In 2018, the International Association of Concrete Drillers & Sawers, IACDS, will be celebrating the Annual Convention, in Tokyo (Japan), on May 21st-23rd.

It will be celebrated in the framework of the Japanese Association General Assembly, to be held in May 23rd, 2018.

The Convention combines professional knowledge-sharing through a number of conference sessions, as well as a showcase of the best products and services presented by the relevant companies of the trade (in the Exhibition area).
