Whereas the first event in 2014 focused more on the Polish concrete industry, the ICCX Central Europe has developed continuously in the years since then. A one-day event became a two-day expert conference that was supplemented two years ago by a technical course and thus a third day. Until now the venue for the ICCX Central Europe has been the Congress Hotel in Ossa, about one hour by car from Warsaw Airport. In the coming year the ICCX Central Europe 2019 will take place for the first time directly in Warsaw. The new venue is the conference hotel Double Tree by Hilton Hotel & Conference, located very close to Warsaw International Airport.
In relocating from Ossa to Warsaw, the organisers are reacting to the growth of the event and to the change in the stream of foreign visitors. Whereas the conference hotel in Ossa was well situated for car drivers - and virtually all Polish participants come with their own car - the distance from the airport to the hotel in Ossa wasn't really ideal in view of the greatly increased number of visitors from other countries.
The ICCX Central Europe has established itself in just a short time beyond Poland's borders and a better airport connection was thus indispensable. The logical consequence of that was to relocate the event directly to the Polish capital, as is now happening.
The decision-makers from the Central European concrete industry will thus meet for the first time directly in Warsaw for the ICCX Central Europe from 13 to 15 February 2019. The two-day technical conference with accompanying trade exhibition will be followed once again on the third day by a technical course. In keeping with the tradition, there will be an evening event on the evening of the first day of the congress in the hotel's own "Zazen" entertainment lounge.
Despite this significant optimisation through relocation to a central venue with a perfect infrastructure, the organisers have been able to keep the admission prices stable for the visitors. The relocation to Warsaw will therefore have no negative effects for any participants, but many will benefit from it considerably.
