Cost Engineering Event 2013

From April 17 - 19 nearly 200 people from across the globe visited the 4th edition of the Cost Engineering Event in Hotel Ara, Zwijndrecht. With interesting presentations from experts speakers, participants were able to gain knowledge about estimating, planning, cost control, value engineering and much more. Of course, there was also time for an informal chat, for instance during dinner or lunch. Once more, the excellent weather and beautiful location provided a great setting for the Event.

Part of the Event program was also the Chapeau and Ambassador Awards. The Chapeau Award is given to a talented person who has made a remarkable performance in the cost engineering profession. This year the Chapeau Award was given to Janne Skovgaard Kristensen (NNE Pharmaplan). The Ambassador Award is for a person who has made significant contributions to the profession through his/her career. This edition's Ambassador Award was given to Larry Dysert (Conquest Consulting Group).

On April 19, Lance Stephenson hosted a workshop about Earned Value Management, which gave participants practical insights applicable to their day-to-day projects.

We would like to thank all the speakers, participants and the organization team for their contribution and support. We already look forward to the next edition and hope to see you all again!
