What is the ICEC World Congress?

ICEC World Congress 2022 is a global conference of the International Cost Engineering Council (ICEC) to be held in conjunction with and hosted by the Dutch Association of Cost Engineers (DACE). For the first time, the congress will be delivered in a hybrid event format, combining a live, in-person conference experience, with a virtual environment.

ICEC 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, petrochemical, steel, mining, food, manufacturing industries.

“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.”

- Robert de Vries, President of DACE.

Note: The organization is closely monitoring COVID-19 regulations in line with advice from the Dutch Government and local health authorities to ensure your health is protected. In addition, they are working with the conference venue partners to ensure a safe and secure environment. 

 

Conference topic: Predictable projects in a dynamic world

The world is rapidly changing in many ways; digitalization, global warming and Covid-19 have a huge impact on the world where we live in. Despite all the changes we strive for predictable project outcomes. The theme of the conference is therefore “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. 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. Around this topic the following 6 themes will be presented: 

  • Sustainability
  • Project Control
  • Change
  • ICT
  • Geographical Influences
  • Human Factor
