Professionals in the concrete repair industry will come together for a three-day event in Puerto Rico, as the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) will host its 2016 Spring Convention. The theme of the conference is “Maintenance and Protection in Harsh Environments.” ICRI members will be able to improve their work and develop connections with experts from around the globe as they examine the challenges of maintaining quality structures in the most difficult environments. The event will run from Wednesday, March 16 to Friday, March 18, and will be held at the Condado Plaza Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
ICRI has put together a series of 20 technical presentations that will improve members’ understanding of how to better weather the elements when it comes to concrete repair and restoration. The 2016 convention will provide an opportunity for both novices and seasoned professionals to expand their understanding of the industry and of harsh conditions as they learn from experts in the field. The Technical Session Schedule spans all three days and focuses on the theme of improving concrete durability in harsh conditions. The sessions include experts from prestigious architecture firms and international construction companies.
“We are thrilled to offer our membership a diverse lineup of guest speakers who can address one of the most important issues in the concrete repair industry – maintaining high quality structures in harsh environments” said Keith Harrison, president of ICRI. “Our Spring Convention will allow ICRI members to be on the cutting edge of quality, durability and strength when it comes to their work.”
