Last week took place the annual contruction event, the Ulm Betontage in Southern Germany.
These "Concrete Days" of Germany bring together researchers, precasters, various kinds of suppliers etc. The professional seminars combined with an efficient industry-specific expo seems to work very well: every year the key persons from the German industry are participating.
Sunny & warm Ulm was a nice place to have the event, however, when looking at the congress place and the old "concrete architecture", one could not pick up a worse place to meet. How really poor looking facades this conference center with concrete blocks had: dirty facade with element partititions really bad looking. I am sorry but not the most favorite advertisement for the industry.
Are the pictures below presenting the forward and modern look of precast element industry ?
