I’m very interested in constant exchange of information between countries, specifically between Russia and Germany. I consider this Forum as a platform, where different levels meet — science, producers and state — and people seek and find potential for further development.

International Construction Exhibition “Cement. Concrete. Dry mixtures” this year brought together 12 countries on one site. Over 100 leading companies of the industry presented their products and developments. Among the new exhibiting companies: Erisim A.S. (Turkey), Scantech (Australia), KZSU (Russia), Ormetiz (Russia), Eigenmann and Veronelli — Russo (Russia), etc. The full list of exhibitors can be found on the exhibition website: infocem.info. This year the exhibition was visited by over 5100 specialists.

The impression of this conference is that it is a very open-minded conference, so a lot of speeches about transparency and market, and figures about cement, concrete and construction industry development. Therefore, for me, it is very interesting and very helpful to have this impression on these developments in Russia.

It was a great pleasure for me to speak on the congress. The many presentations held on the congress gave me lot of new information and led to many interesting discussions, especially with Prof. Gagarin.

And I have to emphasize that the events entire organization was of excellent quality – everything worked absolutely smooth! Many thanks for that.

The business program of conferences was attended by 400 people from Austria, Germany, China, Turkey, France, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Spain and the Russian Federation. More than 45 foreign and domestic speakers made presentations.

On the first day, two training seminars were held: “Concrete Technologies”, led by Professor Grigory Nesvetayev and Doctor of Science Lei Lei, and “Adhesives based on dry building mixtures”, led by Professors Andrey Pustovgar and Sergey Sivkov. The number of participants in the seminars increased threefold compared to last year.

By tradition, two scientific and technical conferences were held as part of the Construction Forum: “ConTech: Chemistry. Production. Precast” and “Modern technologies of dry building mixtures — MixBuild“.

The key event of this year’s Construction Forum was the round table “Declaration: what awaits the producers of concrete and dry building mixtures”. Representatives of the Russian Federal Accreditation Service and Russian Federal Technical Regulation and Metrology Agency (ROSSTANDART), leading specialists and heads of industry unions and associations helped to reveal the key details of the declaration of conformity and discussed the main issues of interest to participants.

We thank all participants of the exhibition and business program, and hope that you have gained new knowledge and were able to establish business contacts. Next Construction Forum “Cement. Concrete. Dry mixtures” will be held on November 10-12, 2020 in Expocentre, Moscow.
