Join us for this year’s World Demolition Summit (WDS), which will be held as a virtual event on 12 November because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Summit is free to attend and registration is now open.
The event, starting at 15:00 (UK time) on the 12th, will comprise four presentations highlighting world-class demolition projects from around the world, together with a virtual awards ceremony, with winners announced in the 13 categories.
Speakers and topics already confirmed include:

  • Demolition of Churchill Way flyover in Liverpool, UK
    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.
