Successful premiere in mid-summer

After a one-year break due to Corona, the 66th Betontage once again took place, in late June, as an attended event – a new experience, also for BFT International as media partner. The predominantly positive response of the more than 1,800 participants attested the organizing team – FBF Betondienst around Managing Director Dr. Ulrich Lotz – a good eye. This was evident both in respect to the new date in mid-summer and the new event venue at Congress Centrum Ulm, as well as to this year’s motto “Sustainable building with concrete”.

Not only since this event has it become clear that our precast concrete industry as well has a gratifyingly high innovation potential, and that we need not fear comparison with other so-called leading industries such as medical and genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. At the two Innovation Panels 5 and 9 moderated by me, for example, every single seat was taken at times. Even I, as “concrete head” of many years standing, couldn’t help but being amazed by what the one or other of the total of 25 speakers presented in the way of the interesting and promising new future-oriented product developments and/or reference projects presented.

At the jury session on the eve of the Betontage, too, the members of the jury, chaired by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Harald Garrecht, had the agony of choice in deciding which of the nearly 30 submissions deserved the Innovation Prize of the Supplier Industry for Concrete Components – the race was won by Master Builders Solutions, and by Dyckerhoff.

Last but not least, please allow me to share some good news on my own behalf: since July, the BFT team is complete again - with Kristin Hanneforth, we were able to gain a new editorial assistant, contact details see imprint.
