Why You Should Attend

EPC Contract & Risk Management for Mining & Energy-CANADA

Engineering, procurement, and construction companies rely on having a clear, effective, and comprehensive agreement in place between contracting companies. In order for owner’s to accomplish a project, complex or small, they must proactively prepare for negotiations and risks that may arise in the pre-contractual phase so that failures and claims do not occur. And if, or when, they do occur contractors and owners must know how to react while protecting their bottom line.

This premiere marcus evans conference will focus on the increasing importance of strengthening the relationship between owner and contractor to mitigate the overall risk for both. Specifically in Canada, there are trends that have become apparent in the last year to 18 months that must be considered as well.
