Easy and Inexpensive to Attend

Unlike the annual national conference that can consume a whole week, we compress our technical session into 1 day with optional workshop sessions the day prior.

Technical Program

Conference Location

The vendor's night social and technical sessions will be held at the Allentown Renaissance Hotel. The conference will conclude with a tour of our local historical cement sites and the four local cement plants.


Plant Tour

One of the highlights of our program will be the bus tour featuring the rich history of the cement industry in the Lehigh Valley. The tour includes a photo opportunity at the Coplay Bottle Kilns and tours through 4 cement plants in the valley. There is alo a stop at the Northampton Cement Museum. A once in a lifetime opportunity to see the past, present, and future of our industry.
