14 - 16 February 2018, Ossa, Poland
In little over half a year, the 3rd ICCX Central Europe will take place at the Ossa Congress & Spa in the city of Ossa, Poland. Following this two-day industrial conference scheduled for 14 and 15 February, which is accompanied by a tradeshow featuring more than 100 stands, a half-day technical training course can be attended. Preparations for this event are already underway at full speed.
Compared to its 2016 counterpart, the ICCX Central Europe 2017 organized in February of this year offered - in addition to the technical training course - yet another amendment that was well accepted by visitors: the “Concrete Block Centre“.
The Concrete Block Centre has been located in a special part of the tradeshow accompanying the event. It is here that the tradeshow exclusively concentrates on concrete goods ranging from classical concrete pavers to wetcast products, in other words, covering the entire range of activities that these producers are dealing with. Taking into account the positive feedback received by this offer, the Concrete Block Centre will once again form a part of ICCX Central Europe in 2018 as well.
Speeches and presentations by international experts
Apart from the impressive tradeshow where about 100 international companies from the concrete and precast industries will present themselves and their products, the ICCX Central Europe will once again offer a comprehensive program of speeches and presentations with international experts from both theory and practice addressing current issues pertaining to the concrete industry.
In the field of concrete technology, for example, Prof. Joost Walraven from TU Delft, The Netherlands, will address the topic of self-compacting, steel-fibre reinforced concretes. How to optimize the planning with precast will be the issue presented by an expert of the Technical University of Wroclaw during the ”Precast Session”. The advantages derived from the use of plastic fibres in concrete pipes will be demonstrated by Albert de la Fuente representing Spain in his speech forming part of the program item ”Concrete Pipes and Manholes”. And the possibilities of opening up new markets for concrete goods producers by introducing new products without the need of new investments in new machinery will be the topic addressed by IAB Weimar.
The program will offer all participants interesting topics, no matter, whether one’s personal focus is on precast, readymix, concrete goods, or concrete pipes and manholes.
Technical training course as an additional feature of ICCX Central Europe
The ICCX Central Europe organized in February of this year offered a technical training course following the actual twoday conference. This additional offer was well accepted. Almost 50 participants of ICCX Central Europe stayed another day at the congress hotel and attended this half-day course. As a result, it became clear to the organizers that it is appropriate to enlarge the Specialists’ Program with this additional offer during the February 2018 event as well.
So this time, a technical training course addressing the issue of “Quality Control in Concrete Goods Production“ will be offered after the actual ICCX event as ”extra time”.
