Conference description

Gulf Coating Show 2023 and The Middle Drymix Mortar Association MEDMA e.V. invite the Construction and Real Estate Industry of the Middle East to

Drymix Mortars in the Middle East 2023, The 16th Annual MEDMA Conference

takeing place at Sharjah Expo on the occasion of the Gulf Coating Show on 11. October 2023.

We will welcome Drymix Mortar experts from countries of and around the Near and Middle East and beyond to this important opportunity for our industry.

The extreme dynamic of construction in the United Arab Emirates requires visionary

building methods. The old „bag by bag“ approach is obsolete and professional workforce is scarce. The UAE are already a lighthouse to the entire region when it

comes to automated handling of drymix mortars as renders, plasters and flooring

screeds on the jobsites.

Getting drymix mortars in silos right on the jobsites and handle it with sophisticated

pumps and mixers speeds up the workflow tremendously. Our MEDMA workshop is all about specifying, sourcing and handling large quantities of topquality drymix mortars.

The full-day Conference and Industry Showcase brings together the  community of drymix mortar experts. The event features presentations by national and international experts as well as an Industry Showcase section for the information of the delegates. Conference Language is English.

The comprehensive program will be focused on lectures on recent developments in the drymix mortar industry. We expect manufacturers and raw material suppliers from both the drymix mortar and cement industry, as well as architects, contractors, developers and consultants.
