ICEC, the International Cost Engineering Council, represents more than 300.000 ICEC Professionals (Cost Engineers; Project Controls Professionals; and Quantity Surveyors), in more than 40 Associations working in more than 120 Countries. The ICEC Professionals work globally in amongst others the building, infra, petrochem, steel, mining, food, manufacturing industries.
The ICEC World Congress brings together Principals, Customers, Engineers, Contractors and ICEC Professionals to share experiences and knowledge around the theme of the ICEC World Congress, which is “Predictable Projects in a Dynamic World”.
A Dynamic World refers to innovation (technical & IT), environmental challenges (sea rise, sustainability) and economic developments (world markets, COVID). Research shows that large numbers of projects are completed with a time and/or a budget overrun, a challenge for the ICEC Professionals to improve Predictability. The combination: “the need to be predictable in a dynamic world” should provide interesting presentations, panel discussions and discussion amongst attendees of the ICEC World Congress deepening our understanding of this phenomena.
Considering the unpredictable consequences of COVID the ICEC World Congress will be in a hybrid format. We aim for a “live program” in 3
parallel rooms in “de Doelen”, a conference Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and “on line” virtual live streams supplemented with an
on-demand channel, with recorded presentations. The live program will be centered around key note speakers, presentations (reflecting
experience, research, developments) and panel discussions on selected subject to deepen the subject. Furthermore there will be selected
We anticipate approximately 300 participants, with a maximum of 700 participants in “de Doelen” and between 700 to 1500 participants to
connect virtually, without a maximum.
“The congress is designed to educate professionals towards a variety of global industries that powers from precision. Cost and value professionals are critical thinkers who strive to provide their clients with accurate costings and funds management from pre-design to design to construction to operation to obsolescence.” says Robert de Vries, President of DACE.
