UESI Pipelines 2021 Conference Update

Dear potential conference registrants,

Due to the continued fluid consequences of COVID-19 all around the world and based on feedback from members, and former and potential attendees, the Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) along with the Pipelines 2021 Conference Steering Committee have reached the difficult decision to cancel the in-person program scheduled for August 3–6, 2021, Calgary, Canada.

Like last year, we shall collectively work together with our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and suppliers to transform the UESI Pipelines 2021 into a virtual delivery. We embrace this opportunity to provide you with an experience that will allow you to continue to be engaged and stay connected with your peers via a different platform accessible from the comfort of your home office!

Further information regarding the mechanics of the digital event pertaining to the technical content, networking opportunities and sponsorship will be provided to you in the upcoming weeks. Instructions and guidelines for our speakers, moderators, and track chairs will be shared as we moved along in the planning process.

We are counting on your participation in the virtual program!

We thank you in advance for your support and if you have any questions, please email UESI
