The Asia Pacific Contract Users’ Conference 2019 takes place in Hong Kong from 25-27 June.

FIDIC’s latest conference for users of its contract suites takes place in Hong Kong from 25-27 June 2019.

The Asia Pacific Contract Users’ Conference 2019 is shaping up to be a must-attend event for FIDIC contract users in the region and from further afield and delegates are encouraged to book a place before the deadline for early-bird bookings ends on 31 May.

The event will provide essential networking and guidance on successfully using the FIDIC standard forms of contract, managing major projects, handling claims, dispute avoidance and resolution and much more. Delegates will also be able to take part in a number of new conference sessions including Global Implementation of FIDIC - Spotlight on China and Hong Kong and Preparing for the Emerald Book (FIDIC’s new tunnelling and underground works contract).

Experienced FIDIC contract users from the region will be present at the conference to share lessons learnt in using FIDIC forms of contract to underpin some of the most challenging infrastructure projects in Asia. A number of new case studies from different industries and countries have been assembled to help bring the benefits of using FIDIC contracts to life and to help delegates understand the practical challenges of FIDIC application in practice.

A new international contractors’ panel will also bring together experienced contractors and in-house contract specialists from large infrastructure and engineering firms who are involved in the real-world implementation of FIDIC forms of contract. The panel will discuss several critical areas of contract administration including optimisation opportunities and common pitfalls to avoid, as well as the latest trends in dispute management and avoidance.

The conference takes place at the Novotel Century Hong Kong, located in the heart of Wan Chai, and is well situated for easy access to the MTR Wan Chai Station (A1 exit) and Star Ferry Terminal just five minutes away.

With more than two dozen FIDIC experts set to address the conference, the event will provide an unrivalled knowledge base on FIDIC contracts and how best to use them. Every delegate will go away with something new, armed with fresh insights on using the contracts and inside information from industry experts.
