The ACI Virtual Concrete Convention was attended by over 2,500 professionals and students from around the world.
Originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta, GA, USA, as a hybrid event, the convention transitioned to fully virtual to convene leaders and practitioners throughout the concrete industry from October 17-21, 2021. These individuals work to improve the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of concrete projects. The virtual convention provided a forum for networking, education, and an opportunity to provide input on the concrete industry’s codes, specifications, and guides.
“The ACI Virtual Concrete Convention brings our international community of engineers, architects, educators, and concrete professionals together,” stated Ronald G. Burg, PE, Executive Vice President, American Concrete Institute. “The collaboration that occurs here is vital to the advancement of the industry.”
