About Cemtech Conferences

The leading conference event for the global cement sector, organised by International Cement Review. Delivering business insight, market knowledge and technical expertise.

Cemtech conferences are a well-established feature of the annual cement industry calendar in all regions. Over the years thousands of delegates have participated in our meetings, which have earned a reputation for being the premier event for cement professionals worldwide seeking insights into the technology and markets of this important global industry.

The Cemtech story began in March 1991 when the first major eastern European cement conference and exhibition was organised in Prague, Czech Republic, before an audience of more than 300 cement specialists over a three-day event.

The event rapidly established itself as the leading independent conference and exhibition for the global cement industry, meeting every year and attracting large international audiences from across the world.

In 2006, Cemtech began expanding its successful concept to other regions. Cemtech Middle East & Africa (MEA) – now in its 15th year – has become a central meeting point for all those operating in the region. The latest MEA event was held in Dubai, UAE, between 16-19 February 2020. The event attracted senior industry delegates from all corners of Africa and the Middle East.

Cemtech also made its debut in the Americas in 2006, hosting its first dedicated conference for the regional cement sector in the United States. The most recent meeting under the Cemtech Americas banner was held in Orlando, Florida, in December 2015.

Cemtech Asia has also evolved into an annual industry gathering with a special focus on the vibrant Asian and ASEAN markets. Previous meetings have been held in Singapore, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Vietnam and Thailand.

Cemtech philosophy

The success of Cemtech is simple. The philosophy for each three-day event is to develop a high-quality programme with authoritative presentations by senior industry figures alongside an international exhibition with world-class suppliers showcasing state-of-the-art equipment, innovations and technical solutions. Delegates are invited to attend cement plant and terminal visits, as well as expert technical workshops. Cemtech provides the highest-quality hotel venues and unbeatable Cemtech hospitality throughout. Spouses and partners can enjoy complimentary tourist programmes. And, not least, Cemtech offers delegates and exhibitors the lowest-possible prices to attend and participate.

A Cemtech event is an opportunity to meet international colleagues, engage in the important issues of the day and explore opportunities for the future.
