This year, INTERCEM will be marking 20 years since we held the first dedicated independent cement conference in the Middle East and North Africa in Dubai in 1999. As part of the celebrations, we will be bringing our market-leading INTERCEM Shipping Forum to the region for the first time, at the Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai on the 16th and 17th September.

For the past 8 years in Europe, and since 2016 in the USA, the INTERCEM Shipping Forum has regularly convened cement producers, traders, ship-owners, charterers, ports/terminals and port-side equipment/service providers for events full of unsurpassed networking opportunities and detailed analysis and forecasts in relation to international cement industry shipping and trade. Following the success of these meetings, we are excited to invite local and international industry representatives to join us in Dubai this September, for the first time, to look specifically at the Gulf, Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.

This region has become increasingly important to the international cement trade, with increased exports of cement and clinker from across the GCC, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan and others to Bangladesh, East Africa, and markets further afield. While at the same time, Dubai has become increasingly recognised as a global epicentre for shipping and trade.

INTERCEM Shipping Dubai will take an in-depth look at the major global and regional trends that affect the Dry Bulk market , cement & ports, IMO 2020, freight rate forecasts, trade flows, the dedicated cement carrier fleet, Shipping Finance & law , blockchain, GGBFS and Fly Ash shipping + much, much more.

Our global programme of meetings dedicated to shipping for the international cement industry is unique, and these meetings have become must-attend annual events for this important part of the cement industry supply chain. So, save the date in your diary, and don’t miss the opportunity to join us in the spectacular surrounds of the Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai for this very special Forum event.
