December 4 - The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) will host its 2015 Specialized Transportation Symposium at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia from March 3-6.

Attendance is expected to surpass that of the 2014 symposium, which attracted 437 specialised carriers, state and federal government officials, researchers, manufacturers and suppliers.

The opening day of the symposium will be devoted to meetings of regional and state highway and transportation officials. These groups will continue their meetings on March 4 until they adjourn to attend the symposium's opening session in the afternoon. Delegates will then be subject to various educational sessions.

The event will also have an exhibit centre, featuring 40 companies that supply products and services to specialised carriers.

Until January 16, early-bird registration fees are available at USD395 for members and USD145 for their spouses; USD625 for non-members and USD225 for their spouses; and USD125 for government employees. Fees include receptions, a buffet lunch, continental breakfasts and refreshment breaks.
