World of Concrete 2021 announces new show datesPublished 2/12, 2020 at 14:00
After discussions with key stakeholders and feedback from industry leading concrete and masonry associations, World of Concrete has made the proactive decision to reschedule WOC 2021 from January to June.
The decision to move the dates back several months was not easily reached; however, it was felt it was the right choice for all involved. WOC will now take place 8 to 10 June with educational offerings being scheduled for 7 to 10 June, all at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We have a commitment to our exhibitors and attendees to provide a valuable and productive face to face experience at WOC each year,” said Jackie James, group director, World of Concrete. “This is the first time in our 46 year history we have been faced with circumstances that have caused us to reschedule the event. We feel the new June dates will provide everyone with the necessary time to plan effectively and allow us to reimagine WOC for a different time of the year. Moving the event from winter to late spring in 2021 will allow for additional outdoor activities everyone can enjoy in the great city of Las Vegas, including top notch exhibits, new product demos and exciting spectator events.”
The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) has been awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) Star facility accreditation by ISSA, the World-wide cleaning industry association. The GBAC program is considered the gold standard for safe facilities and was designed to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including Covid-19. World of Concrete is set to be one of the first large scale events to occupy The Las Vegas Convention Center’s €830M West Hall expansion in June, which will add 130,000m2 of space to the existing 300,000m2 campus. In addition to the exhibit hall, the expansion will feature a striking outdoor plaza, a grand atrium and state of the art design and technology.
The World of Concrete organisers look forward to continuing its role in driving the industry forward, connecting communities and supporting businesses. They further look forward to seeing attendees in Las Vegas in June 2021 and will continue to post updates to its website as soon as they become available.
