Programme highlights in a nutshell

Events - Dredging Days 2017 - Audience // cedadredgingdays2017-audience-w.jpg (98 K)The 18 peer-reviewed presentations cover a broad range of subjects – from the latest developments in dredging technology, supported by enlightening case studies, to the newest tools and advanced approaches to sustainable dredging.

Following on the wonderfully positive feedback from previous Dredging Days attendees, the Young CEDA Pitch Talk Session and the Interactive Session are now regular features of the conference programme. This year’s Interactive Session will focus on environmental and social impact management and stakeholder interactions.

Attendees will also get a sneak preview into three soon-to-be published CEDA Working Group papers on energy efficiency, effective contract type selection and soil investigation.

The conference will kick off with a panel discussion on energy transition, where captains of industry will share their views on this hot topic.


Events - Dredging Days 2017 - Exhibition // cdd17-3.jpg (110 K)Also, our exhibitors can expect increased visibility this year. Amongst other things, there will be the opportunity to formally present short pitches. Damen Dredging Equipment, EIVA, IHC, LagersmitNonius and Teledyne, have already booked their spaces and will have their newest products on display this year. It’s not too late to join them. There are three more booths available should you wish to expose your company’s latest thing to keenly interested dredging professionals.


CEDA Dredging Days is the place where the crème-de-la-crème of the international dredging world meet biennially. With around 200 attendees including practitioners, scientists and academic, representing some 75+ companies from more than 20 countries, when it comes to dredging, the CEDA Dredging Days and Exhibition is superb for networking with the best in the EMEA region.

Europort 2019

Dredging Days 2019 coincides with Europort 2019, one of the largest marine tradeshows, where dredging is one of the key topics. This always helps to make it an even more worthwhile journey for those coming from further afield.

Our sponsors

We’re grateful to IHC and  Port of Rotterdam Silver Sponsors and Cable Arm, Damen Dredging EquipmentDEME in2Dredging and NMDC Bronze Sponsors. Without their generous support we wouldn’t be able to offer CEDA Dredging Days to the members and the wider dredging community.

Two efficient days packed with knowledge, information and connections

We appreciate that spending two days away from the office is not easy for a busy professional. However, there are so many new things to learn, so many people to meet, and so much inspiration to get, we know you’ll feel the long-term benefits of participating in CEDA Dredging Days for a long time after the event.
