The Covid Pandemic and new health protocols have increased conference venue requirements which now need to allow sufficient social distancing and easy and safe logistics. The 13th conference was initially planned to be held in Bucharest, Romania, but unfortunately it has not been possible to secure a suitable Conference venue in time, so the event must be returned to voting.
As agreed, locations for the next EFEE World Conferences on Explosives and Blasting will be voted on and decided in the next EFEE Council meeting on 6th May in Berlin! We invite you to submit your application to host one of the following events:
- The 13th Conference in 2025
- The 14th Conference in 2027
All member countries are welcome to submit an application and we are especially looking forward to applications from countries which have not yet hosted an EFEE conference. The following EFEE member nations have not hosted an EFEE Conference so far: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and Ireland, which will host the 12th Conference in 2023.
We have attached information about how to apply, what it takes to arrange a successful conference and what benefits it could bring to your National Association and business. It will take time to prepare your application so, please contact our conference organizer Tyler Events (James Tyler, firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be happy to assist and support your application. Igor Kopal, the chairman of the Conference Committee (email@example.com) is also available if you have any questions or are interest in submitting an application.
In order to participate in the final voting in Berlin (on 6th of May 2023), please submit your preliminary application information to Igor Kopal, Chairman of the Conference Committee as soon as possible but latest by 31st March. Your preliminary application should include information on the suggested city, preliminary venue options and the conference (13th, 14th or both) you will be applying for.
It is an unique opportunity to host an EFEE Conference on Explosives and Blasting and present your country to the entire international blasting community. We are looking forward to receiving many good applications for these events!
