Flood and Coast conference and exhibition in March 2017 announced

The Environment Agency with Trio Events will convene the second Flood and Coast conference and exhibition and are seeking all flood and coastal risk management professionals to attend what promises to be the largest gathering of thought leadership for flood defence and coastal erosion in the UK.

Led again by the Environment Agency, the event will draw together key stakeholders from the flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCRM) community, including local authorities, civil engineers, infrastructure owners, consultancies, utility companies, contractors, businesses, community groups, flood research consultants and universities from across the country.

Clare Dinnis, Deputy Director, Flood and Coastal Risk Management at the Environment Agency and Chair of the Advisory Committee, said “We are trying to reach a wide audience covering the whole flood risk community. If we can help to connect people and share ideas, then I think that we will be better placed as a community to support businesses and people at risk. I would like people to leave the conference and exhibition with far more contacts in the flood and coastal risk management community, with ideas to help their work area and to help them understand the part they play in shaping the future of flood and coastal risk management.”

Val Johnston-Jones, Flood and Coast Project Director said “Our first Flood & Coast event in February 2016 was set up to tackle exactly the sort of flood disasters that happened in Cumbria, Yorkshire and Somerset and the devastating effects of coastal erosion in Cornwall, Norfolk and other parts of the UK due to on-going climate change. The 2016 event featured 170 speakers, over 100 exhibition stands and attracted visitors from all over the UK and abroad. Flood & Coast 2017 will build on this success giving all those involved in managing flooding and coastal erosion the chance to swap ideas, listen, learn and plan for the future.”

“We will be showcasing the latest thinking from academics leading research at our top universities, as well as from the practitioners and specialists who deliver FCRM excellence on the ground. If you have a story to tell about your research or how you’ve applied new technologies or approaches to FCRM problems, we want to see you at the event.”

The conference and exhibition aims to share the latest ideas and showcase up to the minute flood defence solutions and explain what the Environment Agency can offer to help prevent future flooding for local authorities and stakeholders.

The event, taking place at the Telford International Centre, 28-30 March 2017 will host fellow professionals to exchange a broad range of perspectives on innovation and best practices in FCRM.
