Second ICCX North Africa records growing interest
The ICCX North Africa 2023, held in Casablanca on 14 and 15 September, proved to be a great success despite the earthquake in the Marrakech region a week earlier, attracting around 350 participants from the concrete and construction industry - almost 15% more than the first year. The event once again provided a platform for knowledge transfer, networking and the exchange of best practices. Numerous international suppliers to the industry presented their innovative solutions and products to interested trade visitors.
An interesting selection of nationally and internationally recognised experts included Prof. Mohammed Sonebi from Queen's University Belfast who, with his expertise and inspiring presentation on bio-based concrete compositions, highlighted an opportunity for the concrete industry in North Africa and captivated the audience. The very descriptive presentation by Adil Dahmani, project manager at UMGC, one of the largest construction companies in Morocco, also fascinated the audience. He presented the first large-scale construction project in Morocco to be made almost entirely of precast concrete elements, with two more of this kind to follow in the near future.
