There are some exciting speakers lined up for PIANC’s Pre-Coasts & Ports Seminar, Crisis Management and Natural Disaster Response, being held on Monday & Tuesday 9-10 September 2019, in Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart.
With great speakers from around our region, and three international experts from America and Japan, this seminar is a very important one for all those working in ports and surrounds. Register now!
Most of us will face the impacts of natural events whether they are earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones or just extreme severe weather at sometime during our professional career. Other events such as channel blockages or a ship fire can also happen without any notice.
Often, we may not be fully prepared for these events. After all, these are not part of our ‘normal’ professional career. Irregular, unexpected, not normal – this is precisely why these events can have such a devastating impact on infrastructure and communities.
The program has been prepared to allow plenty of time for presentation and questions with 40 minute slots.
More details about the speakers and their topics are here.
Register for the Seminar here now as spaces are limited.
Grateful thanks to our seminar sponsors:
