Cemtech Conferences and Exhibitions has successfully concluded its 16th annual European event between 27-30 September, attracting over 250 participants from 40 countries.

Held within the luxury of the Fairmont Hotel, Monte Carlo, Monaco, the three-day event offered participants an in-depth programme comprising world-renowned speakers, an international exhibition and unrivalled hospitality levels.

A first class speaker line-up provided a full range of business insight, market knowledge and technical expertise. Topics under discussion this year included issues relating to the future of the cement industry such as the ever increasing demands set by the sustainability agenda as well as the medium-term uncertainties of the global economic environment. Sessions were dedicated to in-depth analysis of regional construction and cement markets, including Europe, CIS countries and Africa. Trade and shipping developments were also highlighted, as were knowledge and insight into the latest developments in cement manufacturing technology. .
 
A sizeable exhibition area enabled over 30 of the world’s key equipment suppliers to the cement industry to share their knowledge and expertise. And, as always, Cemtech’s hospitality levels were at their highest with delegates treated to evening functions culminating in an unforgettable Gala Dinner evening.

Proceedings were concluded with a tour of Ecocem’s recently completed 0.7Mta slag grinding facility at Fos-Sur-Mer. This joint venture project between Ecocem Materials and Arcelor Mittal will be the world’s first carbon neutral grinding plant.
