Celebrating 50 years of World of Concrete
By Adam FreillConcrete Construction
International event for the concrete and masonry industries brings the industry to Las Vegas this January.
World of Concrete (WOC) is gearing up for its much anticipated 50th edition at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). Presented by Informa Markets, the annual event brings together the newest products, leading-industry suppliers, resources, and valuable education necessary for concrete and masonry professionals.
In 2023, WOC drew more than 48,000 registered professionals, with bustling foot traffic throughout the show, high engagement with the comprehensive educational offerings, and overall enthusiasm from participants, underscoring the industry’s critical need for in-person connections.
WOC 2024 will feature more than 1,200 exhibitors spanning more than 700,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor exhibit and event space, as well as a world-class education program. This year’s show runs from January 23 to 25, with education sessions available starting on the 22nd.
The show is set to take place in the North, Central and South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as in the Silver and Bronze Lots for outdoor exhibits and events.
Central Hall is the place to check out material handling products, from trucks, excavators, paving equipment and more for material delivery, distribution, concrete placement, and earth moving, along with commercial construction concrete and masonry tools, and the ever-popular Work Truck LIVE!
Work Truck LIVE! highlights innovations in the design and configuration of work trucks as well as innovative accessories that will help contractors increase safety and productivity.
Concrete producers, and contractors looking for information about construction technology, precast products, concrete masonry and concrete reinforcement will be well served by the demonstrations, products and services on display in the North Hall.
In addition to all things masonry, the South Hall in the LVCC will also feature concrete repair and demolition, and surface and decorative products, including the latest in surface preparation equipment, scarifying, grinding, sawing equipment, sealants, joint fillers, coatings, and cleaning solutions.
The outdoor areas, in the Silver Lot and Bronze Lot, will feature live demos and heavy equipment, as well as championships, skills challenges and demos.
Starting a day before the exhibits open, the 2024 World of Concrete Education Program will offer a variety of in-depth learning options for concrete and masonry professionals covering such topics as technical applications, business best practices, project management, and safety-relevant topics for every skill level from beginner to experienced.
