T he busy 2019 tradeshow season begins with World of Concrete, which looks to be the largest event in over a decade. With a strong economy and a viable and active construc- tion sector, the concrete and masonry industries will converge at the Las Vegas Convention Center Jan. 22 to 25 (seminars are 21 to 25). World of Concrete 2018 was already the largest event in nine years, with 58,000 registered professionals and 1,564 leading in- dustry suppliers exhibiting across more than 746,000 net sq ft of space. Show officials are ready to go big- ger. "There are some positive changes to the show floor for 2019," said Kevin Archibald, World of Concrete show manager. "We have moved the masonry area to Central Hall and technology to the North Hall to ac- commodate both of these growing sectors of our in- dustry. We also have several new events in the works, and a multi-day expansion of the Masonry Madness events happening in the Bronze Lot." The world-class education program will include 180-plus sessions including 90-minute seminars, three-hour seminars, 40-plus industry train- ings and skill-building events, along with more hands-on training opportunities and interactive workshops than ever before. The recently updat- ed World of Concrete website will have all these events, plus luncheons and special tours, an up- dated 2019 floor plan (including exhibitors and products listings) and pricing/registration infor- mation. Of course, for our readers, World of Con- crete is all about the products. The newest skid steers, excavators, generators, light towers, wheel loaders, work tools, engines, OEM systems and be- yond can be explored both at inside and outdoor booths. If you're attending, check out these exhib- itor products at the show. If you're not, explore them further online via the web addresses at the end of each announcement. For more info overall, visit .
