“A great way to start the year ahead is to go to the INTERCEM Shipping Forum; It brings us all up-to-date on the global cement industry, its changing shipping trade-lanes and standard contracts to fix our business for the year ahead”      -    Peter Sand, BIMCO

Taking place on the shores of the Mediterranean in the famous maritime city of Marseille, the INTERCEM Shipping Forum is the market-leading, must-attend event for anyone involved in cement and clinker trading, seaborne transportation and logistics. Already more than eighty delegates are registered from fifty companies across the cement industry supply chain, including leading cement producers, traders, port operators, shipowners, charterers, ship builders and port-side equipment providers.
The INTERCEM Shipping Forum is a unique one-day event. Designed specially for senior professionals working across the cement and shipping sectors, the Forum combines a comprehensive programme of presentations selected to bring you the latest information and markets forecasts you need at the start of the New Year, with unsurpassed networking opportunities to meet with industry peers.
Over the last 5 years, in excess of 620 delegates have participated in this unique event for the cement shipping community, to discuss the latest development and trends, find out about industry changes and hear the latest forecasts and market projections.
The 2017 Forum in Marseille is taking place in partnership with the Port of Marseille-Fos, widely recognised as one of the most important ports in Southern Europe. As part of the collaboration between INTERCEM and the Port Authority, delegates will have the exclusive opportunity to participate in a Pre-Forum Port Tour and the newly opened cement terminal belonging to Intertitan SA, the French subsidiary of the TITAN Group.
