World of Concrete 2009 Delivers Positive Results

World of Concrete (WOC) 2009, held February 3 - 6, 2009 delivered another strong event with 65 287 visitors. This 35th edition of WOC confirms that even in a challenging economy, attendees and exhibitors understand the importance and value of this annual international event for the commercial concrete and masonry industry.

Exhibitors met and networked with qualified buyers at WOC and took this opportunity to exchange ideas on sustaining business, obtaining the education necessary to be up-to-date on new products and technologies, and learn about new ways to run a smart and lean business during this challenging time for the construction sector.

World of Concrete has been recognized by Tradeshow Week as one of the Fastest 50 Tradeshows in both 2007 and 2008, and WOC 2009 did not disappoint with special product and action areas including The Producer Center, Material Handling, Concrete Repair and Demolition, World of Masonry, and Technology for Construction.

World of Concrete is proud to have been selected to participate in the 2009 International Buyer Program. World of Concrete Management and the U.S. Commercial Service worked closely in the global promotion of the show bringing International buyers and exhibitors together to expand business both domestically and overseas. As part of the program, delegations from all over the globe attended World of Concrete to network with other international visitors as well as connect with exhibitors interested in exporting goods and services.

The returning GREENSITE area on the show floor showcased the latest green build technologies along with displays, video and live presentations, and limitless information about this exciting new aspect of the construction industry. The first annual GREENSITE Luncheon & Forum, sponsored by Holcim, forum provided contractors, producers and architects a place to share ideas on how to be a part of this growing construction segment.

The next edition of World of Concrete will be held again in Las Vegas from February 2 - 5, 2010, with seminars beginning on February 1, 2010, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
