Add the World of Concrete 2021 conference to the list of events cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After discussions with key stakeholders and feedback from industry-leading concrete and masonry associations, WOC 2021 was rescheduled from January to June 8 to 10, 2021 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,” Jackie James, group director, World of Concrete said in a media statement.
“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 allows us to reimagine WOC for a different time of the year.”
Moving the event from Winter to late Spring this year will allow for additional outdoor activities including exhibits, new product demos and spectator events.
The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) has been awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association – considered the gold standard for safe facilities, and was designed to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including COVID-19.
World of Concrete will be one of the first large-scale events to occupy The Las Vegas Convention Center’s $980 million West Hall expansion in June, which will add 1.4 million sq. ft. of space to the existing 3.2 million-sq.-ft. 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.
Registration for WOC 2021 will open online in early 2021. For more information, please visit www.worldofconcrete.com.
