Cemex hosted nearly 70 customers at its first-ever building-materials forum on Aug. 23 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to the company, the clients who attended the day-long forum learned about Cemex’s safety practices, as well as how to improve safety culture and trends in the construction industry. They also gained insight into upcoming changes in the construction industry.

During the form, Cemex experts from across the west region presented insights about labor shortages in the industry, forecast growth in Arizona and how changes can affect business planning. Daniel Bachman, senior economist for Deloitte, delivered the keynote address for the event. During his presentation, he covered U.S. and regional economic trends.

The event concluded with a panel discussion, where construction industry experts shared the latest developments in the Arizona market, including changes in construction standards and how to tackle them, Cemex adds.

“I think it’s important to see what’s coming in our industry and work together to find solutions so we are ready for those changes,” says Eric Wittmann, west region president for Cemex. “We’re working to lead innovation in products and technology for the building-materials industry, and these types of meetings help keep the dialogue open with our customers to better understand their needs.”
