Conference Description:

The world in which the dredging industry operates, is changing. Climate change, global trade developments and shifts in the world's energy mix are but a few factors with significant impact. But where will the effects of climate change be felt most? And what public funds are available to pay for solutions that can protect vulnerable regions?

We are also witnessing changes in client demands and with these in the role of dredging contractors. What business strategies do we see emerging and ultimately – what makes the dredging industry future proof?

Keynotes session: Which current trends are your best friends?
Our opening session will provide topical and fresh insights on the global picture for dredging, covering the main drivers for dredging:
1) expected developments in world trade,
2) urban development near coastlines,
3) coastal protection,
4) offshore energy and
5) tourism and leisure.
During this session attendees are actively engaged in a discussion on global trends, probing which trends are seen as the audience’s best friends for business opportunities in dredging.

Thematical session: Climate change and its impact on dredging.

Thematical session: Solutions and funding for climate change adaptation.

Closing session: How are you making your business resilient?
