About The Event

The seventh annual INTERCEM Shipping Americas meeting will be held at the The Higgins Hotel New Orleans on the 15th-16th April. Following a successful meeting in Tampa last year, an audience of more than 120 executives is expected once-again at INTERCEM Shipping Americas in 2024. With representatives participating from cement manufacturers, traders and ship owners, brokers, terminal operators and equipment/service providers from across the US and beyond. Recent INTERCEM Shipping Americas meetings have attracted delegates from more than 20 countries including Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Colombia and Mexico – key exporters to the USA, the largest importer of cement in the world. 2023 was a rather turbulent year for US imports with to geopolitical issues having direct effects on global shipping demand and now new transport routes. However, the number of materials shipped to supply the cement industry has continued to grow. The increased demand for slag, fly ash, pozzolana alongside other raw materials has continued drive this increase in demand– often requiring additional shipments, additional storage and new systems. INTERCEM Shipping Americas has become a much-valued meeting place for executives from the cement and shipping industries in order to grow their network, do business and exchange ideas and forecasts, with many delegates attending year after year. The Mississippi delta is the largest port of entry for imported cement and related materials into the US. Driven by increased construction and the demand on cement market from infrastructure development. The mouth of the Mississippi is home to several cement import and redistribution terminals with significant investment in new facilities, storage and portside logistics in recent years.

“I can honestly say that in our early years we attended practically every cement and construction conference we could find, but within a year or two it became obvious that INTERCEM was by far the best and most professionally organized, and frankly the most well attended of all the conferences, with the outstanding subject matter and very interesting attendees.”
