ClayTech UK is the largest exhibition of suppliers to the UK heavy clay industry, with its key role as a showcase of innovation, technical learning opportunities and the networking event for all of those involved in the heavy clay industry.

Following consideration and with a strong sense of responsibility, the decision was taken by the ICTa ClayTech UK organising committee to postpone the physical exhibition until 2022, and host the event virtually this year, with emphasis on delivering exceptional engagement, networking and knowledge exchange between remote participants.

The webinar content is focused around Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for the industry, particularly those studying for the Clay Quarry Managers and the L2 and L3 Clay Technology courses. The webinar preludes the ICTa Annual Meeting 2021.
