FMO Manager at Dredging Today Conference

Mr Louis Strydom, Business development Manager at FMO (Dutch Development Bank), has confirmed his participation as a speaker at our first Dredging Today Conference (DTC).

Focusing on taking early stage projects from concept to bankability, Mr Strydom has worked for various consulting and financial institutions across multiple sectors including agriculture, energy, freight and logistics, housing, ICT, infrastructure, mining, property development, transport, and water. He has raised and banked venture capital, private equity, and project- and corporate finance projects. He holds an M.Com (Economics) and an MBA.

During his presentation, he will discuss climate adaptation as a reality which has an increasingly dramatic impact on cities. The marine and dredging industry provides core skills and infrastructure to help manage this.

Strydom will address financial strategies to best position marine and dredging services and infrastructure within city development, adaptation and finance needs. He will cover public and private approaches to climate adaptive dredging requirements and provides concrete financial strategies for the effective positioning of dredging in the land and property development value chain.

The first ever Dredging Today Conference will take place on October, 9-10th 2017 at Amsterdam RAI Convention Center, under the theme ‘Changing Climate, Resilient Business’.

The conference – supported by the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) – is distinctive in its choice of speakers from around the globe, its room for dialogue and its attention for business rather than technology.

Topics to be covered during DTC include the impact of climate change on the dredging industry, available funds for climate adaptation solutions, changing client demands and future proofing business strategies.

Dredging Today Conference: Changing Climate, Resilient Business

The world in which the dredging industry operates, is changing. Climate change, global trade developments and shifts in the world’s energy mix have significant impact on dredging. But where will the effects of climate change be felt most? And what public funds are available to pay for solutions that can protect vulnerable regions? We are also witnessing changes in client demands and with these in the role of dredging contractors. What business strategies do we see emerging and ultimately – what makes the dredging industry future proof?


Delegates attending the 1st Dredging Today Conference can expect a forward-looking agenda with attention for business rather than technology.
