World of Concrete 2021 concluded its 46th edition last week, reportedly drawing tens of thousands of industry professionals to Las Vegas.

According to Informa Markets, which hosts World of Concrete, the trade show featured more than 650 exhibiting companies across just under 300,000 net sq. ft. of exhibit space. The 2021 edition of World of Concrete was postponed from January, and Informa Markets says it represented the first large-scale event to take place in Las Vegas.

“World of Concrete is grateful for the support of all the participating exhibitors and attendees who braved the heat of a June event and paved the way for an even larger and stronger return in January 2022,” says Jackie James, group director of World of Concrete. “We would like to thank them along with our cosponsoring associations and media partners who supported this endeavor throughout a very challenging 15 months leading up to this important industry event.”

The Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority debuted the Las Vegas Convention Center’s $1 billion, 1.4 million-sq.-ft. West Hall expansion at World of Concrete with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The addition of the West Hall takes the total square feet of meeting space at the convention center to 14 million.

“We are thrilled to be returning to the live event format, especially in the home of the exhibitions industry in the U.S.: Las Vegas,” says Nan Walsh, president of North America at Informa Markets. “There is an unparalleled magic about in-person connection – from sharing laughs with old friends, creating new ones, learning from industry experts and seeing and feeling the latest products and innovations. We are so happy to be the first large-scale trade show to return to the show floor in the U.S., and the first to use the Las Vegas Convention Center’s incredible new West Hall, and through that partnership I believe we are signaling a return to business and connection that is needed now more than ever.”

World of Concrete 2022 will be held Jan. 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
