It is clear that we now exist in a globalised world where distance is less significant than ever, and communication is in real time regardless where in the world we are. Consequently all developed countries, their economies and industries, have transformed the ways in which they work in order seize the opportunities that globalisation offers.
The demolition industry is no exception, and in developed countries is moving toward establishing world-wide relationships with the main objective of sharing innovation, information, concerns, solutions, best practice and challenges. As the European Demolition Association (EDA) we are proud to confirm that this has been our ultimate aim for several years.
The relationship between EDA and the National Demolition Association of the United States (NDA) is at an all-time high, with the participation of presidents, secretaries and members from both associations in shared annual events. The EDA also extends this collaboration to countries outside Europe and the USA, including Australia, New Zealand, and Japan to name just a few.
The task of establishing strong relationships between the demolition industries from all over the world is quite onerous. The EDA has made significant advances during recent years, welcoming several members from countries outside Europe including the USA, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Turkey and Russia.
Through the involvement of all members, wherever they are in the globe, and through the forming of strong relationships with fellow associations, we at the EDA believe that international demolition networking is wholly achievable. The EDA is always available to assist in the development of national associations, and we were recently involved in the development of associations in Serbia and Finland, as well as assisting in the reactivation of the Republic of Ireland Association.
Finally, The EDA endeavours to hold activities and events with the objective of gathering demolition companies together. These events are attended by members from Europe, and our invitation to attend is always extended to demolition companies from all over the world.
Our next event is the European Demolition & Decontamination Annual Convention 2018, which will be held in Vienna, Austria from 7-9 June. Despite the title of this event containing “European”, this event is open to all demolition companies from any corner of the world.
We respectfully invite all demolition professionals who may be interested in participating to visit our web page: www.europeandemolition.org/convention in order to obtain information about the event.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The EDA was founded in 1978 and is the leading platform for national demolition associations, demolition contractors and suppliers. The EDA has a strong focus on developments in Europe, which are of interest to the demolition industry.
