Our American counterparts, the National Demolition Association, headquartered in Washington, USA hosted their annual convention at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Centre, Aurora, Colorado from 22nd to 25th March 2019.
NFDC Immediate Past President and demolition industry veteran Mr. David Keane, attended for the full duration, representing NFDC in his typical articulate, professional and charismatic fashion.
Just returning from his long travels last week, NFDC were able to catch up with David briefly for a short report and to share a few snaps from his time spent at this spectacular 3-day Convention, which concluded with a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony attended by over 1000 demolition industry movers and shakers from the US and Europe.
David was fortunate to be granted the opportunity for a short speaker slot to share the latest news from the UK demolition industry and give a positive shout out to the Federation and its membership of accredited demolition contractors back in Blighty.
David was in good company, as EDA President Francisco Cobo was also present, along with Jose Blanco, Secretary General of the EDA and Andreas Pocha, General Manager of the German Demolition Association.

NFDC Honorary Life Vice President, David Sinclair, also made the transatlantic journey for this special event of networking and learning with demolition industry peers – and to see the latest offerings from more than 90 exhibitors.
