Van Aalst Bulk Handling BV will be pleased to welcome you at stand number 11 at Intercem Americas in Houston, Texas 7th-9th October 2019. This October, INTERCEM, the world’s leading cement industry conference will return to Houston, Texas, for our annual INTERCEM Americas meeting.

The US cement market continues to grow steadily (3% in 2018) while it is recognised across the political divide that there is still a significant infrastructure deficit that needs to be addressed. However, with analysts suggesting that domestic capacity utilisation will top 90% by 2020, it is likely that cement and clinker imports will continue to grow across the country at a significant rate (9% nationally in 2018), imports in our host state of Texas alone were up almost 30% last year. This is very much in contrast to the scenario facing much of the rest of the global market where we are witnessing huge overcapacity and exportable surpluses.

INTERCEM Americas is the USA's biggest independent meeting dedicated to the cement industry, regularly attracting upwards of 250-300 senior cement industry representatives from more than 30 countries - providing the best opportunities to meet and network with fellow cement industry leaders, as well as take advantage of our market-leading conference programme. 

With an invited panel of speakers, chosen for their industry knowledge and expertise, only INTERCEM Americas will bring delegates all the latest news, forecasts, insight and analysis in relation to cement and clinker production and trade throughout the USA, Canada, Caribbean and Latin America.
