IADC Dredging Seminar in Singapore

Registration is still open for the IADC Dredging Seminar in Singapore, which is taking place from 7-11 November of this year.


According to International Association of Dredging Companies, the five-day seminar strives to provide an understanding of the basics of dredging through lectures and workshops which are given by industry experts in a classroom setting for a hands-on experience.
