As you will have seen from previous website posts, IDE have been supporting PDi magazine with the Democon Demolition Conference in Brazil in August 2015 and have arranged for Former President Steve Jack to attend on behalf of IDE. 

Unfortunately those arrangements were in vain as the conference has now been cancelled. This is the email from the organisers:-

“Due to the situation in Brazil that has changed drastically over the last two years there is a great reluctance among the world’s manufacturers in our field to attend any construction show or conference in Brazil for the time being. I have really talked to a big number of our clients about this.

We cancelled our Forum in 2014 and we have done it in 2015 too. But we are in talks with the Brazilian trade show Concrete Show to do something in either 2017 or 2018 but it all depends on how the economy will develop over there.  I am personally very sorry about this as I think Brazil has a great potential and I am really waiting for that things will change.”
