National Student Steel Bridge Competition
Conferences and Workshops partnered with the College of Civil Engineering to host their 25th competition. 45 schools from the United States (Including Puerto Rico), Canada, Mexico and China came to Provo to compete. Bridges needed to pass four different phases of the competition. The teams assembled their bridges for display on Cougar Field. Each bridge was judged on appearance and design. After the design competition, a welcome reception was held at the Clyde Building. Saturday’s competition was held at the Utah Valley Convention Center. Following the competition, a banquet was held at the Convention center where École de technologie supérieure, from Canada, won the overall prize.
This annual event brings together multiple disciplines such as computer scientists, engineers, and researchers from biotechnology, bioinformatics, and the medical research community to showcase state-of-the-art research and development and to promote future interdisciplinary activity and research in these areas. This international symposium attracts contributions from all over the United States and foreign countries such as Japan, China, Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong.

We have several alumni who use our services for their professional conferences. The following are some examples.
Academy of LDS Dentists
Three programs run concurrently—for clinicians, spouses, and youth. 2016 was their largest conference ever—they’ve outgrown the space available in 2258/2260 of the BYU Conference Center for their clinician program; we desperately need to move the Spouse Program to the Bean Museum in 2017. The 2017 conference is their 40th year and they anticipate record crowds! They appreciate and value their four decade relationship with BYU as host of the conference.
