The latest knowledge, experience and great networking opportunities - Due to their high-quality and multidisciplinary nature, CEDA events are vital channels for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience. Our events aim to be essential to your day-to-day working life. 

Sharing experience

Through presentations and discussions cutting-edge science is transferred into best-practice, and regulatory challenges are converted into valuable opportunities.

Keeping you connected

The informal and friendly atmosphere at our events is ideal for connecting with your peers and for developing and strengthening professional global relationships.  Make the most of our events - gain insights into common work challenges and share solutions.

Keeping you informed

Our event portfolio includes congresses, conferences and exhibitions, seminars, workshops, site visits, training courses and national section meetings. On average there will be at least one CEDA meeting per month taking place somewhere in your region or section.

Our flagship event is the CEDA Dredging Days, the primary international dredging conference in the CEDA region, and once every 9 years  CEDA takes its turn to organize the World Dredging Congress also known as WODCON. WODCONs are trienniel events and are organised in rotation by one of the three associations taht make up WODA (CEDA, EADA and WEDA).
