The ACI Foundation’s Strategic Development Council (SDC) announces it is sponsoring the Concrete Start-Up Zone at World of Concrete, January 22-25, 2019.


The Concrete Start-Up Zone features emerging technologies and innovations. Participants will present technologies, equipment, and materials that have yet to be commercially introduced into the market. The Concrete Start-up Zone exemplifies SDC’s support of innovation and technology that can provide solutions to industry wide issues that concrete faces. A key participant this year will be NASA’s 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge. Teams participating in the Challenge will be on hand to provide the status of their research on developing 3-D printing technologies, as well as other Start-Up Zone participants that will highlight new products or technology. The Concrete Start-Up Zone will be located in the North Hall, booth N153.
