    Press & Media Relations

    Welcome Members of the Media! Whether you are joining us on-site at WTC 2017 or covering the conference from afar, we are here to provide all of the latest conference information that you need.

    The organizing committee for WTC 2017, would like to invite press and media to this congress in order to learn, write and share news and impressions from this annual congress.

    Surface challenges – underground solutions will be the theme of the congress.

    The congress gathers around 1500 tunnelling experts worldwide for presentations, working groups, seminars and site visits. We also like to invite politicians and future clients for a special seminar in order to show how many of their challenges on the surface that could be solved by underground works, creating sustainable solutions to improve the environment.

    The media distribution area will be located in a premium footfall area – in the Main Entrance / Secretariat & Registration area

    There will also be a press/media room with standard office equipment, (desk/ PC/printers/internet), close to this.
