About NCB Conference

National Council for Cement and Building Materials (NCB), an apex Research and Innovation organization, under the administrative control of Department for Promotion of Industry & Internal Trade (DPIIT), Ministry of Commerce & Industry and dedicated to research, technology development & transfer, education & industrial services for cement, allied building materials & construction industries, is organizing the 18th NCB International Conference & Exhibition on Cement, Concrete and Building Materials from 27 – 29 November 2024 at Yashobhoomi, IICC Dwarka, New Delhi, India, as a follow-up of the Seventeen NCB International Conferences/Seminars organized earlier.

The theme of this year's conference is "Cementing the Net Zero Future".

This biennial event is one of its kind in this part of the globe where Captains of Cement and Concrete sector, Policy makers, Academicians, Professionals, Engineers and Scientists come under one roof and discuss future action plans aimed towards clean and green production and responsible consumption of the resources utilized in cement sector to ensure long term sustainability.

The forthcoming conference is expected to receive an overwhelming response from various Industrial sectors, Government, Academia, machinery manufacturers & Consultants from India and across the globe
