Jeff Gardner and Hallie Graves attended the International Partnering Forum (IPF) 2021 offshore wind conference held in Richmond VA at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. The event is hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind and is one of the largest conferences for the industry. This was the first one back in-person, so it was exciting to see everyone, despite trying to wear masks and social distance. It was better than remote! Always worthwhile having time to chat with fellow industry movers and shakers, both long time collaborators as well as new faces. Looking forward to the next one!
