A large congress

Anyone walking past the main entrance of the Valencia Conference Centre during the first few days of October might have thought the building was to be demolished. An enormous wheel loader stood outside the building. In actual fact, the II National Construction Aggregates Congress was being held at the Centre and one of the exhibitors was using the entranceway to display its product so it couldn?t be missed.

However, this was not where things ended as there was also a hydraulic excavator on the stage in the main auditorium. This was a perfect illustration of the fact that the Valencia Conference Centre is so versatile that anything is possible.

Against this attention-grabbing backdrop numerous experts from the extractive industry as well as environment and infrastructure experts discussed the current industry situation which has been seriously affected by the crisis in the construction industry.
