World of Concrete concluded the event's 47th annual event held this past week at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The event concluded with 37,000 registered professionals and over 1,100 suppliers in the expo hall, just over 150 of which were first-time exhibitors. With more than 11,000 expert-led sessions, this year's education topics included 3D printing in concrete construction, women in construction, waterproofing: the next generation of solutions, and much more.

Trends from the 2022 event include, but are not limited to:

  • Greater job site productivity, with new battery systems that deliver more power to the hand tools used to perform demanding concrete tasks, such as drilling, cutting, and demolition;
  • Introduction of equipment that is automating concrete construction activities, including 3D printing, rebar tying, and drilling overhead holes;
  • Entrance of new materials that increase contractor productivity while still ensuring durable repairs;
  • Streamlined management data management systems that enable contractors to tighten a project's critical path;
  • And product and equipment updates that reduce a project's carbon footprint and increase contractor productivity.

"The level of engagement from companies of all sizes and corners of the industry was very encouraging, especially following the past couple challenging years, and points to the revival of the trade show industry and continued growth of the construction and masonry sectors," remarked Jackie James, Group Director, World of Concrete. "We are thrilled with the positive feedback we've received from our community, buyers and suppliers alike, and look forward to seeing a wealth of new business partnerships and industry innovation resulting from this week's event."
