We hope you enjoyed the Bridges special 30th anniversary event from 9-10 March 2022 which attracted 400+ bridge professionals from across the public and private sectors.


The event will be back from 8-9 March 2023 at the Coventry Building Society (CBS) Arena. The first day (8 March) will feature the 31st Bridges Conference and Exhibition, followed by the 3rd Bridges Awards ceremony. And on the second day (9 March), the increasingly popular Workshops and Tabletop Displays will return.


You can find the Bridges 2022 conference and workshop programme here - featuring fascinating case studies, cutting-edge technologies and the latest developments in bridge construction, inspection, maintenance and structural health monitoring. There was something for everyone from vital topics such as Net Zero and 'wow' presentations on record-breaking feats of engineering.

2023 delegate registration will be live in October 2022 and the 2023 preliminary programme will be posted towards the end of 2022.
