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? MONDAY 9 OCTOBER – AFTERNOON Keynotes session: Which current trends are your best friends?
