TRANSMISSION AND SUBSTATION DESIGN AND OPERATION SYMPOSIUM
Conference Mission: To promote the exchange of ideas and experience for the benefit of those people concerned with transmission and substation design and development.
Thank you for helping make the 50th Annual Transmission and Substation Design and Operation Symposium a huge success. The participation and support of all the attendees, vendors, sponsors, speakers and advisory board members is key to the continued success of this important industry event.
As we transition into the next 50 years, you will see that we have made some modifications to the brand, including a new website. We're hoping this renovation extends throughout the conference into fresh content ideas, creative sponsorship concepts and innovative vendor participation.
