Registration is open for the fourth 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge, a free, virtual conference organized by the American Concrete Institute. Beginning at 2 p.m. EDT on July 9, the event brings together 24 chapters and partners of ACI to present the latest research, trends and studies from their country to the concrete world. The conference will conclude 24 hours later.

“ACI’s global reach is on display throughout the 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge conference,” said Frederick H. Grubbe, MBA, CAE, ACI Executive Vice President. “To gain firsthand knowledge on what is happening in the worldwide concrete industry, tune in to the exciting presentations, discussions and remarks that cover happenings and perspectives from Hong Kong to Baghdad to Mumbai [in India]. This is a can’t-miss event!”

“[The conference is] positive proof that ACI is always advancing,” said Michael J. Paul, ACI President. “This year’s 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge promises to be our best one yet as experts from around the world share their insights about the most abundant manufactured material on earth.”

Paul and Maria Juenger, senior vice provost for graduate and postdoctoral studies at the University of Texas at Austin, invite all who are interested in learning more about concrete construction, design and repair to join ACI in July.

Roughly one month after the 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge is completed, all 24 hours of presentations will be available on-demand to registered attendees.
