World of Concrete - at Las Vegas Returns with Strong Attendance

Concrete professionals kicked off the year with the well-attended 49th annual event that focused on product innovations, environmental impacts, and raised record-breaking auction funds for educational programs.

Informa Markets’ World of Concrete, the world’s largest tradeshow held at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) saw 48,009 registrations from over 120 countries. The World of Concrete is a critical meeting place for industry advancement and for fostering the growing concrete and masonry construction industries.

“The 2023 edition of World of Concrete far exceeded our expectations. The crowded show floor and packed educational sessions proved that it remains important now more than ever to have a space to connect, to learn, to share across the concrete, masonry, and construction industries as a vital contributor to our economy. In-person attendance is on its way back to pre-pandemic levels and the World of Concrete event leads global trends in construction,” said Jackie James, Vice President, World of Concrete.

World of Concrete took more than 587,000 net square footage (NSF) of the convention center, with both indoor and outdoor spaces full of product displays, demonstrations, and competitions. Notable highlights included unveiling of new innovations such as the first ever Mobile 3D Robotic Concrete Printer and AI Site Map Printer, top of the line work trucks with electric batteries and aerodynamic improvements, and the widest range of original manufactured equipment from excavators to wireless concrete sensors, AI-based platforms, and modern materials like the eco-driven Autoclaved Aerated Concrete.

Returning for the 18th consecutive year, the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program held its Silent & Live Auctions, generating a record-breaking fund of more than $2.1 million. Live auction and online donations fueled the grant for the program designed to prepare students for the concrete workforce early in their careers. The CIM program provides students with a Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management, a business program specifically developed for the concrete industry. The proceeds from the 2023 CIM Auction will benefit the CIM National Steering Committee (NSC) and support the current CIM programs at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas State University, California State University – Chico, South Dakota State University, the Executive MBA program, as well as help fund scholarships. World of Concrete has also donated $15,000 to the CIM Education Program for the second consecutive year.

The highly anticipated 2023 edition of the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® competition saw winner mason Michael Schlund and his tender Arron Kowalski, who laid 759 bricks in one hour; Schlund was crowned “World’s Best Bricklayer” leaving with a new Ford F250 4x4 Super Duty truck, an Essick Pro12 Mixer, and more than $15,000 in cash and prizes. Mason Scott Tuttle and tender Brian Tuttle took second place with 716 bricks in one hour. Brian is a former World Champion and winner of SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN. The event’s second most coveted award, the SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN®, went to mason Mario Hernandez and mason tender Gerson Lux, who built “the most sellable wall.”

World of Concrete also offered more than 160 technical sessions, including hands-on training, safety expertise, and business development. Noted new additions to the 2023 education program were eight concrete basics and leadership courses presented in Spanish, a revamped three-hour comprehensive concrete repair track, and new workshops focusing specifically on women in construction.

“Over 300,000 concrete contractors are employed in the United States and represent the backbone of the American and international workforce,” said Kevin Thornton, SVP of Construction, Informa Markets. “World of Concrete is proud to support laborers in education and connection providing opportunity to advance the industry toward enhanced sustainability, efficiency and safety, and continuing growth.”
