About this event

Does your work take you by, over or into ports, harbours, coastal defences, renewable energy, estuaries and around the coast or the sea?

ICE South East England's highly regarded Working in the Wet conference will return in 2018. Running since 2002, this popular biennial conference is designed for industry professionals, students and others connected to the maritime field to share knowledge, best practice and latest innovations.

The full day conference will explore the impact of climate on coastal areas, how to harness energy from alternative sources such as offshore wind farms, and look at how we can develop resilient marine and energy infrastructure. In addition to the talks throughout the day, a number of exhibitors from across the industry will be present in a separate exhibition area.

The 2018 conference coincides with the 200 year anniversary of the Institution of Civil Engineers - ICE 200 will be celebrating the impact of civil engineering in the community.

Download the event flyer for further details about the presentations that will be given throughout the day. Please book and pay for your ticket using the online booking system. Note that you do not need to be an ICE member to use it.
