PRESENTING THE NEW FIDIC SUITE (YELLOW, RED & SILVER BOOKS), 2017 EDITION
As you will already know, the FIDIC 1999 Suite of Contracts (Red Book, Yellow Book and Silver Book) has now been updated by the FIDIC COntracts Committee. FIDIC concentrated on updating the Yellow Book 1999 first, and has continued this work by adopting harmonised changes for the updates of the Red Book and Silver Book. Members of the FIDIC Contracts Committee will unveil the main changes to the 1999 Suite and explain why the changes introduced in the 2017 edition were deemed to be an improvement that will benefit the global FIDIC users' community. This is no doubt a defining moment for the global construction industry involved with FIDIC and we invite you to join us to discover more about this exciting relaunch of FIDIC’s iconic suite of contracts.

New Case Studies of FIDIC Application in Practice
Experienced FIDIC Contract Users from large infrastructure companies such as Ramboll and others will once again share lessons learnt in using FIDIC forms of contract to underpin some of the most challenging aspects. We have assembled a number of new case studies from different industries and geographies to help bring the benefits to life and to help you understand the practical challenges of FIDIC application in practice. Projects under review include an infrastructure for environmental cleaning project in Romania, using the FIDIC Red Book, among other insightful cases covering other forms of contract and project types.
New International Contractors' Panel - The In-House Perspective
The brand new session on contract administration and dispute avoidance from an international contractor’s perspective will assemble seasoned contractors and in-house contract specialists from large infrastructure and engineering firms operating at the coal face of real world implementation of FIDIC forms of contract. The panel will be discussing critical areas of contract administration including optimisation opportunities and common pitfalls to avoid, as well as the latest trends in dispute management and avoidance. Finally, each of the speakers will provide a key take-away, or mantra to live by, as a user of FIDIC.
