World Cement Association to discuss future of the industry at annual conference

Published by
World Cement,

The World Cement Association (WCA) has announced the topics for this year’s WCA World Cement Conference, in association with Intercem, which will focus on the ‘Future for Cement Industry’, following a reshaping of the industry caused by digitalisation, new regulations and barriers of entry as well as dramatic changes in supply and demand patterns within the sector.

Experts will also discuss the growing role China has within the sector and the effects of the trade wars on the global cement industry. The conference will take place at the Royal Garden Hotel in London on 5 December. Pre-registration for the annual WCA World Cement Conference is now open.

Song Zhiping, President of the WCA and Chairman of CNBM-Sinoma, commented: “We are very excited about the level of enthusiasm we have received from speakers, sponsors and attendees for this unique WCA World Cement Conference. We look forward to bringing together all the cement producers in the world regardless of their size or origin for a substantive discussion of real-world solutions to key issues facing the cement industry today including our Climate Change Action Plan.”

CEOs and leaders of international cement companies and supporting organisations will join the conference that will host distinguished panellists and speakers, including business leaders, investors, and policymakers.

Like last year, the World Cement Association will hold its General Assembly on the morning of the day of the event.
