Tunnelling event cancelled without warning

21 November 2016

Netherlands – A tunnelling conference was cancelled at the last minute this month. According to sources, a number of delegates and speakers had arrived for the Global Tunnels Safety and Fire Protection Summit only to be told by the hotel that the bill had not been paid and the organisers failed to turn up.

The event was to be held at the NH Hotel at Schiphol Airport and was organised by Arshbi. Arshbi could not be reached for comment. Refunds had been requested by some delegates as Tunnels and Tunnelling went to press, but apparently no reply had been received.
