The Okura Hotel in Amsterdam on 5th November, 2010, will once again be the venue for the 2010 annual World Demolition Summit, incorporating the World Demolition Awards, which was launched in 2009 to general industry acclaim.

Once again, the event will feature a top-class one day technical conference that will feature leading industry speakers who will address topics of major concern to the modern demolition industry, as well as a number of detailed reports covering some of the most challenging demolition projects undertaken around the world in recent months.
