Bringing together a Community for a Sustainable Future

‘The Flood & Coast Conference and Exhibition has become a must-attend event for the world’s leaders in Flood, Coastal & Erosion Risk Management (FCERM)’

Flood & Coast 2023 is an industry-leading annual event for those working towards a sustainable future, is set to take place from 6 to 8 June at the Telford International Centre.

Tickets and registrations are now available on the website.

Flood & Coast is not just a conference; it is a community of diverse individuals and organisations working together and seeking innovative solutions aimed at helping the people and places most at risk from flooding and coastal erosion. The event provides a platform for sharing ideas, debating strategies, and celebrating successes.

This year’s event will feature an array of world-class speakers, including experts in flood risk management, climate change, coastal erosion, and resilience. Attendees can also participate in interactive workshops, networking sessions, and site visits to see innovative flood and coastal defence projects in action.

In addition to the main conference programme, Flood & Coast 2023 will feature an exhibition highlighting the latest products, technologies, and services in the field of flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM).

“The Flood & Coast Conference and Exhibition has become a must-attend event for the world’s leaders in FCERM.” Says CIWEM Head of Events Irina Danilova.

“Flood & Coast provides a space to share and debate innovative solutions to managing the increased risk of flooding in our fast-changing climate. It is also a space to network and an opportunity to learn from experts spanning our diverse sector.”

“This year the event will feature a first-class programme of plenaries, action-packed schedule of side events and workshops, a lively exhibition hall where 60+ organisations have already signed up to have a presence, the Innovation Hub, Early Careers and Education Zone, the Flood & Coast Excellence Awards and many more.”

Day 1, supported by our partners The Environment Agency, is themed on Flooding and Coastal erosion risk management in a changing climate.
