The first edition of InterFLOOD Asia is set to make an impressive debut from 11-12 April 2018 at Suntec Singapore.
Running alongside the fifth edition of InterMET Asia, the extreme weather event, InterFLOOD Asia focuses on the challenges and consequences presented by climate change and rapid urbanisation.
A two-day conference, free hands on workshops and an international exhibition of flood management companies will offer professionals from the private, public and economic sectors the opportunity to discover the latest thinking on how to anticipate, mitigate and manage flooding impact.
An insightful two day conference programme includes world class speakers with first-hand experience in forecasting, mitigation and recovery. Key issues which will impact designing, planning and constructing future proof flood infrastructure and early warning systems will be examined via case studies and discussion. Sessions will cover issues such as the role of big data in forecasting and management, structural solutions, non-engineering solutions, technical certification and recovery processes.
