Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference: Meet the Speakers

The CEDA-IADC Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference celebrates the launch of the publication of the same title.

The two-day-long program (19 and 20 November), taking place in the heart of Amsterdam at the Beurs van Berlag, will gather professionals from all sectors involved in the realization of a dredging project.

All participants will receive a copy of this guidebook to deliver dredging projects that create additional value for nature and society beyond fulfilling their primary functional requirements.

A thoughtfully designed program awaits delegates of the CEDA-IADC Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference. Presentations and highly interactive technical sessions will encourage participants to engage with each other, enhancing knowledge exchange and transfer.

The CEDA-IADC Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference will confer quintessential knowledge for planners, designers, decision makers, regulators, contractors, project owners and environmental advocates.
