"The excitement and energy we saw at the World of Concrete this year was like no other. We are very pleased with the results of the show in all categories from the increase in the number of exhibitors (up 200 companies) to the increase in attendees (up 15%) to the increase in the number of seminars taken (up 23%). These increases show not only the value that World of Concrete brings to the concrete and masonry industries but also shows that the industry is getting stronger and poised for much success in 2015," said Tom Cindric, Vice President, Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction & Real Estate.

"With the industry ramping up again education became a key asset at WOC this year. Attendees took more classes than they have in the last six years sharpening their skills for what's to come. In addition, international attendees made a big impact scouring the show for new equipment, tools, and technology to make their operations more efficient and profitable," said Jackie James, Show Director, World of Concrete.
