NCMA will stage the International Concrete Exposition Machinery & Equipment Show (ICON Expo) February 9-10, 2018, in Indianapolis, billing it as the only machinery and equipment venue completely dedicated to the manufactured concrete masonry and hardscape industry.

"The return of an equipment show will be a valuable addition to the successful ICON-Xchange and B2B," says 2016 NCMA Chairman Patrick Sauter (King’s Material), referencing the small-scale exhibit and individual business-to-business meeting format the association has embraced in conjunction with the 2015-2017 annual conventions. “Attendees and exhibitors will have the opportunity to participate in demonstrations, educational programs and networking events to connect with business prospects.”

ICON Expo 2018 will be held in conjunction with NCMA’s annual convention, February 6-8, and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute’s Annual Meeting, February 11-14. It will include 15-plus hours of floor time around an educational component, plant tours and social events.
