ACI & UAE Chapter Host Education Program At Big 5 Dubai 2019

Nov. 26, 2019

The American Concrete Institute and the ACI UAE Chapter hosted a day long education program at the Big 5 Show in Dubai, UAE, November 25-28, 2019.

The daylong program, presented by members of the ACI UAE Chapter, gave attendees an introduction to ACI and its mission to develop and disseminate concrete knowledge. Attendees were also able to have an in-depth look into topics including cracking, certification and inspection of ready-mix plants, recycled aggregates, and ACI 318-19 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.

The UAE Chapter education program attracted more than 150 people. Presented by Khaled Nahlawi, PhD, PE, Salah Altoubat, PhD, Nancy Kachouh, PhD Student, Yusuf Abu Sadaa, and Bill Hutton, attendees had the opportunity to ask these experts more in-depth questions about the presented topics and about ACI’s activities in the Middle East.


In addition to the presentation, ACI talked with Big 5 attendees in the exhibit hall about the Institute’s technical resources, membership opportunities, and the recently released ACI 318-19.

Partnering with The Big 5 is one of the ways ACI is establishing stronger relationships with organizations internationally. ACI maintains its relationship with the international concrete community through its participation in international events, its active and influential International Chapters, its collaboration with International Partners, and through its Ambassador Speaker Program.
