Welcome, Vendors, to the 1st Annual ASCE Idaho Civil Engineering Conference! This two day conference is the largest event held by the Southern Idaho Section (SIS) of ASCE. The conference will feature technical sessions for engineers, a huge tradeshow area, and the annual Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet. Civil Engineers from all disciplines, public and private sector, and students and faculty from Southern and Eastern Idaho will be in attendance so you don't want to miss it.

The conference will take place March 19th - 20th, 2019 at the Boise State University Student Union Building. The conference will be all day on Tuesday and half of the day on Wednesday. The annual SIS Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet will take place on Tuesday night. The theme for this year's banquet is Casino Night. Happy hour will take place before the banquet and consist of fun casino games including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and more!

Unlike other conferences, we put the Vendors at center stage. The conference is designed to maximize the amount of time attendees spend in the tradeshow. All meals (sans banquet) will be served in the tradeshow area along with morning and afternoon snacks and refreshments. Additionally, the tradeshow will also host the Casino Night happy hour event, where Vendors and attendees will sit shoulder to shoulder and enjoy several casino style games and beverages. To increase tradeshow foot traffic even more, there will be a Vendor sponsored raffle held during every break so make sure to bring lots of Vendor swag to give away. Vendor registration Includes:

  • 1 - 10’x10’ Vendor space at the tradeshow, table and tablecloth included
  • 2 - meal tickets for breakfast each day and lunch
  • 2 - tickets for the Casino Night happy hour event
  • 2 - tickets for the Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet

Be sure to take advantage of the Vendor sponsorship opportunities when you register. Vendors can increase their exposure at the conference by sponsoring several conference events, including breakfast each morning, lunch, morning and afternoon snacks and refreshments, the Casino Night happy hour event, and the Outstanding Civil Engineering Awards Banquet. Sponsorship will include your company logo prominently displayed at the event in a location that everyone will see such as at the entrance to the event and at key locations throughout, an announcement during the sponsored event, and your company logo printed in the conference program adjacent to the sponsored event.

Interested in presenting at the conference? Do you have a new or interesting civil engineering technology that you think Civil Engineers need to know about? Did you recently work on an interesting Civil Engineering project that showcases your products or services? It's not too late to get on the schedule. Submit a 1-2 paragraph abstract of your presentation along with a 1 paragraph speaker bio to Grae Harper at gharper@spfwater.cmom after you register. Your submission will be reviewed by the SIS board and if accepted, you will earn your spot in the conference program. Registration for the conference is not required for consideration as a presenter at the conference.

Be sure to register by January 15th for early registration pricing!
