The history of the creation of a business community in the demolition industry in Russia began in 2019, when it was decided to hold the first International Demolition Forum (RDF) in Moscow in February 2020. The initiative was supported by the European Demolition Association and generated strong interest from Russian demolition contractors.
The main media partner of RDF, the international magazine Professional Demolition international (PDi), in its January-February issue, noted the following: “The attendance exceeded the most daring expectations of the organizers: the forum was attended by about 110 delegates representing 60 companies. As important as the numbers are, it ultimately depends on the quality and status of speakers and participants. And there was no shortage of world leaders in the dismantling industry at the forum. ”
Reputable speakers from eight countries made their presentations at the event.
The outcome of the first RDF was the decision of the leaders of the demolition industry in Russia to create a national association. The official name is the National Association of Demolition Organizations, abbreviated as “NADO”. More than 20 Russian demolition contractors are already members of the Association. “NADO” will protect the interests of its members, ensure the exchange of experience and introduce the best modern technologies and existing world practices in Russia. The demolition market in Russia is in an advantageous position – there is an opportunity to interact with foreign colleagues who are more advanced in the development of the industry.
“NADO” understands that it can significantly shorten its own path of development if it accepts support and correctly integrates foreign experience that foreign partners are willing to share.
Achieving our goals will have a positive impact on the safety of dismantling operations, human health and environmental protection.
Together we can make a difference.
I invite you to take part in this new event!
