The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI), along with the European Federation of Foundation Contractors (EFFC), has announced an International Conference on Piling & Deep Foundations next May in Stockholm.

The conference is expected to attract engineers, contractors, suppliers and manufacturers to share ideas and experiences from around the world.

Attendees can expect technical presentations on driven and bored pilings; deep soil mixing, both we and dry; and in-situ, cast and preformed walls; as well as new the latest practices in the foundations industry. At least 50 exhibitors are expected at the expo. Other highlights include the DFI John Mitchell Lecture and a Swedish Heritage Lecture.
