It is difficult not to appreciate the importance of this conference. This is the third time that we have attended and each time we find topical issues. This time, of course, the relevance exceeded all expectations — everything was very close to our working theme — white cement — we had a very interesting dialogue with consumers, producers and competitors.

Thanks for being invited to your conference. It was perfectly organized and it was an honor for me to have a speech and to moderate one session. For me it was definitively worth travelling and I had some really good conversations in between the sessions and during the evening events.

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!

It was a real pleasure to attend your conference, overall it was one of the best I attended.
Having the conference, the exhibition and the side program, which was also very nice by the way, it was perfect combination.

Dr. Eng. Sci., Chair for construction chemistry, Technische Universität München, Garching, Germany

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.

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.

Wonderful event, quite traditional, always gathering a large number of people. And it is clear that you can find all the very best from domestic manufacturers and from our foreign colleagues. It is also very remarkable that during the exhibition there are many scientific and technical events that attract a lot of specialists from various fields, not only construction, but also related industries.
