World of Concrete

The World of Concrete is an annual trade show for the commercial construction industry. It is held each year either in the months of January or February for four days in Las Vegas, Nevada.[1] This event is a show where products, resources, and information related to concrete construction are shared and displayed. More than 1,800 companies and suppliers from all over the world come together in the 900,000-square-foot (84,000 m2) Las Vegas Convention Center to show, demonstrate, do business, and answer questions about what they are showing.

Besides the vendors, there are demonstrations and seminars. The demonstrations are actual work site conditions where attendees can see the product that they are interested in put to the test. Seminars are held throughout the event. There are 90 minute or three hour sessions to choose from. Some of the seminars are also certification programs where attendees can be certified in different targeted fields. Some examples of seminar topics include concrete production, concrete technology, and leadership & management.

Habitual attendees include commercial contractors, concrete contractors, ready mix producers, rental center managers, and concrete pumpers.

Informa acquired the conference from Hanley Wood in 2014.[2]
