For some months, indications hinting at a recovery of the Russian market can be observed. Now that the Russian rouble has stabilized, there is also increased interest of the Russian construction industry in relevant machinery and equipment. According to experts, this trend is expected to continue during the next months - and hence ICCX Russia 2017 scheduled for December of this year will come at just the right time.
The 13th ICCX Russia will once again offer a wide variety of interesting and up-to-date topics from the concrete industry. The policy of this event has always been, and will be at all times, to offer its visitors a well balanced program of scientific and practice-oriented speeches and presentations and an appropriate ratio of national and international speakers. These are the aspects that have always been in the foreground of this get-together of expertise.
On 5 December, there will once again be a full-day course on the topic of concrete technologies will be on offer. Just like in previous years, Prof. Viktor Mechtcherine and Michael Khrapko will guide participants through this training program that also strongly invites participants to add their views and know-how to discussions. The course will be held in Russian.
Speeches from science and practice
On 6 and 7 December, scientific and practice-oriented speeches held by both national and international experts will certainly draw the attention of conference visitors at ICCX Russia to focus on state-of-the-art issues related to the concrete industry. Topics will be the most current and progressive production technologies for the manufacture of precast, innovative reinforcement technologies, facts on how to generate customized and highly decorative concrete façades, current challenges in Russian standardization provisions, and numerous other interesting issues. The conference program is already available online at the aforementioned web address.
Exhibition offering supreme level of information
The 2-day conference featuring an accompanying exhibition, where numerous companies from the concrete industry will present themselves and their products and services, has in the past attracted several hundred visitors every year – not only from Russia but from many other regions of the world. This year again, there will be over 100 companies from the precast and concrete industries that will inform attendees about the latest developments within the machinery and equipment sector, concrete chemicals, information technology, and many other sectors. Since the beginning of this year, more than 250 companies have already exhibited their products and services in Russia and many of these companies are returning every year on a regular basis.
Production facility visits
As a tradition, ICCX is inviting visitors to join in, on 8 December as the closing day of the event, to visit concrete production facilities operated in the region of St. Petersburg, an opportunity that has been strongly appreciated in the past. This year, too, the doors of several concrete producers will be open to ICCX participants to provide information on everyday production activities in these establishments.
