World Of Concrete Europe 2024

The European gathering for the entire concrete sector, mobilised to meet net zero challenges

World Of Concrete Europe, to be held from 24 to 27 April concurrently with INTERMAT, will bring together the entire value chain of the concrete sector around an exhibition space and a congress. As the showcase for a profession united and mobilised to build tomorrow better and map out a collective net zero trajectory, this unmissable event aims to shine a light on the impressive innovation dynamic driven by all the players in the concrete industry.
The combination of an exhibition space and an educational forum will enable visitors to discover the complete and varied proposition offered by the sector at every stage in the chain, and an exhaustive overview of the latest breakthroughs in the European concrete market in terms of products, technologies, processes, applications and equipment.

World Of Concrete Europe, embedded within the Building, Civil Engineering and Concrete Sector hub at Intermat, is expected to bring together 200 exhibitors, 2,000 visitors and 500 forum attendees. All the key players in the European concrete sector will be present at this benchmark event to create a platform for dialogue and represent the image of a universal, versatile and innovative material leading an environmental transformation.

Several major companies have already confirmed their attendance, such as: 3R SCHNELL, AMOG SLR, BETONSTAR-HANSA, BLEND PLANTS, BONNEUX MACHINERY, BOSCH BÉTON FRANCE, CIFA, EUROMECC, EUROMIX MTP, EUROP’EQUIPEMENT, HANSA, IMER FRANCE, KRAFT CURING SYSTEMS, MAPEI, PL2M, PUTZMEISTER, SCHWING STETTER, SELFBETON, SOMERO ENTERPRISES, TEKA FRANCE…

The indoor exhibition zone

Here, the entire concrete industry will be represented around a comprehensive offering from upstream to downstream:

• Facilities and machinery for concrete production
• Facilities and machinery for pre-cast concrete
• Materials for concrete
• Equipment and machinery for special and decorative concrete
• Equipment, delivery and laying of ready-mixed concrete
• New technology, services and engineering for concrete
• Concrete industry, other equipment and machinery
• Concrete circular economy

The talks and workshops forum

Around the central theme of “low carbon”, the World Of Concrete Europe forum will present a series of educational talks and explanatory training workshops entirely dedicated to the concrete sector, the material itself and its various applications. The forum is organised by a steering committee made up of experts from the industry’s main trade associations and bodies such as CERIB, CIMbéton, FIB, l’École Française du Béton, France Ciment, and UMGO-FFB.

The sessions will be hosted by well-known figures from the building, masonry and civil works communities, members of construction federations and of the largest European companies in the sector.

Through around ten talks sessions, six themes focussing on the future of the material in its market have been selected to elicit thought and debate:

• Decarbonisation issues: ambitions and timeline of the French Climate Plan, the National low carbon Strategy, RE 2020 and international labels.
• The recipes of concrete to decarbonise the industry: the clinker factor, new low-carbon binders, additives in concrete (slag, pozzolans, ternary cements, etc.) exemplary projects using low-carbon concrete, etc.
• Low-carbon logistics: short delivery channels, freight, personal accounts from organisations working in cement, ready-mix, pre-cast solutions, etc.
• The process: cutting energy consumption, new low-carbon cement production units, alternative fuels, industrial investment, low-temperature processes, etc.
• The circular economy: responsible sourcing, recycling, reuse, quarry reorganisation, production of recycled aggregates, recovery of spoil, feedback on worksites, etc.
• Innovations: formulations, the role of admixtures for the use of low-carbon concrete, off-site and pre-cast concrete construction methods, modular construction, 3D printed concrete, etc.

INTERMAT Innovation Awards

The ninth edition of the international INTERMAT Innovation Awards will distinguish the equipment, technology, services or products that contribute to driving progress in the construction, infrastructure and materials industry, in five categories corresponding to each of the five hubs of expertise at the show, including the Building; Civil Engineering and Concrete Sector category. A special World of Concrete Europe award will also be presented to commend a company offering an innovation specifically aimed at the concrete market.

A message from Christophe Lecarpentier, director of the AgEquipment and Construction Business Unit at Comexposium: “Whether in new-build, renovation, public works or civil engineering, the concrete sector has a primordial role in sustainably building and developing our communities and rising to the multiple challenges set out in the National Low Carbon Strategy. The 2024 edition of World of Concrete Europe pursues the ambition of bringing together all its key players who are innovating across the board to reduce the carbon footprint of construction. To discuss this and trigger forward-looking insights, the emphasis will be placed on an educational programme of talks and workshops drawn up by a steering committee comprising the leading experts in the industry. Beyond offering just a trade show, we intend to put into perspective the purposes for which concrete production and laying equipment is intended, and establish a unique platform for sharing and dialogue around a common vision of environmental excellence.
