When the Board of CEDA decided to revamp our flagship event, it was clear that Dredging Days 2021 was going to be very different from the norm. Now, in keeping with current international COVID-19 regulations, we are excited to announce that the conference and exhibition will be held as a fully virtual event on 28-29 September 2021.

Same high quality with a broader reach

CEDA Dredging Days 2021 will have the scientifically sound programme and high-quality technical papers that the event is well known for. While we will be missing meeting each other face to face, we fully embrace all the possibilities our chosen virtual venue offers. The technical presentations, panel discussions, live exhibition booths, lots of networking opportunities, including 1:1 video calls and matchmaking will make the event a great interactive experience.

As an added bonus, making the Dredging Days a virtual conference will open it up to the wider dredging community, across the entire CEDA region. It will also be much easier for students and young dredging professionals to participate.

We are looking forward to welcoming new delegates, and exhibitors, from further afield, and there will be more extensive opportunities for networking with dredging professionals from all over the CEDA region and beyond.

Challenging the business of dredging

CEDA Dredging Days 2021 will focus strongly on ‘Sustainable Dredging and Innovation – The science. The practice. The business’. Content will range from new technologies to the way the industry does business, all viewed through the lens of sustainable best practice.

The conference programme will feature academic and practice-oriented presentations, as well as keynotes and high-level panel discussions. In addition to peer-reviewed technical content, the conference programme will include a business exchange session, designed to explore and encourage mutual opportunities.

The Organising cand Technical Papers Committees are pulling out all the stops to make sure that CEDA Dredging Days 2021 will be invaluable to the whole business, while still maintaining the high standards that the industry has come to expect.

More details and registration information will follow in May.

In the meantime, mark these two days in your diary to make sure that you will not miss the event.
