    Angus Holdsworth, managing director, Andun Consultants, UK.
  • Demolition of Morandi Bridge in Genoa, Italy
    Speaker from Fagioli SpA to be confirmed
Covid-19 is preventing us from meeting in person this year, but that will not stop the Summit from being the demolition and recycling industry’s premier event for education, celebrating excellence and networking.
