III International Forum of dredging companies

    Dates:   2016 February 25

    III International Forum of dredging companies 

     

    It is the third time that Media-Group PortNews, Russia’s leading media focused on the maritime industry, holds the International Forum of Dredging Companies. The event is traditionally supported by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation and the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADS) with FSUE Rosmorport as a Partner. The first two Forums held in Moscow in 2014 and 2015 made it a well-known and prestigious discussion platform for the world’s leading dredging companies. The organizers mark a high interest of large foreign companies to the 3rd Forum. Russian stevedoring companies and domestic manufacturers of dredging vessels and other technological equipment also show high interest in the coming event. It is very important today that Russia has managed to establish and annually provide an international platform to discuss the prospects of hi-tech dredging industry development.
