The FIB Symposium is an annual event, organized by FIB National Member Groups in varying locations around the globe, bringing together the local concrete industry and a large group of international concrete experts and structural engineers.

The FIB symposium 2016 will take place at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (GSB) campus, which is situated in the V&A Waterfront district.

This event is intended to bring together practicing engineers, scientists, specifiers, concrete technologists, researchers and others from around the world to share knowledge and experience on current developments in concrete technology and structural concrete design, with a particular focus on performance-based approaches.
