As a consequence of the recent cancellations of physical events until February 2021, drymix.info and its Members and Partners, as well as The Middle East Drymix Mortar Association MEDMA e.V. and The South East Asia Drymix Mortar Association SEADMA, Ltd. have decided to stage a new Live Event Online:

The 4th MORTAR CONVENTION will take place on 20. October 2020:

3:00 to 19:00 Singapore
from 10:30 to 16:30 Mumbai
from 9:00 to 15:00 Dubai
from 8:00 to 14:00 Istanbul
from 7:00 to 13:00 Cape Town/Munich (CEST)

This timespan is suited for drymix mortar experts situated in Australia/New Zealand, the Far East, South East Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East (= all of Asia), Africa and Europe. The event is intended as a backup for the lost occasions to meet in Istanbul, Karlsruhe, Jakarta, Dubai, Manila and Riyadh (all those meetings had to be postponed into 2021.

In the past few weeks we have worked hard with our partners and friends and are proud to already present a rough program (see below).
