The FIDIC Americas Contract Users’ Conference is the first major conference to bring North American engineers, contractors, arbitrators, mediators and construction law experts, comprehensive information on this widely used form of contract, which is increasingly preferred by engineers and contract administrators all over the world.
This pioneering FIDIC event is the only one officially endorsed by the FIDIC Association, who will be deploying some of their key contract drafters to brief North American delegates on the benefits the FIDIC Suite of contracts can bring to major works projects.
If you have attended a FIDIC conference in the past you will already know that this is the only mandatory forum for those looking to make the most efficient utilisation of the FIDIC suite of contracts and gain strategic insights into how best to resolve disputes.
We have assembled an international speaker line-up to provide you with cutting-edge advice on how to successfully use FIDIC contracts or to sucessfully adopt FIDIC for one of your projects if you are not yet an active user.
