In order to be able to guarantee a secure event organisation, the date of ICCX Central Europe 2021 has been postponed to the end of June. The 8th ICCX Central Europe will now be held on 28/29 June 2021, so that all decision-makers in the Central European concrete industry can once again gather in the usual manner at the conference hotel Double Tree by Hilton Hotel & Conference in Warsaw. Traditionally, the two-day conference is accompanied by a large trade exhibition.
As always, the topics of the lectures have been selected taking into account the interests and problems of the Central European concrete industry. As every year, the opening lecture will deal with the situation of the construction industry in the Central European countries and provide an outlook for the future. If there is light at the end of the tunnel, current figures and forecasts provide information on the impact the Corona pandemic has had and will have on the Central European construction industry.
In the subsequent part of the lecture programme, the classic topics from the fields of precast concrete elements, concrete products and ready-mix concrete are on the agenda. Self-compacting high-performance concrete with micro-reinforcement, recycling, sustainability in the concrete plant, regional applications and experiences in the field of 3D concrete printing technology, handling and assembly of precast concrete elements, digitisation of construction processes, paving stones made from 100% recycled raw materials, etc. There really is something for everyone.
Planning and execution of conventional and infiltration-capable paved surfaces
The last block of lectures will be closed by the seminar of Dipl.-Ing. Dietmar Ulonska. The graduate civil engineer has been managing director of the renowned concrete association Straßen, Landschaft, Garten e.V. (SLG) since 1999. He is also a member of national and international committees and the author of numerous specialist publications and a speaker at various lectures with a focus on "paving construction with concrete blocks".
Mr. Ulonska will provide basics and examples from expert reports on the topic of the planning and execution of conventional and infiltration-capable paved surfaces. One focus will be on the increasingly popular infiltration-capable eco-pavers in Poland.
Accompanying trade exhibition
The accompanying trade fair covers all areas of the concrete industry, from precast concrete elements to ready-mix concrete, and from concrete products for building construction, garden and landscape construction to concrete pipes and manholes. Months before the event, most of the exhibition space was almost fully booked with more than 100 booths.
