LEWIS CENTER, OHIO – February 7, 2017 – The American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) announce the second co-location of the 2017 ACPA Building the Momentum Education Conference and NRMCA ConcreteWorks conference.

pumpers, but also with ready mixed producers and members of the NRMCA. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to attend one of NRMCA’s education seminars as well as ACPA’s. Several events and receptions will also be jointly attended.

“Each conference will have its own identity, but the exhibit hall will feature both pumping equipment as well as ready mixed trucks along with vendors from both the ACPA and NRMCA,” says Christi Collins, Executive Director of the ACPA. “We are excited about the continuation of synergy and collaboration between our organizations that began at last year’s event.”
