World of Concrete 2019 was the largest it’s been in more than a decade, drawing more than 60,000 registered professionals to Las Vegas and featuring more than 1,500 companies, including 259 brand-new companies.

Exhibitors spanned more than 776,800 net sq. ft. at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“This year has been a very successful event,” says Jackie James, group director of World of Concrete. “World of Concrete 2019 attendees, both domestic and international, experienced the newest products, technologies and educational offerings. Having our largest event in 10 years proves that the construction sector is strong globally. The education program was well received with a 5 percent increase in attendance.”

Kevin Archibald, show manager of World of Concrete, agrees that the show’s outcome reflects the current strength of the industry.

“The positive energy indicates a strong year ahead,” Archibald says. “This year brought in record-breaking attendees, exceptional exhibits, and a very solid rebook rate of just over 538,000 net sq. ft. of exhibit space, rebooking 70 percent of the total 2019 square footage onsite for next year’s show.”

Next year’s World of Concrete is scheduled for Feb. 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
