In May 2017 the world’s leading cement industry event will return to the historic city of Istanbul, as The Timeless City hosts our flagship conference, INTERCEM 2017.
Straddling two continents, Istanbul is the city where East meets West and for centuries merchants and traders have met there to make deals, to hear about the latest news and developments and to catch-up with friends - making the city the perfect host for INTERCEM.
Turkey is a major international cement producer and exporter, providing cement to more than 85 countries across the globe and exporting more that 11% of its total production. Turkish cement can be found in homes, schools, hospitals, bridges and infrastructure developments in countries as far away as Asia, South America and West Africa.
Supported by the Turkish Cement Exporters (TCE), an organisation representing the global interests of Turkish cement exporting companies, INTERCEM 2017 is set to be the year’s largest independent gathering of international cement producers, traders and equipment and service providers, offering delegates extensive and unsurpassed networking opportunities across the sector.
Over the two-day conference programme a specially-assembled panel of industry experts will bring delegates the latest information, analysis and opinion on key industry developments through an extensive programme of plenary sessions covering a wide range of topics.
Alongside our usual global cement forecasts, updates on industry trends and specialist shipping reports, the conference will also analyse geopolitical developments assessing the potential for future political and economic stability in the Levant region and up-to-date forecasts from often under-reported markets including Central Asia, the Balkans and the Black Sea, as well as key international markets including Russia and Iran.
In a special session, the conference will also examine what the future holds for Portland Cement, and how future construction technology, improved logistics and market requirements may change the types of cement required.
With attendees expected to join the conference from more than 40 countries, don’t miss this opportunity to catch-up with your industry peers, meet with new clients and suppliers and interact with fellow industry experts.
We hope that you will be able to join us at the new Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center for INTERCEM 2017.
