As is traditional, the IACDS Diamond Awards were presented at the bauma networking event. This year, two awards were presented along with one honorary member award.

The International Association of Concrete Drillers & Sawers (IACDS) held its networking event at bauma as usual. Hosted by Julie White and Michael Findeis, some 110 people, from over 30 different countries attended, comprising of contractors, manufacturers and distributors from the concrete cutting industry. At the networking event (held on Thursday 11 April) the 2019 Diamond Award winners were officially recognised, with this year two awards being presented. One was, as usual, the Job Category Award, for the most spectacular concrete sawing and drilling project, with a new award also being presented this year, the Product Category Award. 

The winner of the Job Category Award was Concrete Coring Company from Osaka in Japan, whilst the winner of the Product Category Award was Braun Maschinenfabrik GmbH from Vöcklabruck, Austria.
