Speakers will also discuss all new/revised project management provisions in the updates. The new Rainbow Suite will be distributed at the event if available (please visit this page for latest information).

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.



One year after the much anticipated released of the updated FIDIC Suite of Contracts [2017 Edition], Members of the FIDIC Contracts Committee will once again meet Users’ at this flagship event to listen to initial feedback from early adopters and answer any questions the users’ community may still have on the new Books. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the new suite and attend insightful presentations and workshops designed to shed light on some key clauses of the new documents.
