We are looking forward to welcoming you to sunny South Florida for INTERCEM Americas - in Miami on the 6thand 7th December at the Hilton Miami Downtown.

After a two year hiatus from in-person events in the region, we are delighted to welcome back delegates with a full two-day programme of the latest information, news, insight and analysis from across the international cement industry, and to provide you with an opportunity to network and meet with industry peers from across the sector face-to-face.

A lot has changed since our last meeting in Houston in October 2019 – including a new President and administration in Washington, a new infrastructure bill, and new commitments to zero-emissions from cement producers – so there will be a lot to discuss as INTERCEM Americas meets.

INTERCEM Americas, and our host venue – Hilton Miami Downtown – are committed to following Miami Dade County, Florida state and federal guidelines for covid-safe meetings and international best practice for business events. The conference and all Covid-safety measures will remain under constant review to ensure the wellbeing of all attendees and staff working at the event. It may therefore be necessary to cancel or postpone the event in line with Government recommendations.

*Please note.  Attendees are responsible for checking their own entry requirements to the USA to attend the event – requirements may be different from normal and differ by country. Visitors with medical conditions such as respiratory illness or chronic diseases are encouraged to stay home.
