The foundation of the International Cement Forum dates back to 1999, when the 1st Scientific and Practical Conference “Modern Technologies of Dry Mixtures in Construction — MixBUILD» was held. There were over 80 participants. Conference developed very quickly and became a yearly traditional event not only for dry mix producers, but also for the specialist from the related fields – concrete and cement. And in 2004 the 1st International Specialized Exhibition “ExpoCem” and Scientific Readings on Cement “CemRead” were held in Moscow in the International Trade Center.
