IDE seminar falls to COVID-19…

Key industry event postponed amidst Coronavirus fears.

The Institute of Demolition Engineers’ Autumn seminar is the latest public event to fall victim to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally scheduled to take place in September in its One Great George Street spiritual home in London, the event has joined the likes of the Hillhead exhibition and Wimbledon fortnight by succumbing to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The IDE’s annual general meeting – scheduled for 27 November – remains on the Institute calendar at present, which will be of some comfort to AR Demolition’s Richard Dolman who is set to become the new IDE president on that day.

The loss of the Autumn seminar will, however, be widely felt by IDE members – particularly those in the south of the country – for whom the event is an important learning opportunity, a key source of CPD points, and a chance to socialise with their demolition engineering peers.
