ACI Spring 2018 Convention - American Concrete Institute

1,800 50 $ $10 - $835

Overview

Event Overview:

ACI conventions are dedicated to improving the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of concrete structures. Conventions provide a forum for networking and education and the opportunity to provide input on concrete industry codes, specifications, and guides.

ACI conducts two conventions each year: one in the spring and one in the fall. Sites of the ACI conventions vary throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico and are chosen to give as many members as possible an opportunity to attend. 

At each of these conventions, committees meet to develop the standards, reports, and other documents necessary to keep abreast of the ever-changing world of concrete technology. Committee meetings are open to all registered convention participants to attend.

Additionally, ACI conventions offer numerous forums to network and connect with some of the most well-informed individuals in the concrete industry. Expect to meet with engineers, architects, contractors, educators, manufacturers, and material representatives from all over the world.
