ACI to Host Second 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge

Registration is open for the second 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge, organized by the American Concrete Institute (ACI). 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge (24HCK) is a free, virtual conference that brings together 24 ACI international chapters and industry partners. Each chapter and industry partner will moderate one hour of the 24HCK by engaging regional concrete experts to present the latest research, trends, and studies to the concrete world.

This year, because of the global importance of climate change, each participating chapter and partner was asked to make one of their presentations on carbon-neutral concrete and sustainability in the concrete industry. The conference will begin on July 12, 2022, at 2:00 PM Detroit (Eastern Daylight Time) and will end 24 hours later on July 13, 2022, at 2:00 PM Detroit (Eastern Daylight Time).

“24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge offers a unique opportunity to get involved with the international concrete community,” said Ronald G. Burg, PE, Executive Vice President, American Concrete Institute. “It also provides an open platform for our speakers to share their expertise with an engaged, global audience.”

ACI Vice President Tony Nanni and ACI International Advisory Committee Chair Kari Yuers invite all who are interested in learning more about concrete construction, design, and repair to join ACI this 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.
