CEDA Dredging Days 2021, the flagship conference of the Central Dredging Association (CEDA), will take place next Fall, according to the news release.

“We have listened carefully to feedback gathered from our members and other stakeholders in the world of dredging,” said CEDA. “We are now ready and proud to announce that the Dredging Days will be back in September 2021.”

CEDA also added that they are planning to start Monday evening, 27 September and end the programme on Wednesday afternoon. “Depending on the availability of key speakers and venue, we may move the event with one week, to 4-6 October 2021.”

As reported, the preliminary programme features a unique mix of what was good of the past and what is needed for the future.
