Conference overview

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.
