to be held from 15 - 21 May 2020 in Kuala Lumpur

Preparations for the World Tunnel Congress (WTC) and 46th ITA General Assembly 2020 in Kuala Lumpur are in full swing at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). “Registration should be made as soon as possible due to the early bird offer (that is, before 1 December 2019) and the high demand,“ recommends WTC2020 Organising Chairman Ir. Dr Teik Aun Ooi.

The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia, will welcome more than 2,000 participants from all walks of the tunnelling and underground development space. The Congress will include lectures, technical sessions, committee and working group meetings, site and technical visits, brief excursions, and much more.
