You still get all of the great M&A education (trend information, up-to-date deal pricing data, lively best practice panel discussions) AND the #1 West Coast and Western States networking forum for AE & environmental industry executives, buyers, sellers, and investors.

You’ll learn about the trends that are converging to reshape the AE industry, hear from industry-leading firms on how they are approaching strategy and strategic planning, and engage with AE and environmental firm leaders whose firms are trailblazing innovators.

Over two information-packed days, leaders from AE firms across the country will come together to discuss how to advance their firms and drive growth. The Western States M&A, Strategy and Innovation Symposium is the only opportunity like this on the West Coast to sharpen your skills, grow your network, and inform the strategies that will propel your firm into the future.
