Record entry for World Demolition Awards


The 2023 World Demolition Awards have attracted a record entry as contractors and manufacturers across the industry compete for high-level recognition in Canada later this year. This initiative aims to recognise innovation and best practices in a range of categories.

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner during the World Demolition Summit in Toronto on 17 and 18 October.

Now in their 15th year, the awards have a special place for demolition and recycling professionals. The winners are chosen by people who know the industry.

The international judging panel comprises European Demolition Association president Stefano Panseri, his predecessor Francisco Cobo, US National Demolition Association president James Milburn, Australia’s Clinton Dick, senior North Americans Bill Moore, Dan Costello and Jim Graham, and Europe-based experts Henrik Bonnesen and Patrick Frye.

Together they will judge across 11 categories as the entries are whittled down. The resulting shortlists will be announced in August.

The World Demolition Summit also includes a one-day conference and a networking drinks reception. It is organised in cooperation with the National Demolition Association of the USA with the support of the European Demolition Association.
