The European Demolition Association, EDA, has been the demolition platform for national associations, contractors and suppliers for over 40 years. EDA has always ensured the safety of all those who are part of this great family.

For this reason and due to the current health situation, the EDA Board of Directors decided to postpone the annual convention that was to be held from 4th to 6th June 2020, in Belgrade (Serbia).
