Recap: Key Takeaways from 2021 World of Concrete

In one of the industry's first major in-person events since the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual World of Concrete (WOC) trade show and exhibition returned to Las Vegas from June 7-10, 2021.

Representing all segments of the construction industry, WOC is described as the commercial construction industry's largest annual international event for concrete and masonry professionals. More than 60,000 industry professionals from all around the world typically attend WOC, with approximately 1,500 exhibiting companies and more than 700,000 square feet (65,032.1 m2) of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.

As usual, CoatingsPro Magazine was on hand to take in all the festivities with its own booth, along with gathering intel on market trends and useful case studies to feature in print and digital platforms over the coming months.

With that in mind, here's a look at some of the key takeaways! CoatingsPro Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Chizik and Multimedia Specialist Bree McCullough, who were both in Las Vegas for the show, joined our latest podcast (complete transcript) to share what they learned. We also have exclusive photos and videos, which can be seen in the roundup videos below.

Stay tuned to CoatingsPro throughout the remainder of 2021 for more live coverage of industry events! We're eager to help the industry make up for lost time. You can also check out our exclusive WOC photo gallery from Las Vegas.
