World of Concrete moves ahead with in-person event in Las Vegas.
Organizers of the World of Concrete show have issued a statement saying that the 2022 edition will, indeed, take place, live and in person from January 18 to 20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Education sessions will take place 17 to 20.
“Our community is eager to reconnect, with new attendees and exhibitors registering every day, and we are committed to providing that platform for them,” explained the announcement.
With COVID-19 and the Omicron variant being top of many people’s minds, organizers are putting a focus on putting on as safe and event as possible, while still allowing the industry to connect. As such, the show will follow all local health guidelines. Hand sanitizing stations will be strategically placed throughout the venue, and the show will feature widened aisles to facilitate social distancing. Event staff will also be following an enhanced sanitation schedule.
Nevada has a mask mandate in place, requiring masks to be worn in all indoor public places, including casinos, meeting spaces, convention centers, and restaurants and bars, regardless of vaccination status.
“We want to reassure you that the event will take place,” the announcement continued, “and that we will put safety at the heart of the event experience, so we are able to reconnect and get back to business, while keeping our community safe.”
Organizers are also working and communicating with the City of Las Vegas and local health officials and will provide updates if the health and safety program changes as the show dates approach.
World of Concrete has been serving the global concrete and masonry construction industries for 47 years, connecting and educating buyers and sellers through live and digital events. The show attracts manufacturers and distributors of equipment, tools, products and services for the commercial construction, concrete and masonry industries to more than 700,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.
