Beton Event 2020 – Online Concrete Day the Netherlands - LKAB Minerals
Beton Event 2020 banner

For the first time in the existence of the Dutch Concrete Day, it will not take place in a physical hall, but we will only meet online at the Concrete Event 2020.

The digital fair is open to interested visitors every Thursday morning in November between 09:00 and 12:00. The LKAB Minerals Magnetite Team will then be ready for you in the digital booth and will provide a digital session on the 2nd and 3rd Thursday morning – 12 and 19 November.

A first time for everything

As every year, LKAB Minerals had registered as an exhibitor for this year’s Concrete Day, which is traditionally held the third Thursday in November. Unfortunately, the arrival of the Coronavirus is currently preventing us from being indoors with many people. Yet the concrete association did not want to let this annual event pass by just like that. They, therefore, opted for a digital version of the Concrete Day as an alternative.

Of course, we had to think about this. On the other hand, we have now also gained experience with online webinars that we organize ourselves. On top of that, visits to customers are now more often done in an online environment. So organizing an entire event online and participating in it, that certainly seemed a good alternative to us.

Exhibitor at the online Concrete Event

Just like a regular fair, you can participate in the online Concrete Event 2020 in different ways. Visitors can register, visit various stands, hear keynote speakers on the main stage or attend a “break-out” session. This break-out session gives an exhibitor 20 minutes to discuss a specific topic that visitors to the Concrete Event will find interesting.

LKAB Minerals will provide two online break-out sessions. On November 12, between 9.45-10.05 AM, we will give a first session in which we will show when applying heavy concrete is a good option. During our second break-out session on November 19, also between 9.45-10.00 AM, we will show real-life examples of Dutch construction projects that use heavy concrete.

A digital event is, of course, different from a physical fair. We cannot have a cup of coffee together in the booth, but it is still possible to talk to each other. When you come to the digital exhibition stand, you can choose to share your camera and microphone. Just like with a Zoom, Teams or Google meeting, you see each other in a virtual space, and you can talk and share documents. It is also possible to send one of our colleagues a Direct Message so you can talk one-on-one with each other.

And that cup of coffee? We would be happy to offer that to you another time. Because just like everyone else, we also miss personal contact. Fortunately, there is the technique to keep in touch, albeit differently than usual.

We would like to see you online at our stand or as a visitor to one of our digital break-out sessions.

If you do not have time to visit us in this way, we cordially invite you to contact one of our Dutch colleagues directly; Leon Hendriks or Demi van Doormaal.
