08 June 2022
CIWEM Urban Drainage Group (UDG) is thrilled to be hosting its traditional Spring Conference within the Flood and Coast event at Telford on the 8th June 2022. We are particularly excited as it is our first time at Flood and Coast and our first physical event in nearly 2.5 years.
As ‘an event within an event’ we expect to benefit from additional delegates to join our sessions from Flood and Coast and our delegates and speakers will have access to the complete Flood and Coast experience. As such, this spring, our event draws on the synergies between Flood and Coast and urban drainage themes to bring together professionals from across the urban drainage management and flood risk communities to share best practice, innovation, and particularly collaborative experiences.
Across our three sessions we will have papers on Rainfall, Flooding and Extreme Events, and the Development of BlueGreen Partnership Solutions. Our speakers will draw on their extensive experience, provide a formal presentation and contribute to panel discussions.
Flood & Coast will run from 7 - 9 June 2022 at Telford and will attract exhibitors, speakers and visitors from around the world to advance the debate about the impacts of climate change on flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM).
Spaces are available for the UDG Conference on 8th June followed by the Flood & Coast Excellence Awards Dinner.
There's no separate registration for the UDG Conference. Anyone who has a valid conference pass for Day 2 will have access to the UDG Conference. If you haven't got a ticket yet, book it now!BOOK NOW
