This year's Dresden Bridge Construction Symposium was again an excellent event that brought together professionals from the bridge construction industry to discuss current developments and challenges. The symposium featured a wide range of presentations by renowned experts. Topics such as innovative design techniques, sustainable materials, digital design tools and effective maintenance strategies were in focus. The symposium continued to provide a platform for companies and organizations to present their innovative products, technologies and research projects in the field of bridge construction and to establish contacts. The informal talks and discussions during the breaks encouraged the exchange of experiences and the formation of new connections. We are already looking forward to the next Dresden Bridge Construction Symposium, where we will again have the opportunity to network with the best in the industry and share in the latest developments. For the German Bridge Construction Award 2023, among others, IGS Ingenieure GmbH & Co. KG was nominated in the category "Foot and Cycle Path Bridges" with the listed refurbishment of the Carl Alexander Bridge near Dornburg.
