Bradford-based concrete admixtures specialist Oscrete will be the Principal Sponsor for The Institute of Concrete Technology (ICT) 47th Annual Convention Symposium to be held on April 4, 2019 at Wembley Stadium, London.
The one day symposium is the institute’s main meeting of the year and will see academics and practitioners from across the globe attend to discuss the latest developments in the concrete industry.
The theme for this technical symposium is Efficient Concrete Construction and Professor Johann Plank from the Technical University of Munich will deliver the keynote address.
“We are delighted to be partnering with ICT for this influential event that addresses current key issues within our industry,” said Oscrete operations director Scott Wilson.
“Prof Plank will be focusing on Next Generation PCE Superplasticisers which play an important role in our product portfolio so it couldn’t be more relevant.”
Oscrete values the high standards and expertise for which the institute is renowned. All Oscrete sales team members undertake ICT Technical Qualifications which are recognised worldwide.
Along with esteemed speakers, the April symposium will also feature an exhibition, and at the end of the day a gala dinner.
ICT president Raman Mangabhai said: “ Oscrete’s sponsorship of this symposium builds on a long-established support for the work of the ICT and is very much appreciated.”
The event provides an opportunity for individuals from all areas of the supply chain – technical managers, specifiers, contractors and manufacturers, to come together to learn and discuss the ways in which concrete is developing and the latest applications brought about through technological advances.
These developments are transforming the market place for concrete and the ICT symposium highlights the benefits and opportunities, spotlighting what the future holds for the concrete industry.
