Recently, SurvTech exhibited at the 34th Annual Environmental Permitting Summer School. Hosted by the Florida Environmental Network, Inc, part of the Florida Chamber Foundation, this event is attended by hundreds of professionals involved with environmental regulation in Florida. Each year, they gather in Marco Island to receive instruction by leaders in the environmental industry, explaining the latest in regulatory changes and highlighting new methods of conducting environmental survey in support of permitting compliance. SurvTech always looks forward to attending this event to see old friends and meet new ones alike, as we share our experience and capabilities at our exhibit booth.
With current circumstances surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, the nature of this year’s conference was different from previous years, with many choosing to stay home and attend the conference virtually. As with many events this year, the organizers provided an online attendance option, so that many would be able to obtain the vital industry information they need without venturing into public spaces. For those who attended in-person, the organizers of the event and the hotel staff went to great lengths to ensure that surfaces were sanitized, staff were wearing masks, and that meals were served in individual packages. SurvTech exercised extra caution as well, donning masks, wiping down booth surfaces, and maintaining social distance.
While many conferences and events have been canceled or postponed, we were happy to be able to attend Summer School to see some of our colleagues and represent the company’s presence as a trusted provider of survey services within the environmental industry. Folks stopped by the booth just to say how much they appreciate the job we do and how they look forward to seeing David O’Brien and his staff each year. We intend to continue our great relationship with this community and attend this event whenever possible. We look forward to next year!
