Careful preliminary selection of speakers allowed to make the conference itself extremely interesting and saturated, and participation of guests from different countries in the conference allowed it to become a truly international conference with a high level of scientific reports

The Forum’s business programme this year included

  • Training seminar for technologists of commercial concrete and reinforced concrete enterprises “Ensuring quality and economic efficiency of concrete mixtures and concrete” under the guidance of Dr. Vyacheslav Ruvimovich Falikman and Dr. Johann Planck;
  • XX International Scientific and Technical Conference “Modern Technologies of Dry Mixtures in Construction – MixBuild”;
  • V International Scientific and Technical Conference “Industrial Housebuilding: Production, Design, Construction – BlockRead”;
  • Round table “Development of production and application of special types of cement for concrete and dry mixtures”.

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.

Well, it is a very well organized conference and there is a good mix between research and industrial, so that is a thing that I very appreciate. Because in some other conferences sometimes it is only for researchers and we get far from industry. Therefore, here we can really hear some real problems.

Before the round table, Yaroslav Stoupa, Vice President for Production and Technical Development of Eurocement Group, and Roman Borisov, Managing Director of the Association “Union of Dry Building Mixtures Producers”, signed a memorandum of cooperation and development of import substitution in the field of white cement production and application.

In addition, the participants of the conferences were offered technical excursions to the factories producing reinforced concrete / reinforced concrete products and dry building mixtures. Thus, the participants of the BlockRead conference got acquainted with the work of the DSC-Progress plant, and the participants of the MixBuild conference were able to visit the production of dry building mixtures by Triada-Holding. The participants had an opportunity to get acquainted with modern technologies and discuss issues of interest to them with specialists.

The key event of the Forum has traditionally been the large-scale International Construction Exhibition “Cement. Concrete. Dry mixtures”. More than 120 leading companies from 15 countries presented their products and developments. This year the exhibition was visited by more than 5500 people.

For twenty years now, the Construction Forum has been a leading international platform where scientists, manufacturers and builders from Russia and other countries have been exchanging experience and discussing ways to develop the industry.


We invite you to the XXI International Construction Forum “Cement. Concrete. Dry Mixtures”, which will open its doors on November 27-29, 2019.

We are waiting for you next year!

I think that conferences like this are very valuable, because your bring people with a policy background, people with technical skills together in one Forum, so they can learn from each other and inform each other.

«Taking part in the XVI International Scientific and Technical Conference «Modern Technologies of Dry Building Mixtures in Construction» has been a great opportunity to share and broad my knowledge with other people. The event has been arranged in an awesome way: congratulations to the organizers. I have been impressed by the high level of the lectures and by the opportunity of interacting with manufacturers, scientists, sales agents, project managers…»

The event is very useful, I think, for the industry, because the experts can come together, they can listen to new technology and implement it in their work, so I think it is a very good dissemination of technical information to the industry.
