Stay on top of important developments Underground

Working and building underground is one of the most demanding challenges the building industry faces. The underground space offers many possibilities, but using it to its full capacity still proves to be a world-wide challenge. The increasing digitalization of the construction site and an expanding urban population mean that underground construction needs to move at a more rapid pace. Thus, it’s important to stay on top of new developments in tunnel technology, safety and planning. The VDI Tunnel Construction conference is the ideal venue to meet with tunnel-business experts and colleagues to discuss the future of this fast-moving and growing industry.

A truly international event, this conference brings together specialists from all over Europe, to engage in discussions, exchange experiences and network.
