Each year at World of Concrete, the Scaffold & Access Industry Association hosts a networking reception for members and potential members to gather and see each other. The event has become a staple for SAIA members so that they have an opportunity to connect between the Association’s Committee Week and Annual Convention.

World of Concrete is an annual international tradeshow dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. In 2024, it will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center with exhibits open January 23-25 and education occurring Jan. 22-25.

This year, World of Concrete will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2024 and show organizers are expecting quite a turnout. “World of Concrete has been serving the global concrete and masonry construction industries for 50 years,” show organizers said. “We connect and educate buyers and sellers through live and digital events throughout the year, facilitated via and WOC360. Our goal is to provide this important community with the connections, intelligence, and opportunities that help customers grow, do business, and make better informed business decisions.”

According to Kevin Thornton, senior vice president of construction, Informa Markets, more than 300,000 concrete contractors are employed in the United States and “they represent the backbone of the American and international workforce. World of Concrete is proud to support laborers in education and connection providing opportunity to advance the industry toward enhanced sustainability, efficiency and safety, and continuing growth.”

Building on success

During the 2023 event, WoC brought in 48,009 registered professionals from more than 120 countries and took more than 587,000 net square footage (NSF) of the convention center, with both indoor and outdoor spaces full of product displays, demonstrations and competitions.

“The 2023 edition of World of Concrete far exceeded our expectations,” said Jackie James, vice president, World of Concrete. “The crowded show floor and packed educational sessions proves how essential meeting face to face is, that it remains important now more than ever to have a space to connect, to learn, to share across the concrete, masonry and construction industries as a vital contributor to our economy. In-person attendance is on its way back to pre-pandemic levels and the World of Concrete event leads global trends in construction.”
