Get ready for WODCON XXIII: Dredging is changing


The times, ‘they are a changing’ and dredging is no different in moving with the times. Dredging, as an industry, is evolving to ensure it remains sustainable whilst adding value to society, the environment and the economy. With that in mind, the focus for the next World Dredging Congress (WODCON XXIII) will be on exactly how ‘Dredging is Changing’ itself and the world around it.

WODCON: designed by dredging professionals for our industry

WODCON is the prestigious international dredging event and is widely recognised as the only worldwide dredging event designed, by a committee of dedicated dredging professionals, specifically for our industry.

Organised under the banner of the World Organization of Dredging Associations (WODA), WODCON is held once every three years, and is very well attended. The three main member associations – CEDA, WEDA, and EADA – take it in turns to host and organise the event. WODCON XXIII will be organised by CEDA.
