Due to local, state, and federal regulations, and to protect the health and safety of attendees, the American Concrete Institute[2] (ACI) is transitioning the ACI Concrete Convention from an in-person event in Raleigh, North Carolina, to a fully virtual event. The ACI Virtual Concrete Convention will be held from October 25 to 29.

Attendees to the virtual convention will collaborate on advancing concrete codes, specifications, and practices during hundreds of committee meetings. Technical and educational sessions will provide the latest concrete research, case studies, best practices, and the opportunity to earn professional development hours (PDHs).

Top projects in the ACI Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards will be announced, and several virtual networking and special events will take place. Additional convention details are being finalized and will be announced as they are confirmed.

“The ACI Virtual Concrete Convention will enable the critical work of the institute to continue moving forward,” said Ronald G. Burg, PE, executive vice-president, ACI. “Additionally, this virtual format provides the opportunity for much greater participation from students, professionals, and our global colleagues who may not have been planning to attend in person.”
