GA & GALA EVENT 2017

WCA General Assembly

WCA World Cement Conference, 
in association with INTERCEM
                 
"Future Strategies for the Cement Industry"

11th-12th December 2017

Le Meridien Piccadilly, London

The WCA General Assembly and the World Cement Conference, in association with the industry's leading conference organisers INTERCEM, will be held in London on 11th-12th December 2017.

The WCA World Cement Conference will immediately follow the conclusion of the General Assembly of the World Cement Association on the morning of the 12th December 2017.

Designed specifically for senior and executive level representatives of cement producers, this exclusive conference programme will invite leading speakers from both inside and outside the cement industry to address the sector's decision-makers. Key issues around our business will be examined to bring new ideas, critical analysis and fresh perspectives to the table, as the cement industry looks to the transformative years ahead.

The cement industry exists today as the world's foremost building material, providing the construction sector with a durable, resilient and cost-effective product across the globe, facilitating economic and infrastructure development in every country. However, modern industry executives face pressures that extend far beyond local supply and demand economics, and providing shareholders a return on investment. Both domestic and global political pressures must be considered; the environmental impact of the sector faces increased scrutiny and new technologies develop with the potential to change both the supply chain and the way we approach the construction of new homes, infrastructure and cities. Meanwhile, new and novel cements have the potential to become game-changers in our industry.

The cement industry must come together to face new challenges, to promote the benefits on cement and concrete, disseminate best practice and develop new opportunities for the sector. As the WCA convenes for its first General Assembly, this exclusive conference will look to help CEOs and senior decision-members accomplish this as they plan for the coming years. 

Alongside the conference programme, both formal and informal networking opportunities will be provided for attendees.
