Slowly But Surely Gets Back to Normal

Published: 30/12, 2022

It’s time again for World of Concrete, the only international construction show held every year, including during the pandemic (thanks to some rescheduling in 2021). This is what the show looks like for 2023.

The show takes place January 17-19—somewhat earlier due to Conexpo-ConAgg’s triennial appearance at the same venue, the Las Vegas Convention Center. But despite it being “a Conexpo year,” the 2023 edition of WoC boasts a pretty good line up. Nearly 1,200 companies are booked to exhibit at this point, approximately 100 more than last year and not far from 2020, when Conexpo was again on the horizon.


A great reunion expected

Most suppliers in the concrete sawing and drilling, concrete floor grinding and polishing as well as some demolition equipment suppliers will exhibit at WoC. Many of these same companies were on hand at Bauma, which yielded fewer innovations than expected. WoC may well be the same from a news standpoint.

WoC is also shorter than previous years, having been reduced from four days to three. Veteran attendees will recall the largely exhibit areas on the last day, so the abbreviated schedule may actually work well when it comes to travel and exhibitor logistics. As

Visitors are expected from all over the world, but international attendance may still be lower than past years due to the protracted pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and economic considerations. Still, the convenience to the massive North American construction market bodes well for the show’s success.

Ausual, WoC organizers have made it easy to get to and from the Convention Center with busses from the major hotels, as well as the monorail. (The touted underground high-speed transport is still a few years away, though the Convention Center’s own loop is operational.)  Visitors can also take in a wide range of seminars during the show. Information on times and topics are available at WoC’s website.
