With the theme “Innovation and Sustainable Underground Serving Global Connectivity”, WTC 2020 will indeed be the world’s leading tunnelling event that will explore the latest innovations, trends and advances in all areas of tunnelling, i.e. from tunnel project development to both design and construction, as well as to tunnel service life cycle strategies, in a sustainable manner.
The theme of the World Tunnel Congress 2020 has conscientiously been chosen to timely reflect the innovation achievements in the efforts of ITA-AITES in promoting the use of tunnels and underground space for the benefits of public, environment and sustainable development for the past almost half century since its establishment in 1974.
WTC 2020 will feature multiple technical paper presentations, along with tunnelling training courses, poster presentations, the ITA-AITES General Assembly, technical visits to ongoing tunnelling projects in Malaysia, and interesting exhibitions and shows by companies from all over the world presenting their latest tunnelling solutions, innovations and technologies. Along with plenteous opportunities for networking, delegates will have many occasions to learn and share new and exciting developments, and socialise with colleagues and leading experts from all over the world and at the same time conclude successful commercial deals.
WTC 2020 will gather together a technical programme of leading international speakers, a delegation of highlevel officials from various government authorities, private companies and other registered delegates from the engineering and construction industry, an exhibition of international service providers, and a vibrant group of young engineering undergraduates.
The ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress (WTC) 2020 and 46th General Assembly in Malaysia will be held at the prominent Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).
