The official charity for the Symposium is Bridges to Prosperity, who build, and facilitate the building, of pedestrian bridges in remote rural communities, making connections to create opportunity for millions of people for whom isolation is a root cause of their poverty. They will have a stand at the exhibition so go and find them to learn more about the amazing life-changing work they do.

Welcome to IABSE Symposium, Manchester 2024.

The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) was founded in 1929 and will be celebrating 95 years when we come together in Manchester for this exciting event. With its seat in Zurich, IABSE exists to promote the exchange of knowledge and advance the practice of structural engineering worldwide in the service of the profession and society.

Our members deal with all aspects of structural engineering – all types of structure, all construction materials and all aspects in the life of structures, from the early planning and design stages through to operation, maintenance and final decommissioning, demolition or re-purposing. Coming together in Manchester, with its unique industrial heritage and rich history of recent regeneration, reconstruction and economic growth, we anticipate a lively and informed debate on the key issues affecting the construction industry today. Responding to the climate emergency to address the radical changes necessary in the way society plans for our future is the most pressing issue of our time. The construction industry has a major role to play in finding the solutions to this urgent challenge, and as a result it is expected that a large number of international delegates drawn not only from IABSE’s members but also more widely, will converge on Manchester in April 2024.

In addition to organizing conferences and technical meetings, IABSE also encourages and conducts continuing education programmes, and publishes highly respected reports, communications and periodicals with a wide circulation. It also identifies research and development needs, initiating and supporting research activities, and confers awards for outstanding structural engineering achievements.

This Symposium in Manchester promises to be a very successful event, following on the heels of previous highly successful IABSE conferences in the UK in London in 2011 and in Bath in 2017. I am looking forward to it with great anticipation, and hopefully to meeting you there.

Dr. Tina Vejrum,
President of IABSE
