The World of Concrete trade show will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. The industry’s first and largest international trade show dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Exhibits are open January 23-25, while education events are January 22-25.

The trade show and education conference is attended by more than 60,000 concrete and masonry construction professionals with expositions by over 1,500 equipment manufacturers and distributors of equipment, tools, products and services for the commercial construction, concrete and masonry industries.

The yearly event centers around the latest innovations in efficiency, safety, and sustainability within the concrete and masonry sectors. World of Concrete 2024 will shine a light on the well-established brands and industry stalwarts who have made a significant impact on the industry over the last 50 years.

While there will be a celebration of those companies and individuals who have already made an impact, there’s also a focus on inspiring industry involvement by encouraging participation, interaction, and community solidarity.

Educational Opportunities

Education is also a high priority with three days dedicated to hands-on training. More than 50 new subjects will be introduced to the 2024 educational agenda, addressing transformative project-specific techniques like the implementation of new materials and tools such as 3D printing.

There will be expanded certification seminars, interactive workshops and accredited courses. Training will include concrete repair, wall forming and reinforcement, robotics, concrete paving and much more.

“World of Concrete is undoubtedly one of the most important gatherings for professionals in the concrete and masonry industries, serving as a nexus for fostering growth, facilitating connections and cultivating excellence in the market,” says Jackie James, Vice President of World of Concrete. “The wealth of knowledge shared here, and the education courses provided, equip concrete and masonry professionals with the most insight to upcoming trends that are not accessible anywhere else. They come to WOC to see the advancements in technology that are continuously evolving the practice of construction.”

Over 1,300 companies from 34 countries come together at World of Concrete to share cutting-edge tools, machinery and materials that will be setting future trends and innovations.

Exhibitors in a number of categories from material handling, work trucks and technology to materials like Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), cement and coatings, will be spread over 700,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor exhibit space.
