The international conference III Forum Concrete in Road Construction jointly organised by PKD, the Association of Cement Producers, the Limestone Industry Association and the Polish Association of Aggregate Producers will be held on 19-21 October in Warsaw. The theme of the conference will focus on concrete technology used in the construction of both the most heavily trafficked expressways and local roads in rural areas, where it is also being successfully applied. The companies invited to participate in the conference will present a wide cross-section of materials, chemical additives, machines and equipment used in road construction and maintenance.
The “Concrete in Road Construction” Forum will have an international character, as a result of the tasks of the Polish Road Congress as PIARC National Committee. The papers will be delivered by experts from European countries and the USA.
For your convenience, the meeting will be organised in a hybrid format with simultaneous translation.
The conference is aimed at road managers at all levels, company representatives and academics.
Event with simultaneous translation Polish/English.
