safety, regulations, compliance and some of the most pressing topics in specialized transportation today.
True to form, this year’s STS audience will have access to eight education sessions, more than 20 speakers, a dozen networking events and an exhibit center boasting 55 booths. Also, among those attendees, and unique to this event, will be state and regional officials from MAASTO (Mid America Association of State Transportation Officials), NASTO (Northeast Association of State Transportation Officials), SASHTO (Southern Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) and WASHTO (Western Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials), as well as SC&RA’s Pilot Car Task Force and Permit Policy Committee. Given that lineup, it’s easy to look at the current Symposium and acknowledge both its relevance and impact on members and the industry alike, but the event wasn’t always the comprehensive offering that it is today. And as part of SC&RA’s 75th Anniversary coverage, SC&RA is looking back on the Symposium for a glimpse into the foresight and perseverance required by past SC&RA members and leaders – in order to build what has become a must-attend opportunity for transportation professionals on every level throughout the industry.
