Simon Hebert, civils work manager of Canada-based Delsan-AIM Environmental Services, is the latest conference speaker confirmed for this year’s World Demolition Summit (WDS).

The WDS is organised by Demolition & Recycling International in co-operation with the National Demolition Association of the USA and with the support of the European Demolition Association.
The headline sponsor is Volvo Construction Equipment.
As well as the conference, the summit also includes a networking drinks reception on the evening of October 23 and concludes with the prestigious World Demolition Awards dinner on October 24.
