First-of-its-kind event for Saskatchewan: Save the date for Nov. 29–30 in Regina

The SHCA 2023 Infrastructure Summit is a two-day conference, taking place Nov. 29–30, 2023, at the Delta Hotel & Convention Center in Regina, held in partnership by the Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association (SHCA), the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Saskatchewan. 

This year’s inaugural event celebrates the significant socio-economic return of transportation investments by the Province of Saskatchewan.

The conference and tradeshow will provide excellent networking opportunities, bringing together leaders and innovators from policymakers, owners, builders and engineers to explore the emerging technologies and partnerships that will enable clean, efficient and accessible transportation systems. The conference will explore advancements in transportation efficiency, accessibility, safety, environment and community across the transportation infrastructure that connects Saskatchewanians and grows Saskatchewan’s economy. 

Highlights of the event include presentations from Pamela Barnum and Mark Nesbitt.
