As the Platinum sponsor, WSP will participate in the PORTS® '19: “Connect. Innovate. Transform” Conference from September 15-18 in Pittsburgh, PA, USA at booth 402. Held on a triennial basis, this renowned conference has consistently drawn an international audience of port, harbor, waterway and marine professionals who come to share their knowledge and learn from the experiences of others.
Visitors to our booth will be able to engage with WSP staff for timely discussions regarding their presentations and how WSP can help address their specific challenges. During the conference, our technical presentations will illustrate ways WSP can help maritime clients become Future Ready.
