The 11th Zakobuilding Conference took place in Zakopane from March, 14th to 16th 2018. The host, Rettenmaier & Söhne, took the opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its subsidiary Rettenmaier Polska.
Over 180 invited international conference participants came from more than 60 different companies. They were able to exchange their views on current trends in the dry mortar sector and above all on the future of the whole industry.
Unlike in previous years, this year's event was therefore opened with an interdisciplinary panel discussion on the first day, which allowed the participants to speculate on the world of work in 2050. In a guest lecture on the employee of the future, that topic was further deepened from a psychological point of view.
The topics on dry mix were addressed in the usual manner with lectures and were afterwards discussed in the plenary session. The lecture given by our colleague Anna Sicinska (Poraver® Sales Manager Central and Eastern Europe) on the subject of "E modulus" met the interests of the participants. Existing customers were able to confirm the positive effect of Poraver® as an additive, and potential new customers were convinced of it.
The conference ended with a surprise performance by the well-known Polish singer Andrzej Piaseczny, who contributed to the musical entertainment during the dinner.
After this year's Zakobuilding Conference we draw an extremely positive conclusion of the event and would like to thank the host Rettenmaier & Söhne. We are already looking forward to seeing you again next year.
