PIANC USA and the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute of ASCE would like to THANK everyone who attended the conference. The Dredging 2015 conference was a four-day technical specialty conference which brought together 325+ professionals and practitioners from all parts of the world to discuss a broad spectrum of topics related to dredging. The theme for Dredging 2015, Moving and Managing Sediments, included presentations on all types of dredging projects from navigation channel deepening and maintenance to environmental restoration to the development of new ports and marinas. The Opening Plenary Keynote Speaker was Mr. John Tavolaro, USACE, ret., who spoke on "Dredging: Past Accomplishments and Future Challenges," and the closing Plenary Session Luncheon featured a Panel discussion on "P3 for the Nation's Inland Marine Transportation System - Focus on Dredging."

Our location along the river in Savannah, Georgia, was perfect - everyone enjoyed great views of the massive passing vessels. Attendees were also able to experience the history, charm and southern hospitality of that beloved coastal city.
