Great success at EDA’s Annual Convention!


  • The 2022 edition of this event took place from the 9th to the 11th of June
  • It has been carried out in collaboration with SEDDRe, the French association, and the European Decontamination Institute

The European Demolition Association (EDA) held its 2022 Annual Convention in a unique location. The Eiffel Tower was one of the venues chosen for this celebration, which took place from June 9th to June 11th.  This Annual Convention was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the French association, SEDDRe, and the European Decontamination Institute, EDI.

During these 3 days, professional content, exhibitions, networking opportunities, and leisure activities took place.

This event was divided into the professional part, in which several conferences were held on Thursday and Friday, and the leisure program. Special mention deserves the Gala Dinner at which the ceremony for the change of the EDA President and the new members of the Club of Honor took place.

The conferences and networking activities were carried out at the Pavilion Dauphine Saint Clair, a luminous 19th-century palace in Paris. During the professional program, 15 conferences were held to discuss demolition, decontamination, and recycling. Topics such as the challenges of demolition with explosives, the EU policies for reaching a circular construction ecosystem, decontamination of hazardous substances, and the contribution of recycling to a circular construction branch, were discussed.

Moreover, the Gala Dinner was held in the breathtaking Eiffel Tower. No detail was missing at the dinner: there was live music, and a delicious menu and all attendees were delighted to be able to witness the celebration of the ceremony of the change of the EDA President and the Club of Honor.

We lived exciting moments, especially, when Mr. Francisco Cobo handed over the position to Mr. Stefano Panseri because, since this moment, a new stage begins for the association.

For those of you who came and for those of you who were not able to attend this year, we look forward to seeing you at the next EDA convention, which will take place in Amsterdam, 15-17 June 2023.
