ACI to Host Third Annual 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge

ACI to Host Third Annual 24 Hours of Concrete KnowledgeRegistration is open for the third 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge, organized by the American Concrete Institute (ACI). 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge 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, the event returns to the original concept, where each co-host can select the two best concrete-related research papers/presentations from their country or region. The conference will begin on July 11, 2023, at 2:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time) and will end 24 hours later on July 12, 2023, at 2:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time).

“The 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge event has become an integral experience for concrete enthusiasts around the world to share relevant concrete-related topics,” said Ronald G. Burg, PE, Executive Vice President, American Concrete Institute. “The Institute strives to disseminate concrete knowledge to all communities, and 24 Hours of Concrete Knowledge is a platform well suited to share this information.”

ACI Vice President Michael Paul and ACI International Advisory Committee Chair Samhar Hoz 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.
