IADC to hold conference every three years

The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) is interested in hosting a conference every three years following the success of its previous conference, “From Birth to Boom: Asian Maritime Megastructures” that was held for its 50th Anniversary celebration last October.

René Kolman, secretary general of IADC says that he has proposed to IADC’s Board to organise such a conference every three years. He adds the Board will consider these conferences depending on the location and topics.

“From Birth to Boom: Asian Maritime Megastructures” was held at the Island Shangri-La Hotel in Hong Kong on October 23, 2015. The event featured notable speakers including keynoter, Robert D. Kaplan, author and thought leader on foreign affairs, who spoke on “The Maritime Future of Geopolitics”. Around 130 top-level executives from a range of industries from across the globe attended the event.
