The dredging community has proven its ability to adapt to a changing world. Rather than simply following new rules and regulations, the industry is leading, innovative and open to co-operation. To reflect the dredging community spirit even more, CEDA has decided to revamp their Dredging Days programme for the 2024 edition, where they will engage with the theme “Dredging in a changing world, leading science and business in the dredging industry”. This revamped edition will take place from 27-29 May 2024 at the Postillion Hotel & Convention Centre WTC Rotterdam, the Netherlands; a modern, central and invigorating location.
