Cemtech Rome 2017

Cemtech Rome: manufacturing technologies and market insights

Cemtech will return to Rome for the first time in a decade for the forthcoming Cemtech conference and exhibition, to be held on 1-4 October 2017 at the Cemtech Roma Hotel and Conference Center.

The last Cemtech event to be held in Rome in 2006 was one of the most memorable in our history and we look forward to staging another successful meeting this year alongside the spectacle of one of Europe’s grandest cities.

Expect a broad-based, international programme, designed to bring all cement professionals up-to-date on the latest technical advances in cement manufacturing, in addition to timely assessments of worldwide cement markets and industry developments. A special focus on the Mediterranean and north African cement sectors will complement the coverage of activities elsewhere in Europe.

The conference programme will feature 25 informative presentations covering topical themes and the latest industry analysis. This will be accompanied by Cemtech’s international exhibition and an extensive blend of related activities ranging from workshops to plant tours, with plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with other participants. Of course, given the location, complimentary city tours will be organised for partners, who are also encouraged to attend the Gala Dinner to round off the proceedings.
