Cemtech Asia 2011

This year’s Cemtech Asia Conference and Exhibition, held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Bali Indonesia, before an invited audience of cement specialists from over 24 countries, has been successfully concluded.

This three-day event, hosted between the 19-22 June 2011, brought together a wide range of experts to debate an array of management, operational and technical issues for the benefit of this international audience. Discussions on the present status and future prospects of the Asian region were high on the agenda, with a particular focus on the host country of Indonesia – a nation now looking set to dominate the Southeast Asian cement sector in terms of consumption growth, sales and capacity expansion over the next decade. All in all, some 25 industry specific presentations were given and the organisers are indebted to the Indonesian Cement Association and its Chairman, Urip Timuryono, for the help given in planning and executing this event. Furthermore, thanks to all the speakers who gave up valuable time and effort to present during main conference as well as during thed well-attended half-day technical workshop.

Appreciation is also due to the international Cemtech exhibitors, all of whom expressed approval of the facilities, participating customers and related hospitality levels. In fact, to all who attended the conference, the Grand Hyatt Bali clearly provided a unique tropical 5-star venue with an excellent range of services, superb ocean-side location and not least, delightful well-qualified hotel staff on-hand throughout.

Planning for next year’s Cemtech Asia is now underway. We look forward to seeing you all once again at what is developing as a major cement event for this dynamic region. Watch out for early news on venues and dates for 2012.

Better still – see you there!
