Sustainable Dredging - Continued Benefits

CEDA Dredging Days is by far the most productive event for dredging professionals who want to update on the latest industry developments. With its high quality technical programme, exhibition and networking, it's widely recognised as the best use of 2 days out of the office.

A wealth of knowledge and excellent networking

Delegates at CEDA Dredging Days 2017 will hear from experienced speakers who have taken a novel approach to dredging projects while adding value to nature, economy and society, in marine and freshwater environments. Highlights of the technical programme include:

  • Keynote address by Frank Verhoeven, President of IADC - the International Association of Dredging Companies
  • 19 peer-reviewed papers presented by international experts on: Environment and monitoring; Developments in instrumentation; Sustainable working methods and equipment; and Innovative solutions and an Academic Session showcasing research papers on various subjects (a special feature of the session is that speakers do not have to adhere to the general conference theme.)
  • An Interactive Session, on contractual problems and how to avoid them, designed to bring useful lessons to all parties in a contract (including the project owner, contractor, supplier, and engineer/designer) (see DPC May issue) 
  • Presentation of CEDA’s Checklist for Successful Dredging Management by the new Dredging Management Commission
  • Young CEDA Pitch Talks with a series of up to 8 short, sharp presentations by bright young professionals
