NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks 2016, co-located this year with the American Concrete Pumping Association’s Education Conference, is taking place in Nashville, TN, September 18-20.

Year after year, the conference brings together longstanding NRMCA business meetings, social events, informative educational seminars and keynote presentations. This year’s ConcreteWorks features educational seminars designed specifically for the individual educational tracks (Operations, Environmental and Safety, Business Administration, Promotion, and Technology). NRMCA also continues an exciting transition for the Exposition portion of NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks by maintaining the expanded size of the expo hall allowing our industry to bring in the latest and greatest equipment, scheduled dedicated exposition time, special activities taking place in the hall and the co-location with the ACPA Education Conference. The features bring even more equipment and concrete industry personnel to the show.

Also, don’t forget to come out, watch and support a host of concrete mixer truck drivers from around the USA competing to earn the title of “Best of the Best” at the 11th National Mixer Driver Championship!
