In the week following Thanksgiving, the international cement industry will join us as North America’s biggest and best-attended independent cement industry event, INTERCEM Americas, meets on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.

Known globally as one of the most spectacular and famous streets in the world, the Las Vegas Strip provides a backdrop to the conference like no other for catching-up with old friends, meeting new colleagues from the industry and also switching off at the end of the day. From spectacular shows to fine dining, and from casinos and bars to pools, rollercoasters and theme parks there is very little that Las Vegas cannot offer!

But while the temptations of the city are plentiful, INTERCEM means business and over two full days of conference sessions attendees will receive the very latest insight, analysis and forecasts from across the region.

2017 has been a year full of bullish optimism for the cement industry in the US, with widespread talk of major infrastructure development under the new President; however, the general demand forecasts show a slower recovery than many expected - the conference will look at scenarios across the US and also in detail at the key states of California and Florida. A special session - led by Marc Hebert of Jones Walker LLP will also look to Washington, and consider what recent developments on The Hill mean for the cement demand and imports.

Further afield, delegates can hear the latest global scenarios from the award-winning building materials team at Exane BNP Paribas and updates from Mexico and South America.

Participants will also have the option of one of two parallel technical sessions – the first looking at how the Internet of Things is driving major developments across the sector and the second at the latest state-of-the-art terminals for the cement sector.

You are also encouraged to join a Special Session on Thursday afternoon that will focus on resilient construction and the cement sector. Following the recent hurricanes in Florida, Texas and the Caribbean, this is clearly an important and topical subject and with a panel of experts, we will be addressing key questions including: How can the sector promote further the benefits of resilient construction? What are the barriers to higher standard building codes being imposed? What lessons can be learnt from past natural disasters – and the cement industry's responses to them? What should the industry be doing now in communities affected by recent events?

INTERCEM Americas in Las Vegas is sure to be a memorable event both inside and outside the conference room. Don’t miss the opportunity to join us in the Entertainment Capital of the World this November.
