Taking place in London on 22nd and 23rd November, the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) will hold and inaugural dinner, annual general meeting (AGM), and symposium. The event will focus on future trends in the global construction sector, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing GCCA member companies and the wider cement and concrete industry.

Sir David Adjaye, an architect, will address the opening dinner and the symposium will feature a panel discussion on global trends in construction. This panel will be fronted by Michael Birshan (McKinsey & Company), Elizabeth Heider (Skanska), and Haiyan Wang (China India Institute).

“As we continue strengthening the association’s representation across all major cement-producing regions, our inaugural AGM and symposium will be an important opportunity for our members and affiliates to come together and discuss the priority matters that will inform the GCCA’s work programme, as well as the trends that will shape the future of our industry,” said Benjamin Sporton, Chief Executive of the GCCA.

The GCCA was launched in early 2018 to represent the global cement and concrete sector. The association currently has 23 member companies, with seven national and regional associations becoming affiliates. Asia Cement (Taiwan), Cementos Molins (Spain), and Medcem (Turkey) are the latest companies to join, while CEMBUREAU (the European Cement Association), CMI (Ireland), and SNIC (Brazil) are the newest affiliates.
