Mr. Burkhardt Hellemann, Head of Delegation of German Industry and Commerce

The construction industry in Ghana is booming and precast is getting more and more into the focus. Precast construction is attractive both for private and public projects; i.e. railway and road construction, airports, infrastructure and urbanization in general with office and housing projects. It is now the perfect time to promote best practice with precast in Ghana and surrounding and thus benefitting from the prosperous economy.
ICCX West Africa will be the new meeting point for the concrete and precast industry. Located in Ghana that is considered to be the entry point for the English speaking countries in Western Africa, the event will be organized on Apr 25/26, 2023. International machinery suppliers from all over the world will be present in the trade exhibition, and in parallel a technical conference will provide up-to-date knowledge for the concrete and precast industry.

During a visit to Accra in February 2022, Germany’s Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner (pictured here on the right with the Head of the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Ghana, Burkhardt Hellemann) was delighted with ICCX West Africa's initiative to promote the construction industry in Ghana and surrounding countries.

LA VILLA BOUTIQUE HOTEL


MOVENPICK AMBASSADOR HOTEL Order form for Movenpick hotel


ACCRA CITY HOTEL 


There is no connection between a hotel and the implementation of the ICCX. The contract is concluded between the guest and the hotel. The organizer of the ICCX is not an intermediary but has only negotiated special rates. 

Warning: Unauthorized Partners of ad-media GmbH / CPI Concrete Plant International / ICCX events
For several years, different companies selling hotel rooms have been actively soliciting companies who participate at ICCX trade shows all over the world. These companies typically make it appear they have received your information from ICCX organizers and that there is a connection between the offer of their hotel rooms and ICCX. In their information, they may imply that companies might be under pressure to either process or reconfirm their existing hotel room booking in the conference hotel. They ask for credit card data
Please note that this is scam!
Sadly, it appeared several times that they confirmed reservations, charged the credit cards and then cancelled the reservations without further notice very shortly before the event. These companies are not affiliated with ad-media/CPI/ICCX and the hotel room reservation they are attempting to sell you is not legitimate. Please refer to the accomodation information that is provided on our website to make a safe and valid hotel room reservation, only.
