GIC 2024 to Showcase Europe’s Concrete Sector

Published: 4/3

GIC 2024, scheduled for April 18-20 at the Piacenza Expo in Italy, is set to be Europe’s largest dedicated concrete exhibition, involving more participants than ever before. A one-stop-shop for all things concrete, GIC will showcase materials, components, equipment, and technology from across the segment, giving a comprehensive snapshot of its current status and future direction.

Beyond mere concrete production, GIC will spotlight products and services for the entire lifecycle of concrete—from aggregates extraction and processing and cement production to the pre-fabrication, construction, maintenance, demolition, and recycling of concrete structures. Exhibitors will include suppliers of concrete batching plants, conveyors, crushing and screening equipment, truck mixers, formwork and accessories, screeds, concrete finishers, chemicals and additives, tower cranes, excavators, wheeled loaders, and more.

Recognizing the growing importance of concrete demolition and recycling as the construction industry seeks to improve its sustainability, GIC 2024 will host the first ever Italian Demolition & Recycling Awards, as well as the latest edition of the Italian Concrete Technology Awards.

Another way GIC is evolving to provide even greater value for its participants is to now include a demo area. Filled with sand and aggregates to simulate a quarry environment, several OEMs have already committed to demonstrating their cutting-edge wheeled loaders and crushers in this new interactive setting.

Over in the auditorium, GIC 2024 will spotlight the crucial role of tower cranes in constructing and demolishing concrete structures. For the first time, the event will host a dedicated conference on tower cranes, emphasizing their use in concrete mixing, formwork, and overall material management for reinforced concrete projects.

Meanwhile, the conference on the construction and maintenance of civil and military airport runways will make a return, attracting leaders from academia, airport management, and infrastructure authorities.


On track for a record

Momentum for the show is building with current bookings indicating that GIC 2024 is well-positioned to surpass the 234 exhibitors and 5,000 visitors recorded during the 2022 edition, which was affected by the pandemic. Meanwhile, more than 60 trade associations and bodies have already confirmed their sponsorship, underscoring the growing anticipation and enthusiasm for the show.

“More and more companies are recognizing the value of our focused and concise format, which provides exhibitors and visitors with greater returns on their time and financial investments, compared to larger, general construction tradeshows,” says Fabio Potestà, Director GIC organizer of Mediapoint & Exhibitions. “I am confident that GIC 2024 will be our biggest and best yet.”
