INTERCEM will return to East Africa in 2016 as the world’s leading cement industry conference returns to Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, for the second time.

INTERCEM’s last meeting in the city in 2014 was the largest gathering of cement industry professionals ever held in the region, attracting more than 225 senior stakeholders from more than 35 countries, as well as an extensive exhibition of more than 25 globally recognised equipment and service providers. 

Following on from that very successful 2014 meeting, INTERCEM Africa will convene in 2016 at a transformational time for sub-Saharan African producers and traders. Competition in the region is increasingly fierce in spite of the growing demand for cement (per capita consumption topped 100kg in 2014 for the first time), increased construction spending and new infrastructure and real-estate projects. With further capacity additions announced over recent months, across the region large multi-nationals, independent producers and grinding plants reliant on buying clinker are locked in a battle for market share, and should the trend continue, competition is only likely to increase over the coming years.

Only INTERCEM Africa will bring you all the market insight, news and analysis you need, presented across a full two day programme hearing from domestic and international cement producers and traders, and recognised industry experts; including the latest global cement forecasts from Exane BNP Paribas’ award-winning building materials team.

Key topics to be covered in the programme include:

  • Global cement demand, the impact of M&A and the changing industry outlook in China
  • Competition, imports and consolidation in the East African region
  • Global solid fuels market trends
  • Regional and international cement trading 
  • Cement storage and transportation logistics in Africa
  • International currency markets and managing the effects of dollar debt 
  • Funding and managing CapEx projects in the region
  • Latest technology updates

+ much, much more

Once again, alongside our market-leading conference programme, attendees will also be able to take advantage of unsurpassed networking opportunities and the largest exhibition of cement equipment and service providers in sub-saharan Africa.
