Taking place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, the conference will be co-located with The Big 5 Construct Southern Africa (previously known as the African Construction Expo) and Totally Concrete Expo.
PPC Cement and Nextec will host an investment breakfast on the morning of the conference (6.30am start) aimed at facilitating constructive dialogue around investment for smart cities across Africa. The breakfast will be officiated by Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, head of investment and infrastructure office at The Presidency.
PPC Cement recently launched its Building Africa Report 2022 and will be highlighting some of its key findings at the conference. With cement being a carbon intensive material, the report addresses the challenge of decarbonisation as it looks at ways to enhance efficiency by designing more efficient buildings and extending their lifetimes, and by exploring cement alternatives such as hybrid cement and timber.
