For those in the commercial construction trades, and specifically the concrete and masonry industries, WOC (World of Concrete) is a renowned trade show. The upcoming show will take place in February 4-7th, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The multi-day conference offers plenty of chances to collect professional development certifications and continuing education credits, learn about new technology and equipment, and network with professionals in the industry from all over the country and the world. The 2018 World of Concrete show shattered attendance records and proved to be one of the largest shows of the past decade.
About World of Concrete
World of Concrete showcases original equipment manufacturers and the tools, products and equipment needed and used in the concrete and masonry industries. Beyond just getting to see what’s new, visitors are also invited to learn about new technologies, and distributors are able to see what new product lines they can offer their customers. At the time of publication, there were three confirmed featured demo exhibits, which include: MB Crusher America, which will be demoing two crusher buckets; OZTEC Industries, which will be demoing their patented Rebar Shaker®; and Ford Commercial Vehicles, which will be demoing the Ford Super Duty®. There is a wealth of knowledge that occurs at World of Concrete, and it is widely known as one of the most – if not the most – influential shows in the industry.
