World of Concrete 2020 concluded its 45th edition with a very strong event for the concrete & masonry industries. This signature annual event drew approximately 54,000 registered professionals, packing the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, and featured 1,310 companies (including 255 brand new companies) exhibiting across more than 700,000 net square feet of exhibit space. International presence was also robust with 237 companies from 29 countries outside the United States. Exhibit space booked onsite for WOC 2021 resulted in just over 530,000 net square feet, nearly 77% of the WOC 2020 show
floor, consisting of 485 companies, projecting next year’s edition to be one of the largest events
in over a decade.
The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program held its 15th annual unreserved silent and
live auctions at World of Concrete 2020. The silent and live auctions broke all previous records
bringing in more than $1,217,000, with a total of over $12 million to the CIM program in the past
15 years. The CIM program is a business program that has been developed specifically for the
concrete industry to provide students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete
Industry Management. The program gives students entering the concrete work force industry
experience early in their careers.
Thousands of spectators gathered in the Bronze Lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and
thousands more watched live online, as the 18th annual SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® World
Championship took center stage at World of Concrete. It’s a battle of skill, speed and stamina
as masons and tenders from across North America put their reputations on the line for a chance
to win serious prizes.
World of Concrete 2021 will be held January 19-22; Education 18-22, back at the Las Vegas
