WTC2015 and 41<sup>st</sup> ITA General Assembly

27 May 2015: Dubrovnik on the glistening Adriatic Sea held a particular draw for the 1,571 registered delegates at the World Tunnel Congress WTC2015 hosted by ITA Member Nation Croatia in May. Competition for one’s time was intense with six simultaneous technical sessions, two exhibition areas, meetings in four separate hotel venues and trips to the sea and to the famous old town and its castle all on the agenda during the three-day event. During the ITA General Assembly, the United Arab Emirates was elected to host WTC2018 after the international delegations meets next year in San Francisco, USA in April 2016 and after that in Bergen, Norway in 2017.
