FIDIC Official International Contract Users' Conference and Awards 

The Official FIDIC International Contract Users’ Conference and Awards returns as an in-person event in November 2022 with a must-attend conference at the Tower Hotel on the banks of the River Thames in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant and diverse cities.

The conference will offer delegates an indispensable update on FIDIC’s contract suite as well as discussing the latest developments in the contracts arena, highlighting key and emerging issues and giving attendees the opportunity to meet and network with key global stakeholders from across the FIDIC contracts ecosystem.

By attending the conference, delegates will get the lowdown on the latest state of play with FIDIC contracts that are being planned or under development and they will also hear from leading contractual and legal experts on current and emerging issues in the fast-changing world of global construction contracts. 

A certificate of attendance will be provided to each conference participant which may be used for CPD verification in your local region.

FIDIC’s 2022 webinar series

FIDIC has unveiled its 2022 webinar series, which include a series of must-attend events covering a wide range of topics of interest to global consulting engineering and construction professionals. The 2022 programme builds on the success of FIDIC’s previous webinar series in 2020 and 2021, which saw thousands of industry professionals from around the world attending its live webinar events. 

The webinars in the 2022 programme have been organised in conjunction with FIDIC’s standing committees, councils or panels of experts, while others are launch events for FIDIC’s State of the World report series. The 2022 webinar series is a mainstay of FIDIC’s stakeholder outreach and engagement activity. All events are free to register, and attendees benefit from top-level knowledgeable panellists speaking on some of the key issues facing the industry today. 

Official FIDIC Contract Users’ Regional Conferences

The Official FIDIC Contract Users’ Regional Conferences are being staged online and delivered in-house by FIDIC in May 2022. These events, targeting the global contract users’ community in each region, offer a unique opportunity to share progress on the application and use of FIDIC contracts internationally and across different regions and will include participation from MDBs, private sector organisations and clients, government, engineers, contractors, investors, consultants and other stakeholders who have an interest in FIDIC contracts.

  • Hear directly and engage with the FIDIC Contracts Committee about the latest updates 

  • Reinforce thought leadership in the infrastructure and construction industry 

  • Gain access to the latest regional practice advice on leading major projects and resolving disputes. 

  • Compare experiences with other contract users on the most common challenges facing the industry 

  • Engage and network with fellow colleagues and FIDIC experts

During the event, attendees will be able to join a series of discussion tables led by FIDIC experts. The two-day conference for each region (three regions) is a must-attend event for all those working with FIDIC contracts in the world and bookings are open now.

Our Official FIDIC Contract User’s Conferences are an excellent forum for stakeholders to engage with FIDIC and FIDIC experts, but also a place where delegates are encouraged to engage with each other. FIDIC contract users are vital stakeholders for FIDIC, so helping them build strong relationships with each other strengthens the network that supports FIDIC.
