09 February 2024
World of Concrete 2024 welcomed nearly 60,000 registered attendees for its 50th anniversary this year, an increase of 23 percent from last year’s 48,000. Covering more than 700,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, this year’s WoC event saw 1,400 companies exhibit, including 450 international firms as well as 325 first-time exhibitors. The event also had an all-time high 185 education sessions, organizers announced.
“Every year, World of Concrete serves as the cornerstone where concrete and masonry professionals exchange knowledge and hone skills that propel businesses forward. We are proud to host the global meeting point that resources the tradespeople who are building the future of America,” said Jackie James, VP of World of Concrete. “We emphasize creating real-world scenarios, hands-on situations to try and test products and share expertise, which is what makes WOC so unique and our community so special. We look forward to continuing to share the latest and greatest in concrete and masonry for another 50 years to come.”
In honor of the 50th anniversary, World of Concrete also donated 50 trees to the Las Vegas Tree Initiative. The ongoing program aims to lower the urban heat island effect that currently makes Las Vegas the fastest-warming city in the United States.
“World of Concrete continues to serve as a hub for exploration and innovation as leading exhibitors announced new products on the show floor, administering first-time reveals of new software, tools and machinery poised to increase efficiencies and safety,” show organizers added.
World of Concrete will return to the Las Vegas Convention Center January 21-23 (Education 20-23), 2025.
