WDS returns to Europe for 2022
By Steve Ducker08 November 2021
The 2022 World Demolition Summit (WDS) will take place in Vienna, Austria, on 16 and 17 November.
The 14th edition of the industry’s annual gathering returns to Europe for the first time in four years. It also means Vienna will get to host the WDS after all, having seen the 2020 event move online because of Covid-19.
Next year’s event has already secured once again the headline sponsorship of leading manufacturer Volvo Construction Equipment.
“The World Demolition Summit is a first-class event put on by KHL that embraces bringing companies and suppliers together to share best practices and making the industry more professional and a safer place to work,” said Tony den Hoed, Volvo CE director of key accounts for demolition.
“We look forward to continuing our headline sponsorship and focus on demolition well into the future. We hope to see everyone next year in Vienna.”
Organised by Demolition & Recycling International in co-operation with the European Demolition Association (EDA) and with the support of the US National Demolition Association (NDA), it will follow the traditional format of a welcome drinks reception to be followed by a conference the next day and awards dinner on the Thursday evening.
The venue for the WDS is Vienna’s Hotel Savoyen.
