The 2023 Terminal Operating Practices Symposium (TOPS) will be held on December 5 in Houston, TX at the Marriott Marquis Houston.

Presentations are provided by terminal operator employees, who will share their experiences in addressing natural disasters, environmental releases, malfunctions, worker injuries and illnesses, near misses/hits, and other abnormal operating events at their facilities.
