From the 24th – 26th June 2019, we will mark a major milestone in the history of INTERCEM when we convene our landmark 100th meeting in Istanbul. Founded in 1985, INTERCEM is established as the leading conference resource for the cement industry. For 33 years, the meeting has been providing market-leading networking opportunities, the highest quality insight, analysis and market forecasts, and exhibitions showcasing the best cutting-edge technology for the cement industry.
As well as providing delegates with market-leading presentations and the latest industry data from across the globe, the unique nature of this occasion will also provide the conference with an opportunity to give a historical context to the current cement market, and the strides forward that have been made in production techniques, environmental responsibility and cement and concrete technology, as well as looking at what the coming decades might hold.
INTERCEM 100 will be hosted in association with our conference partners at Turkish Cement Manufacturers’ Association (TÇMB), Cement Industry Employers’ Association (ÇEİS) and Cement, Glass, Ceramics and Soil Products Exporters’ Association (Turkish Cement). The Turkish cement industry has been a major supporter of our meetings – as sponsors, exhibitors and delegates - since the first INTERCEM meeting and we are honoured to bring this very special celebration event to this global hub for the construction materials sector. Turkey first hosted INTERCEM in 1994 and has held the meeting 4 times since – proving an ever-popular choice with delegates.
Since 1985, the conference has been attended by more than 30,000 delegates in 52 cities and 34 countries across five continents, becoming the preferred meeting place for cement industry professional from across the supply chain and around the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to join us on the border between Europe and Asia as we celebrate our 100th INTERCEM meeting.
Further details will be announced soon.
If you would like further information on participating as either a sponsor or exhibitor at INTERCEM 100 please contact Jonathan Shelbourne for further information.
İstanbul's strategic location has attracted many marauding armies over the centuries. The Greeks, Romans and Venetians took turns ruling before the Ottomans stormed into town and decided to stay – physical reminders of their various tenures are found across the city. The fact that the city straddles two continents wasn't its only drawcard – it was the final stage on the legendary Silk Road linking Asia with Europe, and many merchants who came here liked it so much that they, too, decided to stay. In so doing, they gave the city a cultural diversity that it retains to this day.
'But what about the food?' we hear you say. We're happy to report that the city's cuisine is as diverse as its heritage, and delicious to boot. Locals take their eating and drinking seriously – the restaurants here are the best in the country. You can eat aromatic Asian dishes or Italian classics if you so choose, but most visitors prefer to sample the succulent kebaps, flavoursome mezes and freshly caught fish that are the city's signature dishes, washing them down with the national drink, rakı (aniseed brandy), or a glass or two of locally produced wine.
Some ancient cities are the sum of their monuments, but İstanbul factors a lot more into the equation. Chief among its manifold attractions are the locals, who have an infectious love of life and generosity of spirit. This vibrant, inclusive and expanding community is full of people who work and party hard, treasure family and friendships, and have no problem melding tradition and modernity in their everyday lives.
